Chesterbrook Precinct: An independent sides with McDonnell

Paul M. Hanafin, a 54-year-old executive at a commercial real estate firm, is an independent. He said he voted for Barack Obama one year ago, but he decided to cast his ballot for Republican candidate Robert McDonnell in the final 45 minutes of voting at McLean's Chesterbrook precinct.

In the end, his decision was more about the candidate's "temperament" than a national vote of confidence on Obama, he said.

Hanafin explained in the darkness outside the polling site that his two most important priorities are Northern Virginia getting more of its share in tax dollars from Richmond and better area roads.

He chastised Democrat Creigh Deeds for not getting specific about his transportation plan. "It's almost, in my mind, grounds for disqualification when his major plan for dealing with a big problem is a blue-ribbon commission," Hanafin said.

He also faulted McDonnell, though, for saying that he will privatize ABC stores to pay for roads when this objectively wouldn't be enough to support infrastructure projects he calls for.

"Both of them punted on it," he said.
