Creigh Deeds’ Democratic gubernatorial campaign is out with a new Web site today, focused entirely on Republican Bob McDonnell’s now infamous Master’s thesis.
The site, dubbed “Bob’s Blueprint to Take Virginia Backwards,” uses quotes from McDonnell’s term paper, applied specifically to education, abortion, contraception and women.
It’s no real surprise the Deeds campaign has latched onto this issue, but this is just one more sign that Democrats hope to keep the controversy around as long as possible.
From their standpoint, Deeds is getting tons of press, McDonnell is being panned on editorial pages and (according to Deeds’ people) campaign contributions are rolling in.
Note the red “contribute today” link at the bottom of most pages. Deeds’ advisers believe this issue has LOTS of traction with donors.
