The Final Push
The entire cast of Democratic characters could hardly fit onto the stage at George Mason University this morning, when Gov. Timothy M. Kaine, former governor Mark R. Warner and U.S. Sen. James Webb led a throng of candidates and legislative leaders at an outdoor rally before hundreds of supporters.
"So far what we've heard from the other side is, 'No,'" Warner said in the autumn sunshine. He urged the candidates behind him on the stage not to reflexively vote Democratic on issue, but, "What I desperately want them to do is not reflexively say, 'No.'"
Gerald E. Connolly, chairman of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, emceed the event. Connolly earned laughs by saying, "First of all, can I mention: I'm on the ballot." He also earned cheers by saying, "Here in Fairfax, we are on the verge of a sweep."
Other luminaries included state Del. Brian J. Moran (D-Alexandria), the House Democratic Caucus chairman; Ward L. Armstrong (D-Henry), the House minority leader; and Sen. R. Creigh Deeds (D-Bath). Deeds and Moran have both been mentioned as possible gubernatorial candidates in 2009.
