Moderator Proves Tough in Salem
Moderator Jay Warren is tough on both guys tonight. Here's a rough exchange he had with Democrat Creigh Deeds, pushing him on his transportation plan.
Warren: "What tax would you see increase under creigh deeds?"
"What tax would you see increase under creigh deeds?" Deeds asked incredulously.
"I can answer that," McDonnell said, as the crowd laughed.
"No you can't," Deeds responded.
"What I've said is that anything that has a nexus to transportation," Deeds began.
"What does that mean? Sales tax on cigarettes? Alcohol?" Warren asked.
"Anything that has a nexus to transportation. Anything that involves all the people who use the transportation system, both people who live in state and out of state."
