Deeds Brings Out Big Gun
Poll numbers show that President Obama's approval numbers are slipping. But conventional wisdom suggests the Democratic base, where Obama remains wildly popular, is lethargic and not yet jazzed about Virginia's fall election.
What's Democratic gubernatorial candidate Creigh Deeds to do? We got part of the answer when Obama came to Virginia to campaign with Deeds earlier this month, appearing in Northern Virginia, where the president's word could do wonders for Deeds with Democratic leaning voters.
Today we get another piece of the answer, as Deeds releases his first radio ad featuring the president's voice. The ad will air on African-American radio stations in Richmond, Roanoke and Hampton Roads and includes clips of Obama's speech at the Tysons event, where the president praised Deeds as a family man cut from the same cloth as Govs. Mark Warner and Tim Kaine. Listen to the ad here.
