Is Deeds singing Virginia's song?
Right as the polls closed at 7 p.m., the music switched on at the nascent Deeds celebration in Richmond.
"Take a load off Annie," sang The Band in their classic tune, "The Weight." "And put the load right on me."
It was a somber sentiment for the handful of attendees who mingled outside the ballroom, cocktail-napkin-wrapped beer bottles in hand.
The next selection was a bit more fitting for a candidate gunning for victory: Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run."
