Ken Cuccinelli could snag the nomination for any statewide office in Virginia just for the asking, according to Chris Cillizza's politics blog in The Washington Post
. The state attorney general’s high-profile victory over Obamacare makes him a shoo-in for the GOP nomination for governor or senator.
Former Virginia Rep. Tom Davis said, “He is a hero on Fox (News Channel) and with Virginia Republicans,” Cillizza writes in The Fix column.
Although Cuccinelli has not made any public announcements about seeking higher office, a run for the Senate in 2012 against Sen. Jim Webb, D-Va., or for governor in 2013, are the obvious choices, Cillizza writes.
However, former Sen. George Allen “is all-but-in the race,” and a poll shows Cuccinelli trailing Webb in a potential matchup by 11 points. A race for the governor’s office is the more likely path with Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell barred from seeking another term, according to Cillizza.
