Deeds Takes Page from Obama; Stay Tuned for Rally Coverage

Rosalind Helderman

Creigh Deeds looks to be trying to use tonight's rally with President Obama to inject a little oomph into his campaign for governor.

He just announced a new "Join Deeds" effort to build grassroots support, complete with a revamped Web site (now featuring an enormous photo of Obama), a text messaging push (today's message welcomes Obama and tells recipients -- you guessed it -- "yes we can") and two new radio ads recorded by Gov. Tim Kaine.

One ad appears aimed at Latino voters -- it's in Spanish, after all.

The other talks about education and African-American unemployment rates.

Stay tuned to The Washington Post for full coverage of tonight's rally, including streaming video.

Obama needs to be sent a message that his give-away policies aren't working. He needs to be brought back to earth & realize no one thinks he can walk on water, he's nothing more than an other politician. It doesn't make any difference if he's black, white, pink or blue .... He's not doing the job & it's time to give him a wake up call !!

Why can't we buy health insurance across
state lines? This will create more competition; isn't that what we're looking for? Instead of Government Takeover of healthcare, why not just open up the market and give people more options?? I haven't heard democrats say anything about this. Republicans, can you answer this?
