Former Gov. George F. Allen, one of Virginia's most popular political figures, announced plans to run for the U.S. Senate in 2000 against two-term incumbent Charles S. Robb. Allen, 46, is a conservative Republican whose political star was rising when he left office earlier this year after four years as governor. His bid to unseat Robb, 61, a Democrat, is expected to be one of the most closely watched and fiercely contested congressional races.

OPINION
August 4, 2008 | Nate Silver, Nate Silver is the founder of FiveThirtyEight.com, a political website.
Barack Obama seems to enjoy some enormous advantages over John McCain in their pursuit of the White House. Polls show that more than eight out of 10 Americans think the country is headed in the wrong direction. The Republican brand is in tatters because of the Iraq war and the economic slowdown. And Obama is on pace to raise more money than any presidential candidate in history.
