Creigh Deeds Announces 10 Debates and Forums Scheduled

ALEXANDRIA – Sen. Creigh Deeds, the Democratic nominee for governor, will appear at 10 debates and forums across Virginia over the next 105 days, pending the acceptance of Republican nominee Bob McDonnell.

On Tuesday, Deeds’ campaign released a schedule of 10 debates and forums, beginning with the Virginia Bar Association debate on Saturday. The proposed list includes events in every region, in a wide variety of formats and before a variety of audiences.

“We’re looking forward to talking to Virginians all over the Commonwealth about Creigh’s plans to jumpstart Virginia’s economy, keep Virginia a low-tax, business friendly state, and create good jobs at good wages. We hope the McDonnell campaign will agree to appear with us,” said Campaign Manager Joe Abbey.
