Preston Bryant in Kaine Administration
This has been tossed around some on the blogosphere but it is official, Del. Preston Bryant has been picked by Kaine to the Secretary of Natural Resources post. The Roanoke Times has a story here. We now have yet another special election on the docket. The 23rd delegate seat is in Lynchburg and part of Amherst County. Robert Garber challenged Bryant in the primaries last June, so I have to assume he would at least consider running for this seat. I will also work to find out when this special election will be, as well as who is going to run for this. Apparently the dems must think this seat is vulnerable, so we will see what happens.I have also heard that Kaine has his last big press conference tomorrow before he goes on vacation, so perhaps we will hear a few more appointments in that. I will be sure to update you folks as soon as I know anything.UPDATE: Here are the election Results for the 23rd HOD seat:Kaine 51.8%-48.2%Bolling 52.9%-47.1%McDonnell 52.7%-47.3%Bush 55.1%-44.9%It appears it is a winnable district for the dems, so we need to make sure we run a good candidate and execute the election well. If we do that, I think the GOP should win.
