Deeds vs McDonnell --- How They Voted


Voters elected Democrat R. Creigh Deeds and Republican Robert F. McDonnell to the General Assembly in the same year, 1991. For the next 14 years, the future candidates for Virginia governor were divided on the most contentious issues of the day.

Today, their voluminous legislative records of almost 40,000 votes show a stark contrast in their philosophies on the role of government, the spending of taxpayer dollars and restrictions on abortion, gay rights and guns.

What exactly are you trying to say Fulk . Deeds wants more government,higher taxes and he doesn't think that gays should have the same rights as everyone else. The NRA endorsed Bob McDonnell.

Will Deeds return the $200,000 from ACORN ?

Toni D, serious question. Why would a liberal, or progressive, vote for Deeds? If it just boils down to not wanting the Republican, that's one thing...without citing McDonnell or the GOP, can you explain why Deeds is worthy of a liberal's vote?
