THE HILL: Gillespie Puts Virginia In Play For The GOP.

In deeply-divided Virginia, there’s rare bipartisan agreement — former Republican National Committee Chairman Ed Gillespie is the strongest candidate the GOP could field against Sen. Mark Warner (D).

Even Democrats admit Republicans accomplished a coup by landing Gillespie, a former top advisor to President George W. Bush and powerhouse lobbyist. But both parties concur the popular Warner will be hard to oust.

Gillespie’s betting that ObamaCare — and Obama in general — will be a drag on Mark Warner’s candidacy. It’s a reasonable bet.
