If George Allen makes a flub reminiscent of his infamous 2006 "macaca" utterance, his opponents are determined to catch it.
Kaine faces questions about decision on killer; Juvenile arrests up in D.C.; D.C. Council resumes budget debate; Driver in fatal Olney crash due in court; Former Alexandria police chief mulls council run; Audit: Va. state employee used computer for role-playing game; Md. lawmaker faces tea party pressure on debt-ceiling issue
A new poll shows Tim Kaine and George Allen in a dead heat for Sen. Jim Webb's U.S. Senate seat in Virginia — but both are viewed less favorably than they were three months ago.
Democratic National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine told a law school class he's likely to run for a Senate seat next year, a party spokesman said Monday.
Mr. Kaine, a Democrat, has said increased tax revenues — primarily through the elimination of loopholes and allowing Bush-era tax cuts on high earners to expire — should be a part of any grand bargain.
Mr. Allen has been campaigning since January, while Mr. Kaine announced his bid last month, after President Obama and other Democrats urged him to run.
