Creigh Deeds this week has come out with his new campaign strategy that will focus on pointing out both McDonnell and his own views on abortion. This is a risky move for Deeds since most voters are worried about the economy this election. The Richmond Times-Dispatch reported, "The voters who decide elections expect candidates to propose reasonable answers to questions regarding the economy, transportation, education, and other day-to-day concerns."
That is why he is losing ground in the polls. This is a pathetic attempt by Deeds to regroup his base. If Deeds want to gain headway with voter he has to have solutions and answers of his own. Jerry Kilgore tried this tactic against Tim Kaine with the death penalty just four years ago and...it didn't work.
