Well, now I almost feel bad for suggesting yesterday that former Congresswoman Leslie Byrne of Virginia had a shot at regaining her old seat largely on the strength of a long career as a political loser. Instead, she lost again.
Gerald Connolly, who was just reelected to the chairmanship of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors last November, won yesterday's Democratic primary against Byrne amidst abysmal turnout. The suburban 11th District, which Republican Tom Davis has held since beating Byrne back in 1994, is expected to be one of the Democrats' best pickup opportunities this fall.
Despite the awful traffic in his county, Connolly will enjoy one of the easiest commutes in Congress. No connecting flights for him.
