LeBlanc’s going down.
I’ve been standing outside of P&E (oddly held in House Room 2, in the Patrick Henry Building, a room so tiny that the Democratic Caucus is forced to meet there) and trying to catch a few fragments of what’s being discussed on the matter of Governor Kaine’s appointments. From what I understand, Danny LeBlanc is not going to be appointed as Governor Kaine’s Secretary of the Commonwealth.
If so, I welcome that overreach on the part of House Republicans. They’re handing Governor Kaine — and the media — a bat, which will be surely used to pummel them into submission and, inevitably, more losses in next year’s elections.
12:10pm Update: It’s official. The AP just moved an article by Larry O’Dell confirming it.
