McDonnell’s New Ad on Energy – Deeds Points to “Wannabe” Editorial

In a Press release Bob McDonnell, Republican gubernatorial candidate and former Attorney General of Virginia, announced a new general election television ad he called “New Energy, New Jobs.”  The ad is targeted to McDonnell’s “policies to create new jobs, attract new businesses, enact common-sense education reforms, provide innovative solutions to our transportation challenges and bring more opportunities to every citizen of the Commonwealth.”

Sen. Creigh Deeds, the Democratic gubernatorial candidate countered McDonnell’s claim by referencing The Roanoke Times editorial of April 5, 2009. The editorial called McDonnell a “Wannabe Energy Governor”  saying “McDonnell needs to broaden his attention beyond the fossil fuels that have been his focus so far.”

Deeds made no other comment other than emailing the editorial that can be assumed that he agrees with. If you didn’t read carefully that it was an editorial one might think it was Deeds calling McDonnell a “Wannabe Energy Governor.” That’s the whole point – Deeds didn’t have to. He let the editorial speak for him.

Isn’t politics grand!
