Elephant Ears

This blog is dedicated to the political happenings in the Valley and Southwest Virginia. As the the name implies, this blog will have posts based on what is heard by this elephant's (GOPer's) ears. It is also a great treat to get while at the county fair or a carnival.

Candidates in the 25th

Over at Commonwealth Watch, Poli Amateur has a post on the dems recruitment of a candidate for the 25th Senate district if Creigh Deeds wins the AGs race and has to step down.
They have about 4 possible names for the dem nomiation. They also say one Republican has voiced interest: Keith Drake who is chairman of the Albemarle County GOP.
I would say Rob Bell would have to be a front runner for the GOP nod, since he is well liked in his district and is also from Albemarle County. If Bell were to get the nod and win, Drake might then run for Bell's HOD seat.
Either way, I don't think a GOP has much of a chance in a district that is 25% C'ville and the rest of it is 50-50 at best.
Hopefully we won't have to worry about any of this b/c Bob McDonnell is going to beat Deeds.
Does anyone have any thoughts about this?
