Jim Webb, former Senator from Virginia and one-time Democratic presidential candidate, will announce today whether he will run for the White House as an Independent. Well liked in Virginia and among blue dog democrats, Webb could be extremely damaging to the Democratic ticket in the Old Dominion and potentially throughout the rust belt. Gathering 3-4% of the vote would likely be enough to foil Democratic chances in those critical battlegrounds.
Update: Webb announced that he will not run due to a lack of funding. A major bullet dodged by the Democratic Party.
