Terry McAuliffe, renowned as the Democratic Party's fund-raising mastermind, is becoming chairman of the Democratic National Convention as planners rush to raise the last $7 million needed to pay for the Los Angeles event. McAuliffe is replacing Roy Romer, the former Colorado governor who resigned from the convention leadership post to become superintendent of the Los Angeles school district.

WASHINGTON - The most closely fought major election of the fall, the race for governor of Virginia, has a lesson for both parties: Your magic bullets are duds. For weeks, partisans on each side have claimed an issue that they argued would sweep their side to victory this year and next. Republicans predicted public anger over Obamacare would power their candidates. On the Democratic side, many said a backlash against the government shutdown would propel their candidates to success.

Here's the bad news for Virginia Republicans, who once ruled the commonwealth politically: There are no limits whatsoever on how much a person or union, say, can give to any one candidate. Here's the good news for Virginia Republicans: Terry McAuliffe, the ex-chairman of the Democratic National Committee, the political powerhouse, is probably running for governor there. Now, if Terry the Tiger's candidacy is good news for the GOP, that tells you how bad things are.

Virginia Democrats spent much of Tuesday night biting their nails with the governor's race too close to call -- despite recent polls showing their nominee with a commanding lead. It was nearly 11 p.m. when Terry McAuliffe took the podium to deliver his victory speech. With 99% of precincts reporting, McAuliffe had captured 47.4% of the vote. His challenger, Republican Atty. Gen. Ken Cuccinelli, a tea party favorite, won 45.5% of the vote. A week ago, a Washington Post poll showed McAuliffe with a 12-point lead.

The charge is familiar: African Americans deliberately excluded from a rigged election. But it's not the Florida presidential fight that's drawing protests this time. It's the selection of a new Democratic Party chairman. By moving to install Terry McAuliffe, a confidant of President Clinton and prodigious fund-raiser, top Democrats have angered many black leaders and other liberal activists who are heading opposition to the nascent Bush administration.

There are lots of reasons why Terry McAuliffe, national campaign director for Hillary Rodham Clinton's presidential campaign last year, lost his own debut in electoral politics in Tuesday's race for governor of Virginia. First, there was the carpetbagger issue. Though he has lived in tony McLean, Va., with wife Dorothy and their children for 17 years, the fast-talking McAuliffe was raised in Syracuse, N.Y., and comports himself with the manic energy -- and speed-talking -- of a New Yorker.

After President Clinton and Democratic fund-raiser Terry McAuliffe played a round of golf in upstate New York on Tuesday, the president made an unscheduled visit to St. Camillus Nursing Home to visit McAuliffe's ailing 79-year-old mother, Millie, who recently had hip replacement surgery. Later in the week, McAuliffe returned the favor--and then some. When former White House Chief of Staff Erskine Bowles at the last minute balked at guaranteeing a $1.

As the Democratic National Convention opened Monday afternoon, Terry McAuliffe stepped onto the stage and into the limelight, unusual territory for the behind-the-scenes mastermind of the party's fund-raising tactics. "We Democrats here may be meeting in the home of Hollywood, but the Philadelphia Republicans delivered an Oscar-caliber performance," he said. "The whole thing was a show, a sham, and a shell game. . . .

Terry McAuliffe, Democratic candidate for Virginia governor, had a rare morning off from campaigning before he was to be at the Viva Vienna Memorial Day street festival, so he spent it throwing out old bottles of salad dressing. It started when a jar of Kansas City barbecue sauce caught his eye, and it occurred to him that he might have picked that up when he was chairman of the Democratic National Committee, which was a lot longer ago than the shelf life of barbecue sauce.

WASHINGTON - President Obama joined the parade of personalities campaigning for onetime Democratic Party chief Terry McAuliffe in the Virginia governor's race, a closely watched swing-state contest that could test both parties' strategy for next year's midterm election. At a Sunday afternoon rally in a Virginia suburb just across the Potomac River from Washington, Obama cast the Republican Party as hijacked by the far right wing and its ideological aims. Northern Virginia, home to tens of thousands of federal workers and civilian contractors, was hit especially hard by the 16-day shutdown of the federal government in a fight over the budget and the healthcare law. "You've seen an extreme faction of the Republican Party that has shown again and again and again that they're willing to hijack their party, the country and the economy … if they don't get 100% of what they want," Obama told the estimated 1,600 people gathered at Washington-Lee High School in Arlington.

Tapping California's political donors, Hillary Rodham Clinton will later this month headline a Beverly Hills fundraiser for Virginia gubernatorial candidate and longtime family friend Terry McAuliffe. The Oct. 30 luncheon, hosted by media mogul Haim Saban and his wife Cheryl, will cost $15,000 per person and $25,000 per couple, according to an invitation. Clinton has largely skirted politics since stepping down as secretary of State in February, but of late has begun advocating for McAuliffe, who is a longtime confidant and fundraiser for Clinton and her husband, former President Clinton.

WASHINGTON -- The possibility of a three-way gubernatorial free-for-all in Virginia evaporated Tuesday, as Republican Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling announced that he would not run as an independent, citing money as the main impediment. Bolling's decision, disclosed in an email to supporters, is good news for state Atty. Gen.  Ken Cuccinelli, the likely Republican nominee. Cuccinelli, a conservative firebrand, figured to be hurt more than  Democratic candidate Terry McAuliffe, a longtime figure on the Washington political scene who was a major fundraiser for Bill and Hillary Clinton.

A conservative group charged Friday that First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton violated federal election law in having Democratic fund-raiser Terry McAuliffe co-sign for her $1.7-million New York home. The complaint, filed with the Federal Election Commission by the Conservative Campaign Fund, alleges that personal loans and guarantees for personal loans have always been treated the same as campaign contributions and are subject to the same $1,000 limit. Mrs. Clinton is eyeing the U.S.

Terry McAuliffe, the most prolific fund-raiser in Democratic Party history, was unanimously elected party chairman Saturday by members who shrugged off his ties to the campaign finance scandals of the Clinton administration. McAuliffe, 43, claimed the post when his sole rival, former Atlanta Mayor Maynard Jackson, stepped aside after days of negotiations.
