Virginia Democrat Lovefest: Round 2
This Saturday, Virginia Democrats rallied once again for party unity. This time the location was none other than on the campus of William & Mary in Williamsburg. Governor Tim Kain was on hand at the event as well as the ever popular Senator Mark Warner. In a speech at the event, Creigh Deeds, the Democratic candidate for governor, promised to govern in the footsteps of his predecessors, Warner and Kaine. "Both Mark Warner and Tim Kaine are popular, successful governors,'' Deeds said. "We're going to build on what [they] have already done." The event was also the first time that the entire statewide Democratic ticket appeared together with Jody Wagner, the Democratic candidate for Lieutenant Governor, and Steve Shannon, the Democrat running for Attorney General. Other Democratic Party VIPs also made appearances at the event including Representative Bobby Scott, Senator James Webb, and many members of the Democratic Caucus in the General Assembly. There is no better way to celebrate a nice lead in a new Rasmussen poll than some Democratic star power and some good barbeque, and the Democrats did just that.
