Virginia News Headlines: Wednesday Morning

by: lowkell

Wed Nov 28, 2012 at 06:42:35 AM EST

Here are a few Virginia (and national) news headlines, political and otherwise, for Wednesday, November 28.

*Obama launches full-fledged PR effort on 'cliff'
*Bill Bolling to drop out of Va. governor race ("Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling plans to drop out of the 2013 race for Virginia governor, according to multiple media reports, likely clearing the way for Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II to secure the Republican nomination")
*Bolling to exit Va. gov race (What I don't understand is why he ever thought he could beat Cuccinelli at a convention, where the most ultra-conservative people tend to vote?)
*Chris Graham: Impact of Bill Bolling's departure from the 2013 race
*Cuccinelli seems to agree voter fraud helped Obama (This lunatic now seems highly likely to be the Republican nominee for Virginia governor in 2013. Wow.)
*Obenshain announces bid for attorney general
*Analysis: Sen. Warner Proposes Decoupling Social Security From Deficit Reduction
*Va. Gov. McDonnell willing to consider early voting
*Va. GOP wants Bob McDonnell to take lead on transportation
*McDonnell coy on his future - but not on Notre Dame
*Schapiro: Private roads, public headaches
*Va. GOP leaders temper tone on abortion
*Gas Tax or Higher Tolls? Both Could Become Transportation Funding Options in Virginia
*Virginia coal survives Obama re-election, somehow (So much for the brain-dead "war on coal" meme?)
*AG race: Obenshain in, Frey out
*Editorial: Better ways to spend $27 million ("Candidates and PACs spent that amount driving the region crazy with television ads.")
*Byler, Salyer among those seeking Va. Beach state House seat
*Fairfax can't afford to plug hole in school budget
*Va. Beach mayor sketches out plan for arena and pro team
