I still don't understand how he lost so bad to Jerry Kilgore in 2001, but Tim Kaine won? And I'm not even trying to be smart ass.

Besides getting outspent, there was a really weird vibe around Donald in 01 after he beat two white Democratic legislators in the primary. The things other Democrats were saying about him were very close to being racist. For example, I probably heard 100 people say they were voting for him or against him depending on whether they liked Doug Wilder as Governor. Which had nothing to do with Donald of course except for the fact he was the first African American running statewide since Wilder.
I'd love to see him come back again statewide- a lot of the crap he had to put up with in 2001 wouldn't fly anymore with the internet engaged and watching.

Thanks for highlighting this. Sen. McEachin definitely deserves it. He has been a great champion for conservation, carrying a great energy efficiency bill this year and speaking out forcefully about how it will help his constituents.

I've been a big fan of the man since '01--congrats and thanks, Donald!

Sounds like a good reason to vote against him...

hey, that's the VIRGINIA League of Conservation Voters not the national League of Conservation Voters. Important distinction.

Had been thinking about Lindsey's new vibram fivefingers ever since she posted about them on this blog. When she first sent me a photo of these bizarre looking vibram five,I just laughed at their vibram fivefingers ridiculousness, thinking 'no way I'll ever put those things on my five finger feet! But alas, once I saw them and read about them, I just couldn't stop thinking about them! I had to try them for myself. Last week I went to Blue five fingers Ridge Mountain Sports in Charlottesville,
