The view from the Great Lakes state
Someone writing in The Michigan Review says: "In the Old Dominion state, it looks that Democrat Lt. Governor Tim Kaine will be denied his bid for a promotion. Republican State Attorney General Jerry Kilgore has been running ahead of Kaine in nearly every poll since the primaries last spring. While it is true that the most recent Rasmussen Reports poll shows him in a statistical tie of 43% versus 40%, this is more likely to be statistical noise than a swell in support for Kaine. Virginia has been drifting steadily from the leaning- to safe-Republican column in recent years, and unless Gov. Warner provides Kaine with a crucial boost, the Governor's mansion will return to Republican hands on November 8th."
