Now that the General Assembly session is over, re-election is on the minds of Senate Democrats and Republicans, but campaigns need money.

“You have to be creative sometimes, so this notion was just to bring some people together and learn how to do some ballroom dancing,” said Senator Creigh Deeds, (D) 25th District.

To break away from more traditional fundraisers, planners came up with the idea to dance in hopes that the Governor and attendees would have more fun. Many people may not know, but Governor Kaine is an experience ballroom dancer.

Even though everyone was having fun, this last General Assembly session was still a major topic.

“We've got to figure out how to move forward with transportation. The governor and general assembly are working hard together right now to try to come up with a solution. My guess is the best we can come up with is not going to be long term plans,” said Deeds.

So far Deeds doesn't have any opponents in the race, no one has announced to run against him.
