Virginia Republicans, Please Run Ken Cuccinelli Against Mark Warner in 2014!


No, as a progressive and strong Democrat who believes the formerly “Grand” Old Party has gone completely off the far-right-wing/tinfoil-hat/John Birch Society deep end, I most certainly don’t have the best political interests of Virginia Republicans at heart. Which is why I want to STRONGLY encourage the chatter among certain right-wing bloggers and other Virginia Republicans about running Ken Kookinelli next year against Mark Warner for U.S. Senate. Here’s a poll from PPP taken in January 2013, before Terry McAuliffe and his allies unleashed a gazillion dollars (at least it seemed like a gazillion) in ads ripping Cuccinelli to shreds, leaving him with a NEGATIVE 13 (39%-52%) favorability rating. In stark contrast, a July 2013 PPP poll had Warner with a +20 (51%-31%) net approval rating. So yeah, I hope Virginia Republicans run Ken Cuccinelli against Mark Warner next year. Pretty please with a cherry on top? 🙂

P.S. And no, I don’t believe that another year of Cuckoo ranting about the evil “Obamacare” will do the trick for him. But sure, go ahead and give it a shot! 🙂

    As a former Arlingtonian who still keeps up with Virginia politics, are they really urging this?  I agree that it would be a no-brainer win for Sen. Warner, and maintaining control of the Senate is obviously critical.  But on a broader, perhaps more philosophical level — and while I remain all for Democrats winning as many races as they can — at some point the GOP’s failure to engage on the real issues begins to hurt the country.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m fine with this one.  But I do believe we need a multi-party system and if the Republicans don’t come to their senses, we risk the GOP becoming irrelevant in normal political activity.
