A (Brief) Reprieve from the Ads

Anita Kumar

Tuesday's Democratic primary brought an end to all television ads in the govornor's race, including those attacking Republican Bob McDonnell paid for by the Democratic Governors Association.

But it's unclear how long that will last.

The future of the DGA-funded political action committee, Common Sense Virginia, which has spent nearly $3 million on ads criticizing McDonnell, remains uncertain.

Creigh Deeds, the newly minted Democratic nominee, said he has not given any thought to whether those ads should continue. "I am sure we will have some conversations in the coming weeks,'' he said. "I have not put any thought into that."

Emily DeRose, a DGA spokeswoman, also said no decisions have been made. "The future remains to be seen."

Of course, regardless of who is paying, we know that the political ads for and against Deeds and McDonnell will be back. But maybe we will get a reprieve until the end of the summer.
