Is Cuccinelli's next job on Virginia's bench?

Vir­gin­ia Sen­ate Re­pub­lic­ans on Tues­day nom­in­ated Sen­ate Con­ser­vat­ives Fund Pres­id­ent Ken Cuc­cinelli to fill a va­cancy on its Su­preme Court, The Wash­ing­ton Post re­ports. The Re­pub­lic­an-con­trolled state Sen­ate will likely take up con­sid­er­a­tion Wed­nes­day. Cuc­cinelli would re­place a tem­por­ary ap­point­ment by Gov. Terry McAul­iffe, who nar­rowly beat then-At­tor­ney Gen­er­al Cuc­cinelli in the 2013 gov­ernor race.

Baker moves toward congressional bid in Florida

Flor­ida’s new con­gres­sion­al map gives Demo­crats an edge in the open-seat race, but Re­pub­lic­ans view Baker as their strongest can­did­ate. On the Demo­crat­ic side, former De­fense De­part­ment of­fi­cial Eric Lynn is also run­ning, while re­tired Mar­ine Corps Re­serve Gen. Mark Birch­er and law­yer Paul De­Cailly are seek­ing the GOP nod.
