In bellwether election, Deeds and McDonnell answer your questions

Answering questions submitted on Google Moderator and YouTube, Virginia gubernatorial candidates Creigh Deeds and Bob McDonnell signaled that their contest is being influenced by the national political mood.

“Frankly, a lot of what’s going on in Washington has made it very tough,” said Deeds, the Democratic candidate. “We had a very tough August because people were just uncomfortable with the spending; they were uncomfortable with a lot of what was going on, a lot of the noise that was coming out of Washington, D.C.”

With a month to go, both candidates will campaign hard for the State's top spot - and to prove that their party is looking good moving into next year's midterm elections. Learn more from the Politico, who hosted these debates alongside WJLA - a full video of the interviews is up now on YouTube:
