Deeds Betting Big On New TV Ads

Play associated audio

In Virginia, Democrat Creigh Deeds is betting big on new TV ads that are the most specific attack yet on a conservative thesis his opponent wrote 20 years ago.

Deeds' gubernatorial campaign launched a $750,000 week-long statewide run for three ads today. Two are withering summaries of Republican Bob McDonnell's 1989 paper-- critical of working women, feminists and gays.

One of the two ads features unsmiling women, one of whom says, "Bob McDonnell, we know what you wrote about working women." In a third, Deeds is shown driving through the countryside, describing himself as someone who can "bring people together" and extolling a love for the state. This comes after a weekend Washington Post poll hinted Deeds is narrowing McDonnell's lead.
