Terry Kilgore for Congress?
Ben Tribbett hears that the NRCC is polling Terry Kilgore, twin brother of former Virginia Attorney General and failed 2005 gubernatorial candidate Jerry Kilgore against Rep. Rick Boucher (D-Va.), and finding Kilgore up by 6 points.
Kilgore would be a great recruit. His brother won the 9th District by 12 points, his best showing in the entire state, during a lackluster run for governor in a bad Republican year. In 2008, John McCain carried the district over Barack Obama by 19 points. It’s the kind of seat that the GOP stopped targeting while playing defense in 2006 and 2008, but Boucher’s support for cap-and-trade legislation has it looking again.
