Friday Campaign Roundup

24 Jul

It’s been a busy week on the Virginia campaign trail..

On Monday:  Sheila Johnson endorses Bob McDonnell

On Wednesday:  Governor Kaine recognizes a leader in Ken Cuccinelli

A bit too much?  Probably.  A bit too snarky?  Probably.

Did it strike a nerve?

It’s finally Friday…

Another Doug Wilder story, and more confusion
The right-wing liberal

As one of the few remaining Democrats who respect the taxpayer, he has always been skittish about his party’s leftward lunge on economic issues. Those of us who remember his years as Governor will always be grateful for that.

Wilder says “No”
Tertium Quids

This really is “Doug being Doug,” but because he still retains quite a high profile, it ought to be troubling to the Deeds campaign.
