Candidates Back at the Capitol
Four of Virginia's six statewide candidates will attempt to take a break -- at least briefly -- from campaigning when they return to the state Capitol at noon Wednesday for a special legislative session.
Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Creigh Deeds and Republican attorney general candidate Ken Cuccinelli are both members of the Senate. Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling will preside over the Senate while Democratic attorney general candidate Steve Shannon is a member of the House of Delegates.
Deeds and Cuccinelli were back yesterday for a meeting of the Senate Courts of Justice Committee to talk about how the state might change law to deal with a recent U.S. Supreme Court decision on trials. Deeds did briefly attend the meeting after holding a news conference, but then he apparently left. His premature disappearance prompted Cuccinelli to announce on Facebook:
Okay, we started this Courts Committee meeting just after 230 p.m. to address the Melendez problems. Creigh Deeds showed up briefly today, for about a half hour or so, and he left before we resolved a single issue that we're dealing with, and we're still not done yet.
We'll keep an eye on all four candidates today and let you know if anyone skips out -- or does any politicking. (Yeah, right.)
