Elleithee Back in the Game

Amy Gardner

Mo Elleithee, Terry McAuliffe's communications guru during the Democratic primary for governor, has returned from the wilderness.

Okay, he wasn't really in the wilderness. He was luxuriating on the Caribbean island territory of Anguilla, probably having loads more fun than the rest of us. And he's still on Jody Wagner's team in the lieutenant governor's race.

In the meantime, Elleithee has signed on as senior communications advisor for the state Democratic Party as well as Gov. Tim Kaine's PAC, Moving Virginia Forward.

As the the party's newest spokesman, Elleithee noted that this represents his fourth head-to-head against Republican Tim Murtaugh, who signed on just recently with the state GOP. The two battled previously in the George Allen-Chuck Robb Senate race in 2000 and Mark Earley-Mark Warner and Jerry Kilgore-Tim Kaine governor's races in 2001 and 2005, respectively.

Elleithee points all this out, needless to say, because he's currently ahead two to one in the series.

He is about to go 2 out of 4. The Dems can throw their best operatives at Deeds but BO numbers are going to kill Deeds and the Dems this cycle.

BO's numbers, please! Deeds has been a horrible candidate since the day he announced for the race. Now, thanks to the stupidity of VA Dems and the Washington Post, VA will see just how fast McDonnell can roll back every single advance of Warner and Kaine.....Not to mention giving the GOP a huge shot of confidence going into the Midterms.
