Deeds, McDonnell Attend Fundraisers Tonight
Both candidates for governor will be trying to raise some money tonight.
Republican Bob McDonnell will attend a fundraiser with Mitt Romney, former Massachusetts governor and possible presidential hopeful, at the offices of the American Gas Association in the District. About 100 people are scheduled to attend the fundraiser, which is expected to bring in about $100,000.
The fundraiser prompted a response from the Democratic National Committee, which has been critical of Romney and McDonnell in recent days.
"I suppose if Mitt Romney's trying to burnish his right wing credentials to make up for the credibility gap with his party's base that his serial flip-flopping has earned him, embracing a candidate so extreme that he believes that women shouldn't work outside the home, victims of rape and incest should be denied medical options, and even married adults should not have access to contraception, is a good way to go," DNC Press Secretary Hari Sevugan said.
Meanwhile, Deeds is attending a fundraiser at the home of Harry Watkins and Arvat McClaine at Vistas on the James in downtown Richmond. The couple run Renaissance Inc., a counseling and mentoring service, and helped found the Nubian Village Academy, an African-themed private school.
