Former Virginia Sen. George Allen lost his seat this year to opponent Jim Webb and decided not to run for governor in 2009. The personable politician is known for his use of football metaphors to describe political maneuvers. Could he score a 2012 touchdown?
Virginia, get ready for an Allen-Webb rematch in 2012.
Allen, the former U.S. senator and Virginia governor, plans to tell supporters within a week that he is mounting a campaign to retake the Senate seat he lost to Democrat Jim Webb in 2006, according to Politico.
There was no mention of a possible run on Allen's website Monday. But he did post his picks for this past weekend's NFL playoff games. For Allen's sake, we hope his political future fares better than his prognosticating skills. The son of the former Redskins coach went 1-3 in the weekend games, correctly picking only the Green Bay-Atlanta game.
