The Campaign Spot, back on May 13: “I see a new slogan taking shape: Put Creigh Deeds in the governor’s mansion . . . and take a menace off Virginia’s roads! “
This was after the candidate had two accidents, one time rear-ending another car and the other time hitting a bear.
The news, today: “The state senator from Bath County was ticketed on July 4 in Albemarle County for driving 76 mph in a 65 mph zone. The ticket was issued two months after he was cited for following another vehicle too closely, according to Virginia court records.”
UPDATE: Yes, that was the problem with the Deeds campaign: the campaign manager.
