4. If he won, Bob McDonnell would be picking his replacement aka George Allen

I suspect this might also be the reason why Bob Casey won't run against Tom Corbett.

Before a US Senator who becomes Governor-elect can actually be governor he has to resign.

That means the senate seat would become open BEFORE the old governor is replaced with the new Governor.

And I suspect Teabaggers like Corbett or McDonnell would not be so considerate to replace the senate seat with someone from the party of the senator vacating the seat.
