Obama Stumps for Deeds
With less than a week left before Virginians pick a new Governor, President Obama came to Norfolk yesterday to stump for Creigh Deeds. Looking for last minute votes Obama told his fellow Democrats not to despair, that despite the polls showing Deeds trailing by double digits there was still time for Deeds to come back.
Deeds has still not solidified his base, and at this late into the campaign that is a serious problem. Frankly Democrats are not inspired by Deeds, and a low Democrat turnout next Tuesday could not only sink Deeds, but Democrats down ballot as well.
We shall see.
