McAuliffe Gears Up For Virginia Gubernatorial Run

November 8, 2012
That would be an awful lot to accomplish in one year in the notoriously slow-moving Senate. As for McAuliffe, he last ran in 2009, when he came in second place in a three-way primary won by Democratic state Sen. Creigh Deeds. Since then, he has toured the commonwealth relentlessly, pushing a green jobs agenda and Democratic candidates at the federal, state and local level. He also hosted a $3 million fundraiser for President Obama that featured his good friend Bill Clinton. McAuliffe would be more likely to embrace Obama than offer only a mild backing like Deeds did in 2009 when Obama's popularity began to sink. Virginians can expect both Clinton and Obama to heavily back their party's former chairman next year like they did with another former party chairman this year: Kaine. The state Attorney General Ken Cucinelli is set to take on on Lieutenant Gov. Bill Bolling at the Republican nominating convention next year. Democrats are selecting their statewide nominees via a statewide primary. However, because there are no write-in options on the ballot in primary elections, McAuliffe could secure the nomination simply by being the only Democrat to file the pre-requisite 10,000 petition signatures -- which includes at least 400 coming from each of the commonwealth's 11 congressional districts -- with the State Board of Elections by the filing deadline.
