By Jonathan LucciFrederick County Report
 Publisher’s note: In the 2008 and 2012 Presidential elections, Virgin-ia’s results more closely matched the nation’s than any other state.With New Jersey Gov. Chris Chris-tie enjoying record approval ratingsand expected to coast to re-electionin the country’s only other 2013 gubernatorial contest, the nationwill look to Virginia as a harbin- ger o whether President Obama’sre-election was a result o a bet-ter campaign or a sign o the na-tion becoming more accepting o the Democratic agenda. Tis year,our gubernatorial election will benational news or a bigger reasonthan the act that it is easy or thenational media to cover since it isright next door to D.C.
It seems as i the renzy o the2012 election has yet to die down,and the political environment is al-ready ully charged here in Virginiaor next year’s gubernatorial battle,shaping up to be the marquee po-litical event in the entire coun-try in an otherwise dull o year.While both sides in Washingtonare grappling and positioning overthe looming budget crisis, andconcerned citizens here in Virginiarightly worry about the scal cli and its consequences, events arealready moving at a ast pace orour statewide elections next all.Considering how closely Virginiamirrored the national popular vote and our now likely place as aperennial battleground state, next years gubernatorial election wasbound to be exciting and closely watched. But that was beore itbecame clear just who the twonominees were likely to be. Now that we know their identities, it isclear that the 2013 matchup willbe bitter, bruising, and viewed as amicrocosm or the nation movinginto the 2014 midterms.On the Republican side, Lieu-tenant Governor Bolling decidedagainst waging a ght or the nom-ination ater the Republican Party decided to switch rom a primary election to a party convention. Itis widely believed that a party con- vention tilts dramatically towardthe most conservative elements inthe party, who are largely support-ers o Attorney General Ken Cuc-cinelli. Seeing no plausible path tothe nomination, Bolling droppedout o the race this week andmade it clear he was disappointedin the change and make it evenclearer that he doubts Cuccinelli’selectability in November. For themoment, the Republican party israllying around the controversialAttorney General and he appearsto be the presumptive nominee.On the Democratic side, it hasbeen no secret that ormer Demo-cratic National Committee Chair-man erry McAulie was plan-ning on making another run atthe nomination that was denied tohim in 2009. Te real question orthe Democrats was, What WouldMarker Warner Do? SenatorWarner, already a ormer populargovernor, could likely have gainedboth the nomination and the gen-eral election win had he decidedto run. However, ater apparently giving it serious consideration andprompting some speculation, War-ner decided against it and seemsready to run or reelection to theSenate in 2014. Either the Senateor the Governor’s Mansion couldserve as a tting platorm or apossible 2016 Presidential run orWarner.With the matchup betweenMcAulie and Cuccinelli, the bas-es o both parties get what they want and political junkies get whatthey love, a knock-down drag-outbrawl between two seasoned tal-ents. However, Virginia’s growthin political importance has comeabout largely because o neitherpolitical base but the presence o a large moderate swath o votersopen to both parties and scaredby extremes. While the race willcertainly be entertaining, it is hardto believe either candidate will en-dear themselves to the swing vot-ers in Northern Virginia and Rich-mond suburbs that will decide theelection. McAulie’s identicationwith the national Democratic Party over so many years won’t necessar-ily play in his avor in a state only recently purple. Certainly, Mr.Cuccinelli’s outspokenly conserva-tive positions on social issues willcause him deep and possibly atalproblems in Fairax and LoudonCounties.With a year to go, and both mencapable o raising massive amountso money, one thing is certain: therespite Northern Virginia votersthought they were going to getrom negative attack ads won’t lastthat much longer. Enjoy it while you can.
