Women's Group Forms to Oppose McDonnell

Anita Kumar

A new state political action committee called Working Women for Virginia recently formed to oppose Republican Bob McDonnell's views in his race for governor against Democrat Creigh Deeds.

The group is trying to raise enough money to air a TV ad in Northern Virginia during the last week of the election, said Margie Omero, a Democratic pollster who helped form the group.

The group registered with the state two weeks ago, according to the Virginia Public Access Project. It has raised $1,600 in the last day through word of mouth, social networking and online advertising.

"Whatever we raise will be used solely to spread the word about McDonnell's extreme views on women,'' Omero said. 

"I don't think the prospect of more false, divisive and backwards-looking attack ads from Deeds and his national Democratic allies will please Virginians who are roundly rejecting one of the most negative campaigns in the commonwealth's political history,'' said Tucker Martin, McDonnell's spokesman.
