Senate races kicking into high gear

All 40 senators in Virginia are up for election this year

During the primary season there will be several key matchups

With Potts retirement Jill Holtzman Vogel and Mark Tate are running in the Republican primary  

In Richmond there are some efforts to primary a democrat sitting senator

Several Republican senators may also have primary challengers. Elephant Ears recently did a good series

For the general election one of the most watched races especially in NoVa land will be between Jeannemarie Devolites Davis and Chap Petersen.  Jeannemarie already has a sizeable warchest and Chap is fundraising hard to catch up.  As an example, today Chap is having a $250 a head fundraiser before the Democrat Jefferson Jackson dinner.

Throw in the presidential jockeying to prepare for 2008 and 2007 promises to be a very interesting year.
