    elections being bought, a little state campaign finance reform is in order. As things currently stand, it is, to paraphrase Dana Houle, the wild west of campaign contributions. Virginia law, in other words, would seem to imply people DO want elections to be bought.

    Not to mention I didn't see his ginormous fundraising hurting Mark Warner.

      a system that is integral to them getting elected, no matter what the people want.

      Has been Deeds' biggest issue.
      He has pushed for a internet database of all campaign Contributions for State offices & major cabinet posts, for paper trail voting machines, for a Bipartisan Redistricting Commission, for special reporting of Large campaign contributions.....

      He is a Reasonable man and moderate to his bones,
      and not in ANY way an ideologue on any issue.
