This afternoon, President Barack Obama sent an email to his supporters in Virginia asking them to back Sen. Creigh Deeds in his bid to become Governor of Virginia. President Obama wrote:
Creigh has an ability to bring people together, build consensus and deliver results. He will bring the same bipartisan, pragmatic approach to politics that former Governor and now Senator Mark Warner and my friend Governor Tim Kaine used to help Virginia move forward over the past eight years.
I know that approach works because I’ve spent some time in your great Commonwealth. In my experience, Democratic candidates with a pragmatic approach to solving problems can be successful. That’s the approach my campaign took last November to put Virginia in the Democratic column for the first time since 1964. And that’s how Creigh Deeds will win this fall.
It’s not clear if President Obama sent the email on his Barack-Berry. 😉
