In their final debate before the gubernatorial race two weeks away, Democrat Creigh Deeds and Republican Bob McDonnell sparred early on transportation plans.
In a freeform format that let the men interact Tuesday evening, McDonnell said Deeds had no clear plans for building roads.
Deeds again offered only general concepts, saying he would sign a bill raising taxes on items that "had a nexus to transportation." When asked to specify, he said it involves how people travel.
But McDonnell was also taken to task for a list of ideas, many of which aren't permitted, have failed repeatedly in the General Assembly or are based on questionable revenue assumptions.
