Former Kaine supporter backing McDonnell

Sheila Johnson, a co-founder of Black Entertainment Television, is crossing party lines to endorse Republican Bob McDonnell for governor.

According to The Washington Post, Johnson, who chaired Gov. Kaine’s inaugural committee, said she believes the former attorney general is the better choice for spurring economic development.

Johnson’s opinion could be influential in the African American community, where Deeds has not seen as much support as previous Virginia Democrats running for governor.
