Deeds Pulls in the President
President Barack Obama will travel across the river on Aug. 6 for a fundraiser for Democratic gubernatorial contender Creigh Deeds at the McLean Hilton, the Deeds campaign confirmed this evening.
Obama will also appear at some kind of public function that day, Deeds spokeman Jared Leopold said. Invitations for the fundraiser went out a couple of days ago.
"Creigh appreciated it when President Obama called him the day after the primary and we're looking forward to campaigning with him in Virginia," Leopold said.
Undoubtedly, the value of a picture of Deeds and Obama together in Virginia depends on who's talking -- and may change if Obama's popularity does between now and November.
