Puller Endorses Deeds

Rosalind Helderman

One of Northern Virginia's last remaining neutral voices has decided to make an endorsement in the waning hours before polls open tomorrow: State Sen. Linda T. "Toddy" Puller (D-Fairfax), who said late last week that all three campaigns had called in recent days to ask for her support, has decided to endorse fellow Sen. Creigh Deeds.

Puller noted that she and Deeds were elected to the House of Delegates on the same day and have been deskmates in both the House and Senate chambers. She said she believed Deeds' rural roots would help him beat Repulican Bob McDonnell in the fall.

"I also admire Brian Moran, but I think Creigh is the one who now has the momentum," she said. "I think he has a good chance to win the primary--and I think he's our best hope to beat Bob McDonnell in the fall"

She said she believes Deeds' has his priorities straight--pledging to fix transportation in his first year in office.
