Republicans will decide one of the most important factors determining who will be Virginia's next governor in one week.
Primary or convention?
It could mean the difference in which Republican heads up the ticket.

(( All things may now be equal between the Attorney General and the Lieutenant Governor... both Republican... both seeking the top job next year.
But how the GOP candidate for governor is nominated may make a difference.
Analysts think Mark Earley's supporters could sway a convention his way.
John Hager's lieutenant governor job is only part time-- meaning he might have the advantage of campaign time if there's a primary.

Earley says he doesn't care.
But he says Democrat Mark Warner does.
Warner's ready to spend a good chunk of his multi-millions -- with NO opponent on the Democratic side now.
So Warner might like to see Republicans have a costly spring primary.

Senator John Warner and three congressional Republicans say it would increase interest and galvanize the grass roots.
