Deeds campaign responds to Wilder decision not to endorse
Jared Leopold, spokesperson for the Democratic nominee Creigh Deeds, released this statement in the wake of L. Douglas Wilder’s decision not to back a candidate for the race for Governor in 2009.
“We respect Governor Wilder’s decision. While Creigh and he may not agree on every issue, they share a fundamental commitment to keeping Virginia the best managed state in the nation, as Governor Wilder first made it in 1992. As governor, Creigh intends to seek Governor Wilder’s counsel often, and looks forward to working with him.”
