What a Rocking Few Minutes…Floyd Landis out, Leslie Byrne In

My phone rings off the hook from the breadth of my widespread universe…within a very few minutes I discover that:

a) Floyd Landis appeal denied 2-1 by his arbitration panel. Landis must forfeit his Tour de France title and is subject to a two-year ban, retroactive to Jan. 30, 2007.
b) RK announces that Leslie Byrne has formed an exploratory committee for a possible 11th Congressional District race in 2008.

Too bad on Floyd…I had hoped that somehow he would be cleared. Great move by Leslie Byrne both for herself and Mark Warner. Her announcement will put pressure on Gerry Connolly to announce shortly after the Supervisor elections whether he will run or not, and also on Tom Davis as to what he is running for in 2008.
