The bigger news out there appears to be the crazy weather (I woke up at 6 AM in the center of The Perfect Storm, the weather as I type this? Sunny.)

The story that should be a bigger splash? The Virginia Democratic Primary which opened their polls today as the three Democratic candidates for Governor face-off. At first I was a little interested in the race but now my interest has waned again. With more rain in the forecast today, I’m not expecting anything but lackluster participation totals for today’s race. That being said it’s no longer absolutely safe that front-runner Terry McAuliffe will walk away with a victory, who knows if Brian Moran or even Creigh Deeds could walk away with an upset.

Polls are open til 7 P.M. statewide if you are a resident and are itching to be vocal on the issue.

(UPDATE: And look what happened… Deeds upsets and wins it)

Democrats Face Off In Virginia Gubernatorial Primary Debate Tomorrow

novaWell thanks to the rampant calls I’ve gotten from the candidates, I’ve become a smidge more interested in the Gubernatorial race in Virginia. While there’s only one G.O.P. candidate, the Democrats have a primary where three candidates will be facing off. The candidates: Creigh Deeds, Terry McAuliffe, and Brian Moran will debate one last time at NOVA in Annandale at 2 PM. The post has an article up previewing the debate and will stream the event live for those that might want to check in.

I don’t know if it’s me becoming more interested in Politics (maybe I did catch the bug when I moved here) but if I have a minute tomorrow- I might check in. Then again I might be the only one, is anybody else really interested in the Governor’s race?

Will.I.Am To Rally With Terry McAuliffe Tonight At Clarendon Ballroom


Thanks to the phone banks with the Terry McAuliffe campaign, I heard that he and will be down the street tonight at Clarendon Ballroom. The event is titled, “A Night with of the Black Eyed Peas” and proceeds will go to McAuliffe’s gubernatorial campaign.

This is less of a political message and more of a, “if you want to see and don’t mind throwing money at Terry McAuliffe to do it- here’s your chance!

Terry seems to know a few famous people, later this week he’s holding a rally at NOVA in Annandale with Bill Clinton. Well that makes sense since he ran Hillary’s Presenditial campaign and is a former DNC chairman.
