Packed Patio at Fork in the City to See Creigh Deeds – Video

Craigh Deeds at Fork in the City.

Craigh Deeds at Fork in the City.

If there was any doubt  that Democratic gubernatorial candidate Creigh Deeds had Roanoke support then those crammed on Fork in the City’s patio should tell you something. WDBJ7’s poll just released shows him up two more points at 42% with 30% for Terry McAuliffe and 21% for Brian Moran.

I missed his 2 minute speech but got some good video and pictures. After all what more is there to say – the end is nigh. Deeds best line of the evening was “who says nice guys can’t finish first?”  Councilman Dave Trinkle and his wife Ann hosted the Deeds rally at their newly opened hotspot, Fork in the City on Marshall Avenue. Dr. Trinkle treated everyone with free pizza. Well at least I thought it was free and ate my fill. On hand was political strategist Dave “Mudcat” Saunders, Roanoke County Sheriff Gerald Holt, Board of Supervisor member Charlotte Moore, Commonwealth Attorney Don Caldwell, former Roanoke Council member Linda Wyatt, Jack Tompkins Roanoke Valley Sister Cities, and Senator John Edwards.

I again spotted the Bob McDonnell spy following Deeds around recording his every word. It must say something that the spy was not at McAuliffe’s visit nor Moran’s visit to Roanoke on Sunday. Evidently the McDonnell campaign watches the polls – do you think?

Enjoy the pictures and video. After tomorrow the real political campaigning will start. Did you think it was over tomorrow – all those robo calls? How many did you get?
