Creigh Deeds: Don't Stop Believing!
Charlottesville - Omni Hotel - Creigh Deeds did it. His fundamental blocking & tackling style of grass-roots politics got the job done. Down-state political pro, Deeds, took the lion's share of the undecided with a going away victory with nearly 50% of votes in the three-way race for the Democratic Governor nomination, leaving 26% for McAuliffe and 24% for Moran (99.8% precincts reporting).
To the delight of supporters, rocking out to Don't Stop by Fleetwood Mac, Creigh Deeds lit up the room with his short speech reflecting on his own American success story, another improbable journey, for a kid from modest means. Only in the United States of America. Amazing.
