Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) “is the subject of an ongoing investigation by the FBI and prosecutors from the Justice Department’s public integrity unit,” CNN reports.
Ken Cuccinelli (R) said “that he will not run again for governor, scrambling the contest and opening the door for a far-right conservative to vie for the Republican nomination in 2017,” the Washington Post reports.
“Ed Gillespie, who nearly pulled off an upset in Virginia’s Senate race, conceded the battle Friday to Democratic incumbent Mark Warner. The former Republican National Committee head also told Politico this week that he isn’t planning to run for governor, despite predictions he would do so if he failed to reach the Senate.”
