An Opponent for Senator Allen

We were starting to wonder if there were any Democrats out there willing to run for Senate in Virginia in 2006. One finally declared his candidacy. WTOP reports:

FAIRFAX, Va. -- The year is only three days old, but already the political season is heating up in Virginia. WTOP Radio has learned Harris Miller will challenge Republican incumbent George Allen in November...

The 54-year-old McLean resident is currently the President of the Information Technology Association of America. He wants to see more done by the Federal government...

Republican George Allen, who has been mentioned as a possible candidate for President, is seeking re-election for a second term.

Democrat Jim Webb has also been mentioned for a Senate run, but the party leadership, including Gov. Warner, wants Miller on the ticket.

Webb posed an interesting problem reminiscent of Wesley Clark's brief run for the presidency (but without that whole trying to start World War III issue) - I couldn't find any evidence that he is actually a Democrat.

As for Miller, I'll be especially glad to oppose another big government Democrat.
