(AP) - The Washington Post has endorsed rural Democrat Creigh Deeds in Virginia's Democratic gubernatorial primary next month.
With the endorsement, the Post chose the state senator from Bath
County in the Allegheny highlands over two candidates from the
Former House of Delegates member Brian Moran and former
Democratic National Committee chairman Terry McAuliffe contend with
Deeds in the June 9 primary.
The Post's editorial Friday praised Deeds for having the courage
in his 18 years in the General Assembly to vote for what's best for
Virginia as a whole, including northern Virginia, even if it's not
popular with his rural constituency, saying:
"He has demonstrated an understanding of the problems that matter most, the commitment to solve them and the capacity to get things done. Mr. Deeds may not be the obvious choice in the June 9 primary, but he's the right one," writes the Post.
