The first Father-in-Law endorses the Democrat…again…

The Richmond Times-Dispatch is reporting that tomorrow former Governor, former Republican, and current Father-in-Law of the current Governor will endorse Democrat Creigh Deeds. [Jindal boosts McDonnell; Linwood Holton backs Deeds]

I’m not psychic, but I could’ve told you that months ago.  Who can tell me the last time Linwood Holton endorsed the Republican for Governor?

Even though they both came from the same region in Southwest Virginia, endorsing Jerry Kilgore in 2005 would’ve severely limited the invitations to Thanksgiving Dinner at the Executive Mansion.

Holton also endorsed Mark Warner over Mark Earley in 2001.  That’s the year Holton’s son-in-law was elected Lt. Governor.  You get the picture.

So sorry, we’re neither surprised nor impressed that Holton is throwing the “weight of his endorsement” behind Creigh Deeds.  Holton’s been touted for bringing the rural Virginia vote to Mark Warner.  But we thought Deeds that that all locked up.

The RTD refers to Holton as a “centrist Republican.”  Linwood Holton hasn’t been a Republican since I was in puberty.  And if I hadn’t cancelled my membership over their support of Obamacare, I’d swear to that on my AARP card.
