Deeds vs. McDonnell Debate I
It is the biggest event in the early stages of the campaign for Governor. Creigh Deeds and Bob McDonnell square off in what is currently the only officially confirmed face to face debate. The debate promises to set the stage for the upcoming three month sprint to election day.
The debate is being held at the far flung resort the Homestead, a close to 3 and half hour drive from Richmond, but in an interesting turn of events you can watch from the comfort of your own home through a live web stream on VirginiaTalks.com, a new venture from Style Weekly. (In fact Bacon’s Rebellion has some interesting insight into how this venture allows this normally isolated tradition to be shared with the rest of the Commonwealth.)
The debate begins at 11am.
We will have a crew in Hot Springs for the event and I will have a complete wrap tonight on NBC12 news at 6 and 11. I will also provide more in depth insight and some clips from the event here on Decision Virginia later this evening.
