Warner Will Not Run for President

Former Virginia Governor Mark Warner, who recently campaigned for Democrats in the Tampa Bay area, announced that he will not be running for President, as was expected. He was considered a strong contender, but his name recognition in key, early primary states failed to match the buzz he generated among donors and political insiders.

My sources who worked with Warner on his gubernatorial campaign and in his administration say that he is leaning towards a Senate run in 2008.

That's too bad. He would have been a strong candidate with a history of winning red states - and even helping to turn them blue! He's also to the left of the hawkish frontrunner - Hilary Clinton.

Gov. Easley, while expected to easily (no pun intended) win re-election this year, has not laid the necessary groundwork for a presidential bid. However, Easley, along with Gov. Bredesden of Tennessee (and Warner) will be on every Democrat's shortlist for VP.
