  •  at this point, Dem ticket seems 2/3 set (6+ / 0-)

    Terry McAuliffe is only one seriously running for Governor, and at this point it looks like State. Sen. Mark Herring is the only serious candidate for AG.  Both are NoVa based.

    There is a contest at this point for LG, with no clear favorite at this point, although given that the selection will be by primary and the largest share of votes is in NoVa (followed by Richmond and Tidewater) Aneesh Chopra might have an edge, although State Senator Ralph Northam cannot be discounted.

    Given that Cory Booker is not going to challenge Christie in NJ, expect millions in out of state money for these races.  

    Unfortunately, so far McAuliffe has NOT positively defined himself, and is in danger of getting painted negatively.

    On the other hand, Cuccinelli is so extreme that as of now Lt. Gov Bolling will not endorse him, and the only reason McDonnell probably will is because he does not want to piss off the extreme right because he wants to run for President in 2016.

    We'll see how it plays out.
