It looks like Ken Cuccinelli is the next GOP nominee:

Ken Cuccinelli, seeking governorís seat, stands to get an edge with Va. GOPís switch to convention

By Anita Kumar, Published: June 15

RICHMOND ó Virginiaís outspoken attorney general, Ken Cuccinelli II, received a significant boost Friday in his battle to secure the Republican nomination for governor when the state GOPís governing board voted to hold a convention, instead of a primary election, to pick its candidate next year.

Cuccinelli is expected to fare far better among conservative party stalwarts who will attend the convention than his rival for the nomination, Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling, who most likely would have been more attractive to less -conservative and moderate voters in a primary, especially in a state where primaries are open to members of either major party.

In choosing a convention, the Republican governing board actually reversed course in what is shaping up to be a contentious and expensive race.

Despite the setback, Bolling ruled out a lawsuit, even though he had previously hired high-profile elections lawyer Jan Baran to weigh his options.

Oh joy. Saged, reported, called the cops, etc.

Seriously, the idea of Governor Cuccinelli is just depressing.

Is there any news on the Democratic nomination? I've read McAuliffe and Warner might run, but there hasn't seemed to be much news on it...

Warner won't run again; I'd heard that Dragas wanted the nomination, but of course that won't happen now.

Don't do it, Virgina! Don't hold a convention instead of a primary! You'll regret it, just as a lot of people in Utah regret having a convention system every election year.
