State Senator Creigh Deeds announced he is running for re-election. Deeds has represented the 25th District of the Senate of Virginia since December 2001.
The Democrat made the announcement Monday morning, saying he still wants to work on the transportation and education infrastructures in the Commonwealth.
"I am running for re-election because I am not finished. I am running for re-election because I know that to create opportunity in every corner of this Commonwealth, we have to invest in the necessary transportation and educational infrastructure to support economic growth. We need a transportation system that will move the workers and goods of a world class economy. We need to turn out world class workers and attract the best paying jobs in the world to Virginia by taking a backseat to no one when it comes to education."
Deeds ran unsuccessfully for Virginia governor last year, losing to Republican Bob McDonnell. He also lost the 2005 race for Attorney General of Virginia to McDonnell by 323 votes.
