Creigh Deeds thinks Obama and the National Democrats are sinking his bid to become Governor of Virginia. And there may be some truth to that. But instead of distinguishing his bid as a candidate with ideas, Deeds has gone the route of concentrating on a 20 year old thesis, as Republican Bob McDonnell methodically travels the state explaining his ideas to bring jobs and finance education with a $480 million increase for teacher’s and classrooms, as well as a comprehensive plan for transportation.
While Obama and Kaine have done little to bolster Deeds’ chances by moving the Democratic Party so far to the left most Virginian’s no longer relate to them, Deeds has also done little to help his own cause.
And it does appear the National Democrats are writing off the Deeds Campaign, leaving Deeds in the weeds.
