Deeds airs closing argument

Rosalind Helderman

Democrat Creigh Deeds has now released his positive, final days television ad. The spot talks about Deeds' endorsement by three of the state's four largest papers and implores voters to elect "substance over style."

The campaign says the ad will air statewide. The question in these closing days for the Deeds campaign will be one of money.

Chances are, no matter where you live in Virginia, you'll be seeing the new spot released by Republican Bob McDonnell a heck of a lot more frequently than this new Deeds ad. According to the Virginia Public Access Project, McDonnell had a cash advantage on Oct. 21 that's only grown since then. Since that day, McDonnell has taken in more than $850,000 in donations of $5,000 or more. Deeds has received only $367,000 in big dollar gifts.

Substance over style? I'm surprised Deeds would ask people to vote for McDonnell like that. I thought Deeds would go down with a fight. But his campaign has not exuded competence to this point. So I guess we shouldn't expect anything more from his closing argument.

Style over substance? You call waffling around on major issues substance? Or wait, it was the overly negative attacks...yeah, that's the substance? Nice try Deeds. You lack substance, leadership and experience.
