Chairman of Democratic National Committee Resigns

Tim Kaine getting out of the DNC early to run for a safer contest as  Virginia Governor.  Probably not a bad gig as the 2012 elections appear to be a poor proposition for the House and Senate Democrats.  No one would like to have a dismal failure on their Resume.

Former Virginia Governor Tim Kaine resigned on Tuesday as chairman of the Democratic National Committee to run for a U.S. Senate seat from his state in 2012 as his party strives to retain control of the chamber.

Kaine’s announcement sets up a possible marquee matchup with Republican former Virginia governor and senator George Allen, who is seeking his party’s nomination for the Senate seat being vacated by retiring one-term Democrat Jim Webb.

The Virginia contest is expected to be one of the highest-profile Senate races in the nation next year.

With President Barack Obama running for re-election in 2012, his fellow Democrats face a tough battle to hold their slender majority in the Senate.
