Attorney General race

Why the Adams–Herring Attorney General Race in Virginia Matters

Ramesh Ponnuru, National Review

Adams’s fortunes are linked to those of Ed Gillespie, the Republican running for governor in Virginia. But in three of the last four Virginia elections, Republicans have done better in the race for attorney general than in the contest for governor. Adams might be able to win even if Gillespie does not, so long as the top of his ticket stays competitive. Gillespie is competitive, so Adams has a shot, and conservatives have a stake.
