New Deeds Ad on Education

Rosalind Helderman

Democrat Creigh Deeds is out with a new ad, a spot that does not mention his Republican opponent at all and instead focuses on Deeds' education proposals. The ad particularly highlights Deeds' Virginia Forward scholarship proposal, in which Deeds has said he would offer a 50 percent scholarship to any Virginia student at a Virginia public college who maintains a B average and commits to spending two years in public service after graduation.

The ad begins airing now in Richmond and will expand to other markets next week--no word yet on which.

Watch it here.

Good ad.

As always, I wish ads were longer than 30 (or 60) seconds. Deeds has a lot to say about how public education transformed his life, about his two grandmothers who were public school teachers, about his great voting record on this issue, and his other education proposals in this campaign. But at least we got some of the high points here. If you want to see more, I'd watch his speech at George Mason on Youtube (I think you can find it on his site as well, under the videos).

I hope Deeds does some more education ads. Education is the key to economic prosperity for any state and voters know it.

Typical Democratic strategy . . . if they can't win their hearts and minds, we'll just buy their vote.

How's Mr. Tax Flip-Flop going to pay for it?
