Former Virginia Governor Tim Kaine Enters Senate Race

This will be an interesting race to watch since it will most likely set up a race between two of the three most popular former Governor’s in recent Virginia political history (the other one, Mark Warner, is already in the Senate, of course). The interplay between a Kaine-Allen race and the Presidential race will also be significant given the fact that Barack Obama won Virginia last time around.
