A week from today, New Jersey and Virginia - two nearby states that have a lot in common with Maryland, notably well-educated and racially diverse Eastern Seaboard populations with high household incomes - conduct the only two governor's races in this odd, and odd-numbered, election year. Will the results have any meaning for politics in the rest of the country? Maybe, but not likely. Despite the temptation to view these elections as bellwethers for the 2010 congressional races or even the 2012 presidential contest, they will be anything but. In 2001, only two months after the Sept.

RICHMOND, Va. - Mark Warner is a Harvard-educated lawyer from the Midwest who moved to Virginia's Washington suburbs and made a fortune in the cell phone industry. And now, doggone it, he's running for governor as a good ol' boy. A political adviser by the name of Mudcat is helping Warner get in touch with his inner Bubba. David "Mudcat" Saunders, a developer, self-described deal-doer and unpaid political dabbler who knows how to find votes in Virginia's hills and farms, has taken the Alexandria suburbanite turkey hunting.

Republican Sen. John W. Warner of Virginia, one of the most influential voices on military matters in Congress, announced yesterday that he would not run for re-election, paving the way for a battle between Democrats and Republicans to claim his seat. Warner is a pivotal figure in the debate over what to do about the war in Iraq and is likely to be squarely in the middle of efforts to craft legislation this fall to dictate the return of U.S. troops. He has become increasingly critical of the war, and upon his return from Iraq recently, he angered the White House when he said some troops should leave by year's end. Warner, 80, is a former secretary of the Navy, former chairman of the Armed Services Committee and a World War II veteran.

WASHINGTON - When Howard Dean was chosen to head their party, Democrats looked forward to the benefits of his bristling energy and zest for political combat. But at a private meeting on Capitol Hill yesterday, a number of worried Senate Democrats warned Dean that he had been going overboard and needed to choose his words more carefully. The former Vermont governor and unsuccessful presidential candidate sparked controversy in recent days by referring to the GOP as "pretty much a white, Christian party," and declaring that a lot of Republicans have "never made an honest living in their lives."

WASHINGTON - A day after Washington was awarded a Major League Baseball team, hundreds of fans flooded city phone lines seeking tickets, and Mayor Anthony Williams began pitching his $435 million stadium financing plan by likening the proposed ballpark to ones in San Francisco and Pittsburgh that helped revive waterfront neighborhoods. Williams met yesterday with labor leaders and neighborhood groups on the plan, under a hurried schedule in which the D.C. Council was expected to get the financing bill today, hold public hearings next month and render its verdict in December.

FENWICK ISLAND, Del. -- Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace asked Delaware's senior senator last week, "What kind of chance would a Northeastern liberal like Joe Biden stand in the South if you were running in Democratic primaries against Southerners like Mark Warner [of Virginia] and John Edwards [North Carolina]?" Sen. Joseph R. Biden Jr. answered, "Better than anybody. You don't know my state. My state was a slave state." I thought of making fun of him - along the lines of quoting members of a "Sussex County United Daughters of Slaveholders for Biden 2008."
