Web DSC04425aTeaming and ready for victory said Richard “Dickie” Cranwell Virginia Democratic Party chair at an 8:30 Roanoke Rally held at Fire Station No. 1 in downtown Roanoke. Governor Tim Kaine led of followed by Steve Shannon the Attorney General candidate, Jody Wagner the Lt. Governor candidate and finally Creigh Deeds candidate for governor.

Shannon called told the crowd that, “it was their election to win or lose.” Wagner had her husband Allen in tow – a rarity she told the crowd. Gov. Kaine said, “Fire Station No. 1 is like our good karma … our touch stone.”

It was Deeds final speech to energize a crowd of supporters fearful of the outcome but cheering and jeering at the polls showing Deeds behind as much as 18 points. Deeds asked them to be “all in these last hours … it’s about all of us together.”

With that it was over as Governor Kaine had pictures made with him and the ticket went for donuts and coffee set up at the table.

With cards on the political table were also Gwen Mason running for the 17th, Delegate Onzlee Ware running for reelection in the 11th as well as Sheriff, Frank Garrett and Commissioner of Revenue Sherman Holland. CLICK ON PHOTOS TO ENLARGE.
