Loupassi to Make Run Official

Manoli will challenge freshman Del. Katherine Waddell in 2007.

Not that he hadn't telegraphed his run well before now. But his fundraising letter makes it clear he's running with establishment support:

Loupassi's letter invites supporters to a fundraiser on June 23, at which Rep. Eric I. Cantor, R-7th, will speak, and notes that Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling and Attorney General Robert F. McDonnell, both Republicans, have also pledged their support.

He will be formidable indeed. (Thanks for the tip, Snoopy).

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man
