Not Harry F. Byrd

I largely agreed with your analysis with the caveat that while I thought Joe was rather beloved, I heard A LOT of rather unpleasant sentiments expressed about him during the primary. In which case it would depend on who showed up.

Of course it now seems to have turned into a giant cluster. And I'm guessing what's left of what good will I thought he had has vaporized. Maybe Speaker Howell can talk him off the ledge? Supposedly they were close.

What a mess.

David C.F. Ray

My guess is Joe May, should he actually get elected (premised, of course, on Mark Obenshain LOSING the recount), will seek to caucus with the Senate Republicans. I have NO doubt that Walter Stosch and crowd would take him with open arms.

He would run for re-election in 2015 as a Republican, invoke his legal special prerogative to demand a primary, and, if we're lucky, Del. Dave LaRock or a similarly conservative Republican knocks him out in THAT primary, and Joe May, under Virginia's sore loser law, would be finished once and for all.

One can hope, anyway.
