Barnie Day Predicts Deeds Victory in November

What a party last night at the Charlottesville Omni! The eyes of the Commonwealth (and beyond) were on Charlottesville as Creigh Deeds celebrated his stunning victory here in the Democratic primary for Governor. Congratulations to Creigh and to Jody Wagner for their convincing wins yesterday. It's great to see the party now lining up behind them as the Deeds/Wagner/Shannon ticket prepares for a tough race this fall. (In Charlottesville, of course, that's the Deeds/Wagner/Shannon/Toscano/Norris/Szakos/Brown/Brown/Chapman/Richards ticket. Damn, that's going to make for a looooooong bumper sticker.)

There's been a lot of commentary over the last 24 hours about How Deeds Won, How the Other Candidates Lost, What Deeds' Victory Means, etc., etc., but now's the time to start looking forward. To that end, I recommend this analysis by former Delegate Barnie Day: While we absolutely cannot take anything for granted, I think Day hits the nail on the head when it comes to the dynamics of this race and I agree with him that Creigh's in very good shape to win it on November 3. Go Creigh!
