George Allen Planning to “Pour Money” Into Corey Stewart Primary Opponent?


    Oh, pleasepleasepleasepleaseplease let this story be true!

    [George] Allen is widely expected to make another run for his former seat two years from now, but he might face some GOP opposition in the primary.  

    [Corey] Stewart, who is the Chairman of the Prince William County Board of Supervisors, is up for reelection in 2011, a race he said those close to Allen have already warned him about.  

    They’ve already started making the threats,” said Stewart, who told The Hill that “someone senior in the Allen camp” relayed a message to his office that they intend to solicit interests to pour money into the campaign of Stewart’s challenger next year.  

    “I never back down to a threat,” said Stewart. “All that does is make me dig my heels in more.”

    A senior advisor close to the former senator said simply, “It’s not true.”

    Let’s hope it actually is true. A fight like this would be both great theater (rev up the popcorn maker!) and would hopefully damage both “Felix Macacawitz” and Mr. “Rule of Law” politically. That seems like a 100% win-win situation to me!
