Opening in the 17th?
I would point out that Houck is 3rd in the Dem leadership in the Senate, so with Colgan widely expected to retire in '07, he may not want to give that power up. Time will tell.
Has anyone else heard if this rumor is true?
UPDATE: According to MR JMS; Chris Yakabouski, a supervisor (I am assuming from Spotsylvania County) is also going to throw his hat into the ring for the GOP nod for this seat. I also hear that Shaun Kenney does not live in the district. Perhaps he can come on here and clarify that.
UPDATE2: Shaun Kenney has not heard anything definite about this seat opening up. Just thought I would let everyone know that the GOP chairman of 1/3 of the district has heard nothing.
