Former Think Tank President Running for Governor in Virginia

Here is more from the Washington Post:

Peter Doran, a former Washington think tank executive and author, joined the crowded race for Virginia governor this week with a promise to phase out the state income tax.

Doran is the former president of the Center for European Policy Analysis, where he used to help former Soviet bloc countries rebuild after “the ravages of socialism,” according to his biography. An Arizona native, he has lived in Virginia since graduating from Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service in 2006.

Here is a link the the homepage of the Center for European Policy Analysis (CEPA), whose current President and CEO is Dr. Alina Polyakova.  Amb. Kurt Volker, who served as US Special Representative for Ukraine Negotiations, is a Distinguished Fellow at the think tank.

Mr. Doran, who is an expert on Russia, Ukraine, and transatlantic relations, also served as a George C. Marshall Fellow at the Heritage Foundation.
