Deeds, McDonnell Pick Up Support

Bob McDonnell (R) announced today that more than a hundred local sheriffs and prosecutors have endorsed his bid for governor.

McDonnell touted the endorsements in front of Richmond’s law enforcement memorial. He said he was especially proud that the list of supporters includes 40 Independents.

That group includes elected officials from the NBC29 viewing area:

Sheriffs: Orange, Staunton, Augusta, Waynesboro and Albemarle (retired).

Commonwealth’s Attorneys: Culpepper, Louisa, Harrisonburg, Fluvanna and Orange.

The sheriffs and Commonwealth’s attorneys cited McDonnell’s experience as a prosecutor, legislator and former state attorney general.

Democratic nominee Creigh Deeds today picked up the support of the Virginia Education Association.

“[Deeds has] been a voice for Virginia’s students and educators and has worked tirelessly to maintain and strengthen the commonwealth’s public schools,” said VEA President Kitty Boitnott in a statement.

The VEA is comprised of 60,000 state teachers and is traditionally very politically active.
