Deeds campaign responds to Wilder decision not to endorse

with one comment

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.”

  1. Who cares what Doug Wilder, curmudgeon and egomaniac, has to say anymore? Wilder couldn’t win an election for dogcatcher after the Braves debacle and city hall move fiasco. He was a terrible mayor for our fine city.

    Wilder did NOTHING for transportation during his four years as governor either.

    Creigh Deeds has a plan for economic development and transportation improvements, which go hand in hand, by the way. Creigh will do just fine without Wilder’s “blessing”.
