Deeds Knocks Down Pr. William Office Rumor

Rosalind Helderman

Has Creigh Deeds closed up shop in Prince William County?

That was the claim on some blogs this morning that lean to the right, featuring a photo of a Deeds office in the county with a "for lease" sign in the window and the suggestion that perhaps Deeds is pulling out of Northern Virginia to concentrate on rural areas instead.

Hogwash, said Deeds's campaign manager Joe Abbey. According to Abbey, the campaign has two offices up and running in the county, one in Dumfries and one in Woodbridge. The office in the photo is in Manassas and, rather than closing it up, the campaign is about to open there.

"Prince William County plays a critical role in our Election Day strategy," Abbey said. He said the campaign believes that after voters compare Deeds's record with that of Republican Bob McDonnell, Deeds will win Prince William and the rest of Northern Virginia "convincingly."

Sure he's not closing up in PWC. Right....

What are you going to believe? Your own eyes watching a video that shows an abandoned office with a for lease sign in the window or a political hack who gets paid to lie for a living?

Oh, and considering that PWC went for McDonnell BIG 4 years ago (McDonnell even bested Kaine in the number of votes he received in PWC), Deeds is delusional.
