3. William H. Goodwin Jr. 

Chairman of CAA Industries

A devastated corporate landscape puts a premium on billionaires, and Goodwin, chairman of CCA Industries, is still the godfather in Richmond. He supported former Mayor Doug Wilder, even after he imploded, and sources say Goodwin's retreated somewhat since Mayor Jones took office. But Tom Farrell (No. 1) consults with him often and he's sympathetic to the black political structure — at least more so than some of his corporate comrades. If there's a bridge to be built between Jones and the business community, Goodwin will be key.

Next: 4. Rep. Eric I. Cantor -->
