Creigh Deeds Swamping McAuliffe, Moran in Dem Primary
Democrats will finally select their gubernatorial nominee tomorrow and until recently, the smart money was on former Clinton bag-man Terry McAuliffe to win. So this has to count as stunning news: Deeds is now at 40%, followed by Terry McAuliffe at 26% and Brian Moran at 24%. In the last week Deeds has gained 13 points while McAuliffe and Moran have each advanced by just | Read More »
Is Pelosi holding off on the PMA probe because of Jim Moran?
Trying to ensure that Brian Moran’s bid for Virginia Governor isn’t overshadowed by his brother going to jail is as good an explanation as any for the Democrats’ unwillingness to throw a few of their own to the wolves. Although Chris Stirewalt’s theory (H/T: Instapundit): Americans generally have low ethical expectations for their politicians. A little double-talking or some womanizing or an oversized ego have | Read More »
With a day to go in the Virginia Democratic Gubernatorial Primary…
…the carpetbagger from New York and the brother of the anti-Semite are falling behind the guy who keeps hitting people with his car. PPP’s poll is especially good news for the Guy With The Car’s campaign, but it’ll probably still be a nail-biter for the Other side tomorrow.

James P. Moran Jr. (D-Va.), a member of the powerful House Appropriations defense subcommittee, have donated thousands of dollars to Moran’s younger brother Brian, a candidate for governor | Read More »
I am not a shill for AIPAC.
Thanks to R.S. McCain, I’ve been dragged into this complete non-scandal about him and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe, so I might as well establish this now: I do not work for the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. I am not directly compensated by AIPAC in any way. AIPAC has not provided me with any consideration in exchange for my highlighting the Israel-bashing escapades of | Read More »
Moran, McAuliffe entering full contested-primary mode in VA.
The conflict between two major Democratic candidates (mentioned in yesterday’s RedHot) for the nomination for Governor continues to escalate. For the benefit of those catching the story late, the two individuals are as follows: Brian Moran: former Virginia state legislator. Brother of notorious anti-AIPAC conspiracy theorist Rep. Jim Moran (D, VA-08). Pros: Is not Terry McAuliffe. Cons: Is probably best known for being brother of | Read More »
