Deeds Camp Headed to NoVa
How important will Northern Virginia be in the upcoming general election for governor?
Here's one indication: Creigh Deeds will soon be moving his campaign headquarters from Charlottesville to Northern Virginia, likely to Alexandria.
Deeds said today that he will have offices all over the state, including an office in Charlottesville. But the HQ and top staff will be migrating north over the next few weeks.
"In the general election, we're going to have to do very well in Northern Virginia," Deeds said. "That means we have to be closer to our volunteer base there. We have to be strategically positioned to take advantage of the resources there."
He noted that Northern Virginia is home not just to Democratic donors but also tons of Democratic voters, strategists and elected officials. Though NoVa has trended blue in recent elections, Republican Bob McDonnell has already said he plans to fight hard for the area, noting he grew up in Fairfax and knows the region well.
McDonnell campaign will also have offices statewide but is headquartered in Richmond.
