Deeds, McDonnell Attend Fundraisers Tonight

Anita Kumar

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.

The difference between the candidates is clear. Creigh Deeds will attend a function with people who have dedicated their lives to helping others who are less fortunate than themselves.

Bobby Mickey Dee will attend a fundraiser with people who have dedicated their lives to enriching themselves at the expense of others who are less fortunate than themselves.

"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"

Holy crap. That says it all to me.

He is so in bed with so many destructive and backward interests, it's astounding!

Being an independent woman voter, I really feel these attacks are getting very creepy and distasteful! It is on all the time here in Falls Church; Deeds assumes he has to beat it like a broken record. Women are not stupid, I got it three weeks ago when this news broke. Maybe your party die-hard likes the broken record, but tell me something new.

I also watched the last debate where Deeds had very little to say coherently.
Bob's a good looking, warm, and confident man and he's not losing all the urban women's votes.
