McDonnell gets last-minute biz endorsement

Anita Kumar

Less than a week before Election Day, Republican gubernatorial candidate Bob McDonnell picked up the endorsement of the Greater Washington Board of Trade, a key business group in the D.C. metro region.

The group endorsed Democrat Mark Warner in 2001, but declined to endorse in the 2005 race between Democrat Tim Kaine and Republican Jerry Kilgore.

"We believe Bob McDonnell will focus the attention needed to improve this region's transportation crisis and enhance economic development efforts throughout the commonwealth, which in turn helps strengthen the entire greater Washington region," said John M. Kane, board chairman and president of Office Movers, Inc.

Kane said the group endorsed after interviews with McDonnell and Democrat Creigh Deeds. Issues of importance to the group include transportation, emergency preparedness, energy and the needs of the region's workforce.

Would would endorse deeds for any position after sitting down and listening to him. He is non-coherent and a simpleton. He has no new ideas - he just runs against the other guy. He thought he could coast in on Kaine's coattails. Unfortunately for him, Kaine was too busy jet setting around for the DNC. kaine spent more time in NJ helping corrupt corzine than in Va for Deeds. LOL.
