Allen to Announce Bid for Former Senate Seat

In what is no suprise to most who follow politics in the Old Dominion, Roll Call Politics reports this morning that former U.S. Senator George Allen will announce in an email to supporters that he is running for his old seat now held by Democrat James Webb. 
His website,, teased supporters Sunday with the vague banner message, “Stay tuned.” Webb defeated Allen in one of the biggest upsets of 2006, but the incumbent has not declared whether he will run for re-election. Webb told the Washington Post last month that he expects to make a decision by the end of March.
Webb has yet to announce whether he will run for re-election but there is some speculation that he may not run.

Tea Party leader and former Allen staffer Jamie Radtke has already announced that she is running.
