George Allen has won the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate, getting about two thirds of the vote in yesterday’s primary. Jamie Radtke ran a distant second, getting 23% of the vote. This sets up a battle of the former governors: George Allen versus Tim Kaine in a November race that will get lots of national attention.
Congressman Bob Goodlatte of Roanoke easily won nomination for a 12th term. He got two-thirds of the vote, with one third going to political newcomer Karen Kwiatkowski. Goodlatte faces Democratic newcomer Andy Schmookler in the fall.
