State Senator Creigh Deeds recently received the endorsement of the Washington Post. At times, Deeds has been the forgotten man in the three-way race, but he appears to be closing strong.
In Public Policy Polling's previous poll, Terry McAuliffe was at 29%, with Deeds and Brian Moran each at 20% and the rest undecided. So, if Deeds really has gained ground since then, he must nearly be neck-and-neck with McAuliffe.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
