Richmond Times Dispatch

  1. Virginia voters will decide on Tuesday which Republican candidate will run against Democrat Tim Kaine.

    Former governor and senator George Allen, who held the seat before losing it to retiring Sen. Jim Webb (D) in 2006, is the clear frontrunner. The other choices are: 

    • Chesapeake minister E.W. Jackson
    • Tea party activist Jamie Radtke
    • Del. Robert G. Marshall

    Although Virginia’s Voter ID law will not take effect until July 1, Tuesday’s voter turnout is expected to be low. Chris Piper, manager of election services for the State Board of Elections, told the Richmond Times Dispatch that the biggest issue they expect in Tuesday’s election is a mini-protest on those new laws.
