FYI, the Moran campaign is sending out e-mails to flood the poll.

You mean that they're beating the McAuliffe Campaign at it's own game?

Wow! Moran beats McAuliffe both in the poll and in deceptive Clintonesque campaigning.

We have three talented Democratic candidates and we're going to need a lot of unity and high positives in the fall. Perhaps we could keep the catty comments to a minimum during the primary.

I agree Michael, well said and thank you.

Any of these Democratic Candidates would make a great Governor, and we must keep that fact in mind. Let the Republicans slug it out and tear themselves apart, they seem to enjoy it.

We've got a job to do, and that job is to continue the progressive progress...

Michael and Rockdem - If we have three saints running for Governor, how are we supposed to know for whom to vote, unless somebody shows that there are differences?

I see Deeds as the solid native Virginian. Moran as the transplant who has invested himeself in Virginia (see Warner, Webb, Kaine, etc.) And McAuliffe, as the transplant to whom Virginia was an afterthought, until he had time on his hands.

If on June 10th McAuliffe is the candidate, I'll work for him. No less than either of the others. That doesn't mean I have to like or keep quiet about campaign tactics which so blatantly use money to try to overwhelm the oppisition, or use phony statistics to give unkowing voters the impressions that they are clearly winning, like his mentor's campaign kept trying to do last Spring.

Until June 9th, I'll be trying to decide between Creigh and Brian. Although, Brian has an edge right now.
