Kaine Looks to Budget Showdown
Gov. Timothy M. Kaine (D) and his pollster, Pete Brodnitz, held a conference call with Senate Democratic leaders yesterday to begin preparing a strategy for dealing with the state's budget shortfall, according to officials familiar with the call.
Kaine didn't offer a lot of specifics on how he plans to trim spending, but he said Democratic internal polls show the party has the upper hand with the public when it comes to making budget decisions. Kaine also noted his approval rating remains high despite the budget shortfall.
Brodnitz also told legislators that Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) is in a strong position to win Virginia this fall.
