Governor Terry McAuliffe
RICHMOND – Governor McAuliffe today announced that, following a thorough legal review of the case, he will commute the death sentence of Ivan Teleguz to life imprisonment without parole.

Creigh Deeds Democratic candidate for governor finishes up his “Deeds Country” tour. The tour took him to all the small rural towns similar in size to his rural roots in Bath County. Ben Tribbet of Not Larry Sabato does protest too much at times and even he admitted that his insult of the people of rural western Virginia and/or Creigh Deeds went too far when he tweeted:
“Is the Deliverance Tour over yet? (I’m talking about the candidate, not the people of SW Virginia).”
Tribbet though did apologize for his tweet in response to Deeds tweet complaining about judging his campaigns political strategy with the “Deeds Country” tour.
Deeds will not loose much sleep over Tribbet’s tweet I wager as he moves on to the “Ladies of Annandale” on Monday.
