Senate bid may be in Davis' future

If Rep. Tom Davis (R-Va.), chairman of the House Government Reform Committee, holds on to win against opponent Andrew Hurst next Tuesday, he has his eye on the next challenge'running for the Senate in 2008, should incumbent John Warner decide to retire after five terms.

Warner will be 81 years old when his current term expires.

Davis described himself as 'someone who'd like to go to the Senate in a couple of years.' He is serving his sixth term in the House.

Democratic challenger Hurst has been a tough opponent for Davis. Hurst, a partner with the Washington law firm Reed Smith LLP, is the first challenger since Davis won office to run TV commercials. Conversely, in a year likely to be tough on incumbents, Davis for the first time is spending money out of his war chest on TV spots.

Davis shared his hopes with a friendly audience of integrators and government officials, as lunchtime speaker at the Information Technology Association of America's Information Security Workshop, held today in Falls Church, Va.
