    Cuccinelli v. Warner – Oh yeah

    Cuccinelli v. Warner – Oh yeah

    This would be good, via WaPo:

    Much of the speculation about Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli’s political future has focused on whether the Republican who has made a name for himself suing the federal government would run for re-election, or for governor in 2013

    But in an interview with The Washington Post, Cuccinelli said he may run for U.S. Senate in 2014 — possibly setting him up to take on one of Virginia’s most popular politicians, Democrat Mark R. Warner.

    And Cuccinelli didn’t hold back on his criticism of the former governor, who many assume has grown a bit restless with the great deliberative body that is the U.S. Senate.

    “I understand from people he and I both talk to that he’s pretty frustrated with it,’’ Cuccinelli said. “[But] I don’t see him doing anything to change that system. He hasn’t even tried.”

    Cuccinelli said Warner should challenge his caucus, including Sens. Harry Reid (Nev.), Dick Durbin (Ill.) and Chuck Schumer (N.Y.) , instead of voting alongside them.

    This would be more than good, it would force Democrats to spend tons of money and effort defending a seat which is not normally considered a threat to flip.

    Warner has been a guest on Larry Kudlow’s show a few times. He always sounds like a reasonable moderate. Then I look at his voting record and see that his ACU score was 24 in 2009 and a whopping 8 in 2010. So he talks like a moderate but generally votes with the liberals/socialists.

    BTW, Stephen Hayes has an article in The Weekly Standard suggesting Paul Ryan is seriously considering getting in the presidential race. That ought to fire up the base.
