DOOMWatch: Why Creigh Deeds is losing.
It’s because of this question, and the answers. 17. Can you name one good reason that someone should vote for your opponent? DEEDS: [Long pause] You know, I can name you a thousand good reasons why they should vote for me. I’m the best-prepared person to be the next governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia. … Bob is a guy that I’ve always gotten along | Read More »
DOOMWatch: Let the Blue-on-Blue sniping begin in Virginia.
(Via @mattklewis) I would take it as a personal favor from the Left if they would [verb deleted*] Mudcat Saunders. He’s very unhappy about the upcoming Democratic abandonment of Virginia – to the point where he’s obviously indifferent to the fact that he’s openly cussing to CNN about how stupid both the administration and the national Democratic party is being right now. Usually all of | Read More »
It’s official: DOOM for Deeds.
When the trailing candidate’s campaign starts talking about GOTV as the primary strategy for victory, it’s over. …the question that remains unanswered is whether they can prevail in a campaign in which Virginia’s many independent voters have turned against the national Democratic brand and with a nominee who many in the party privately believe has run a mediocre race. The answer will be revealed on | Read More »
Booby Prize for Creigh Deeds.
He asked for the President; he got the Cubslayer. Gore coming to Va. for Deeds Former Vice President Al Gore will be coming to Virginia on Friday to give a last-minute boost to the Democratic candidate for governor, Creigh Deeds, a party source said. Gore will headline a private fundraiser in McLean at the home of longtime Democratic supporters Al and Claire Dwoskin. But surely | Read More »
DNC preparing to cut Creigh Deeds loose?
(Via The Campaign Spot) Not that they would ever, ever come out and say so – but when the one truly hopeful poll that one’s had in months for a particular campaign reverses itself the next time it’s taken again, well. Let’s just say that a handy excuse would be… handy. The bad poll news comes on the heels of a story circulating in Democratic | Read More »
Creigh Deeds panics on tax question.
The whole thing is here (and here), but I wanted to highlight this part: Well, that and I wanted to try out my new video editing software. I think that it looks better. Moe Lane Crossposted to Moe Lane.
Isn’t there a television show that does this sort of thing? Countdown With Keith Olbermann Jackass, or something like that? Bob McDonnell’s campaign received a call this morning from a woman who called herself “Jennifer” and claimed to be a freelance reporter from the Connection newspapers in Northern Virginia. She asked for information about McDonnell’s schedule. The problem? She isn’t a reporter. She actually works | Read More »
Maybe Deeds could try to hit McDonnell with his car?
Ha! Got it right this time. Anyway, this video from the VA GOP: …is a nice supplement to this WaPo article (via Jim Newell, who seems a bit bitter): Democratic gubernatorial candidate R. Creigh Deeds is running behind his Republican opponent in a recent Washington Post poll in large part because he has yet to win over voters in populous, Democratic-leaning Northern Virginia. [snip] In | Read More »
PPP: McDonnell/Deeds 51/37.
[UPDATE] Gah! It’s like a glitch in my brain. McDonnell, McDonnell, McDonnell. That was the response of one of my colleagues from the news that McDonnell has taken a commanding lead in the VA race (and the news that Christie continues to dominate Corzine); while there’s still three months to go before the election, and while Deeds did win the primary despite being the underdog, | Read More »
McDonnell/Deeds 55/40, curse it. [UPDATE: Open Thread]
[Another UPDATE]: Yeah, yeah, yeah: I mucked the name up thoroughly. Sue me. I say ‘curse it’ because if McDonnell had been just one point lower the title could have been McDonnell/Deeds: 54/40, no fight. Anyway, more details here (via @PatrickRuffini). August should prove interesting… Moe Lane PS: McDonnell for Governor. Contribute here. Crossposted to Moe Lane. [UPDATE]: What the heck: open thread. Haven’t had | Read More »
With a day to go in the Virginia Democratic Gubernatorial Primary…
…the carpetbagger from New York and the brother of the anti-Semite are falling behind the guy who keeps hitting people with his car. PPP’s poll is especially good news for the Guy With The Car’s campaign, but it’ll probably still be a nail-biter for the Other side tomorrow. Unless another six polls come out that confirm PPP’s, of course. Or turnout exceeds the five percent | Read More »
The Democratic Virginia primary continues to not surprise.
(Via Jen Rubin) With two weeks left in the Virginia Democratic primary, the failed DNC chairman from New York is still ahead of both the corrupt brother of an anti-Semite and the guy who keeps hitting people with his car (thanks, Jim Geraghty), but the guy with the car is coming up fast: Raleigh, N.C. – The only candidate who has moved forward in the | Read More »
