Ping wcg: James Webb to run for Senate

According to the Richmond Times-Dispatch, former Navy Secretary James Webb is planning to run for the Virginia Senate seat currently held by George Allen.

Webb was SecNav under Reagan; he's planning to run as a Democrat. As wcg mentioned back on Monday, Webb isn't terribly impressed with how the current Republican politicos are treating those veterans who dare disagree with them. Guess he's about to put his money where his mouth is.
