Deeds Continues to Push McDonnell Thesis
As expected, Creigh Deeds's campaign continued today to try to make Bob McDonnell's thesis an issue in the race for governor.
The campaign held a conference call with moderate former legislators who served with McDonnell in the General Assembly. Of course, these are Republicans who have said they are breaking with their party to support Deeds.
Here's what they said about McDonnell:
"His record really has been one of pushing social issues in the entire time he has been in the assembly, and for him now to try to back away from that is the total reinvention of that now so he can be governor,'' former delegate Jim Dillard of Fairfax said.
"I believe Bob McDonnell wants to govern from the right and I believe he will have an extreme right-wing agenda if he's elected governor,'' former senator Russ Potts said.
Meanwhile, McDonnell's campaign is trying to move on. McDonnell traveled to Alexandria to roll out the fourth part of his education plan. More on that soon.
