The GOP's Virginia Problem

"In the eyes of party strategists, Virginia's off-year elections represent a first opportunity to bounce back from the losses of 2012 - a chance to reset the political debate in a critical swing state, send off popular Gov. Bob McDonnell on a high note and deliver a national message about the direction of the Republican Party," Politico reports.

"If only the Republican state legislature, local conservative leadership and de facto gubernatorial nominee could stick to the talking points. Instead, national Republicans fear the true believers in Richmond could shout down their fledgling message of prudence and moderation in a state that's easy prey for much of the political media."
