SE on 2013 Governor races!…….

From SE…………

Here’s an early take on the 2013 Gubernatorial races:

New Jersey: Incumbent GOP Governor Chris Christie is running for re-election. Potential candidates for the Democrats are Newark Mayor Corey Booker, Congressmen Rob Andrews, John Adler, Frank Pallone, Steve Rothman, Rush Holt, and Albio Sires, State Assembly Speaker Sheila Y. Oliver, State Assembly Majority Leader Joseph Cryan, State Assembly Speaker Pro-Tempore Jerry Green, State Senate President Steve Sweeney, and State Assembly Majority Conference Leader Joan M. Quigley. At this stage of the game, this is a TOSSUP.

Virginia: Incumbent GOP Governor Bob McDonnell is term-limited. Potential candidates for the Republicans are Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling, Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, former Governor and former US Senator George Allen, former Governor Jim Gilmore, former Counselor to President Bush Ed Gillespie, and Congressmen Rob Wittman, Randy Forbes, Bob Goodlatte, and Eric Cantor. Potential candidates for the Democrats are State Treasurer Braxton Powell, Senators Jim Webb and Mark Warner, Congressmen Glenn Nye, Bobby Scott, Tom Perriello, Jim Moran, Rick Boucher, and Gerry Connolly, State Delegate Brian Moran, former DNC Chairman Terry McCauliffe, and former US Senator Chuck Robb. Considering the fields of candidates, I rate this a TOSSUP.

  1. James B, Kaine is rumored to be seeking the governorship again and Warner is NOT running for governor ever again since he’s gonna be in the Senate FOR LIFE.

    Webb will get re-elected in 2012, likely two-termer at best until 2018.

  3. James B, then-Virginia Governor Jim Gilmore (R) tried unsuccessfully to offer extending the governor’s term from 4 years to 6 years when the General Assembly turned it down.

    Don’t be shocked if McDonnell pulls a Bloomberg and has the entire term limit law abolished forever by running indefinitely (he has a 65 percent approval rating, so he could do it).
