Sabato puts Jim Webb on vulnerable list
UVA-based pundit Larry Sabato has placed Virginia's senior U.S. Senator, Jim Webb, on his list of seven vulnerable members of the Senate, along with Joe Lieberman, Claire McCaskill, and others.
Calling the race a toss-up between the two parties, Sabato's so-called "Crystal Ball" notes that Webb could face a challenge from the man he dethroned, George Allen, as well as from such figures as ever-controversial Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli and conservative state lawmaker Bob Marshall.
The election is not until November 2012, and no candidates have officially announced.
"It's ridiculously early, of course," Sabato notes.
