A new poll from WVEC, the Virginian-Pilot and Christopher Newport University shows Republican Bob McDonnell is comfortably ahead of Democratic challenger Creigh Deeds in the race for Virginia governor.
Bob McDonnell: 44.7%
Creigh Deeds: 30.9%
“They haven’t given folks a reason to say ‘I’m going to vote for Creigh Deeds.’ They’ve only given voters a reason ‘I don’t want to vote for Bob McDonnell.’ I don’t think that’s going to be a winning strategy,” Kidd believes.
Kidd praises McDonnell for running a “disciplined and focused campaign” and says he’s not surprised McDonnell is ahead.
