New Deeds Ad: 'Detrimental'

Rosalind Helderman

Democrat Creigh Deeds has a new McDonnell thesis-related ad going up in television markets statewide. The new ad begins, "What kind of person writes a thesis calling working women 'detrimental to the family' ... then lies about his opponent to cover up his own record?"

I don't think we're supposed to conclude a very good one!

As this race gets nastier and nastier, the ad relies heavily on newspaper clips to slam Republican Bob McDonnell as a guy running a deceptive campaign. (In that regards, it's similar to a McDonnell ad that went up last week that makes the same claims about Deeds.)

You can watch the new spot here:

Mr. McDonnell's writings are important to the governor's race. His thesis as an adult man speaks volumes to his character and beliefs. I do not believe him when he says his views have changed in recent years, and it's sad that his wife and daughter have had to publicly defend him in some of his recent campaign ads.

As a working woman, I'm proud of my education and work accomplishments. I am valuable to my family, my community and Virginia, the state I was born and reared in.

I ask, how could any Virginia woman, knowledgable of this thesis, vote for Mr. McDonnell for governor of our state?
