George Allen to announce Senate run soon

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Former Senator George Allen seems poised to mount a run for his old job.

The web site "Politico" reported this morning that Allen is very close to formally jumping back into the race for his seat that he lost in 2006.

Allen has already hired staff and has been criss-crossing the commonwealth for the last several months.

Richmond tea party activist Jamie Radtke has already announced plans to run for the republican nomination.

The incumbent, Jim Webb said he will announce his plans by April.
