If the week couldn’t get any worse for Creigh Deeds. Public Safety…no Deeds. Virginia pioneer…no Deeds. Small, innocent puppies? No Deeds. Yep. Even the Humane Society has endorsed Bob McDonnell. (h/t: Virginia Virtucon) If a puppy can’t love you, who will?
Paul Goldman, former DPVA chair and campaign manager for Doug Wilder’s 1989 run for Governor, call’s Wilder’s statement “to be of particular trouble for Creigh Deeds”: The failure of former Governor Wilder to endorse Mr. Deeds is one thing: the statement Mr. Wilder issued to justify explain it quite another.

Criegh Deeds, in his own words, in today’s Washington Post: The day after I’m elected, I will begin assembling a bipartisan commission to craft a comprehensive transportation package. Like Gov. Baliles did, I will appoint Republicans, Democrats and independents along with private-sector leaders and transportation experts. The commission would begin work in December and issue […]
Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor Jody Wagner was proud to release a list of Republicans supporting her campaign – and based upon the names of these vaunted GOP leaders, there are no real surprises here: Russ Potts, John Chichester, etc. Not only are these Republicans who voted for the largest tax increase in Virginia history, […]
Providing more proof that newspapers should really stay out of the public policy arena, The Boston Globe has decided they sure liked 1988 and thinks Michael “set my felons free” Dukakis should be the next Senator from Massachusetts.
