|Description||The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee doesn't endorse in primaries, and you won't ever hear Sen. Chuck Schumer (D) say bad things about Harris Miller (D). |
The endorsement of James Webb (D) today by Sens. Harry Reid and Dick Durbin seems to be tacit recognition that nat'l Dems want Webb as their nominee.
National Dems want Miller out of the race, and soon.
Worth noting, however, is that while Webb accrues support from DC and nat'l Dems, Miller, a longtime Dem activist, is racking up endorsements from VA state legislators. Miller has the support of 17 Delegates and state Senators, including many from the ranks of the Black Caucus and Northern VA delegation, while Webb has just one legislative endorsement.
Will this be a primary driven by nat'l dynamics and pragmatism or local issues and personal loyalty?
Webb release after the jump.
