In this edition of Virginia Politics On-Demand, your guest hosts Shaun Kenney and Jason Kenney talk about the lengthening list of non-endorsements Creigh Deeds seems to be racking up, along with an in-depth analysis of how the Virginia rightosphere is feeling about polls, whether the Washington Post’s boosting of Deeds is new or just business-as-usual, […]
