Kaine Congratulates Deeds

Virginia Gov. Timothy M. Kaine congratulated his party's candidate for governor in a statement released tonight.

"The election of Senator Deeds tonight as the 2009 Democratic nominee for governor is an incredible victory for Virginia--and its citizens," Kaine's statement said. "Senator Deeds' victory is a clear signal Virginians want to keep our state moving forward, and I am pleased to extend my congratulations to my friend and colleague on this critical accomplishment."

Kaine continued:

"As Virginia continues to weather the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression, we need elected leaders with the savvy and the courage to make the tough decisions to get our economy back on track. With his years of dedicated public service and real-world experience, Creigh is the ideal leader to keep Virginia the Best State for Business, the Best-Managed State, and the Place Where a Child is Most Likely to Succeed in Life. I've worked closely with Senator Deeds over the years and I am confident he will do what's right for our communities and our Commonwealth."
