  1. A “citizen” question (asked by the rep of the League of Women Voters) was submitted by Lisa Guthrie, who happens to be Executive Director of the League of Conservation Voters– who endorsed Creigh Deeds.

    How convenient that the panelist asked her question over the many others who are not registered lobbyists– http://www.vpap.org/lobbyists/lobbyist/44494

  2. Saw the debate, but I’m leaning hard for Mr. McDonnell only because I see someone who is responsible enough to face things head on without excuses. It seems that every time Mr. Deeds speaks, he’s whining about “What Bob said” about him. We need strong leadership, not whiners, straight talkers, not stuttering and a real plan, not committees to be determined. Although the Republican leadership has been questionable lately, McDonnell did not step away from them although Deeds has avoided Obama like he was the plague. Fascinating, but short of a miracle, my vote is going to be for the Attorney General.
