Local Attorneys Vie for Virginia Attorney General

So far Roanoke has John Brownlee who stepped down as a US Attorney to vie for the Republican nomination for Virginia’s Attorney General in 2009. For the Democratic ticket we have John Fishwick who gained notoriety representing Scott Hoover against the Virginia Lottery claiming the Lottery allowed the sale of scratch tickets where all top prizes had already been claimed. Fishwick is also representing the Roanoke City Market vendors in a negligence lawsuit against the City. Brownlee has two other Northern Virginia Republican opponents (Ken Cuccinelli and Dave Foster) to contend with before he gets the nod to run on the Republican ticket. Brownlee would then run on a ticket with the presumptive Republican Gubernatorial nominee Bob McDonnell, Virginia’s current Attorney General and Bill Bolling for Lt. Governor. Fishwick is the only Democrat so far to vie for Attorney General on the Democratic ticket. For governor on the Democratic ticket you have Senator Craigh Deeds who represents Charlottesville, Delegate Brian Moran of Fairfax, and former Democratic Chair and Hillary Clinton Campaign Manager, Terry Mcauliffe.
