Former GOP Lawmakers Back Deeds

Democratic gubernatorial nominee Creigh Deeds touted the support of former Republican lawmakers, hoping to show voters he’s committed to bi-partisanship.

Deeds said the endorsements are meaningful because the legislators worked with him and with Republican gubernatorial nominee Bob McDonnell.

“[Deeds has] never let the R or the D or the I get in the way,” said former state Sen. Russ Potts (R-Winchester) of Deeds’ bi-partisan efforts.
