Gubernatorial nomination ‘a jump ball,’ says Sabato

The Daily Progress reports on the three-way race for the Democratic nomination for governor, with some observers suggesting that money will play a major role.

Sen. Creigh Deeds, D-Bath, is betting that he’ll get more mileage out of tackling tough issues during the General Assembly than using the time to raise campaign cash. State law prohibits fund-raising during the session, which was the major reason former Fairfax Del. Brian Moran resigned before the session.

The third candidate, Terry McAuliffe, had no legislative responsibilities before entering the race, and he already has shown the ability to raise money for other candidates.
