Good Deeds

Only one person running for governor is juggling a campaign along with working on the people's business. Senator Creigh Deeds kept his Senate seat to represent his constituents, is on the campaign trail to win the Democratic gubernatorial nomination, and gave up a couple months of fundraising (state law prohibits it of members during the session). All the while he has to deal with sniping from opponents and Republican legislators who don't judge Deed's bills on merit as they rush to deny him legislative victories.
The Roanoke Times has an excellent article on Deeds maintaining legislative focus while in the middle of a statewide campaign.
