Where Mont. candidates go, trackers lurk

U.S. Senate candidate Amanda Curtis had just announced her plan for higher education reforms and was about to head to a lunch meeting with veterans when she ducked down a hall toward the women's restroom at Montana State University in Billings. A strange political dance unfolded in the Democrat's wake: As a "tracker" - a political operative from the opposing party armed with a video camera __ sought to record Curtis' every move, the candidate's father and a campaign aide scrambled to block the tracker's view with campaign signs.

McDonnell Verdict Adds to Republicans' Virginia Woes

The conviction of former Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell and his wife on public corruption charges today adds a definitive point to the implosion of the Republican Party in a state that just two years ago was considered a battleground in the presidential race. The McDonnells' association with wealthy businessman Jonnie Williams Sr., who a jury found gave more than $170,000 in gifts to the couple in exchange for special government treatment, removes from the political scene the state's highest profile Republican.

Come on, come on down, sweet Virginia

September is a favorite month. With cooling weather and the beginnings of fall colors, memories wander back to college days, thoughts of returning to school and reuniting with friends after three months on a summer job, a chance to do what we did best in the 1970s - party down! Fall weekends meant keg parties in dorm basements.
