Virginia Senator Creigh Deeds has won the Democratic Primary here in Virginia. The best candidate for governor, Bob McDonnell, has put out a statement congratulating Deeds on the win.
I think that it is important, though, to understand what a Deeds administration would bring. He has touted the fact that he has a staunch pro-abortion record. He also has supported tax increases on hurting Virginians, left and right. Recently, he has even supported an increase in the state's gas tax. I don't know about you, but I do not want to return to the days when half of my part-time paycheck went to a gasoline bill.
Enough is enough, we can continue the tired policies that we have seen over the past four years, or we can have some fresh and new solutions from a Governor McDonnell. As governor Bob plans to increase the production of energy here in Virginia, which will help to keep gas prices low. He will put money into Virginia colleges and universities to lower costs for students in this state. He will also work to insure that Virginia institutions give better consideration to Virginia students, whose parents pay taxes to support those institutions, rather than seeing those colleges turn away Virginia students with 4.0 grade averages.
It is time for Virginia to have new leadership with new solutions. McDonnell-Bolling-Cuccinelli
