Although there has been other speculation kicking around about the possibility that Chap Petersen ’90 might run for Governor of Virginia, today, in an interview with a Virginia blogger, I saw the first indication from Chap himself that he is interested in running:

Virginia Gentleman: On the Democrat side it seems like the race for the gubernatorial election in 2013 is wide open. Do you have interest in running?

Chap Petersen: Yes, eventually. As for 2013, I’m focused on 2011 right now. I’m taking nothing for granted. The 34th is historically a swing district.

I hope he runs, as I think he would make an excellent governor.
