Annotations & Elucidations  The Non-Endorsement Edition

The news is just as Doug Wilder likes it — about him. It's practically sucked out the news cycle any mention of the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce endorsement of Bob McDonnell and the Virginia Fraternal of Police endorsement of the entire GOP ticket. The latter merited a picture and a sentence in today's Richmond Times-Dispatch, buried in an article all about Our Doug's announcement. Even the New York Times wrote about it! Elsewhere, Jody Wagner continues to miscalculate and delegate races are heating up. Oh, and surprise! The VEA is attacking Bob McDonnell.
