Creigh Deeds wins Virginia’s Democratic Gubernatorial primary

This really wasn’t expected just a couple weeks ago. But, Creigh Deeds won the Democratic primary in Virginia’s governor’s race tonight:

State Senator Creigh (CREE) Deeds has won Virginia’s Democratic primary for governor.

Deeds beat former Clinton White House insider Terry McAuliffe and former state Democratic legislative leader Brian Moran on Tuesday.

The victory sets up a Deeds rematch with Republican Bob McDonnell, who beat him in the 2005 attorney general election by 323 votes.

McDonnell is a conservative with strong ties to religious broadcaster Pat Robertson. He was unopposed for the GOP nomination.
