Congratulations to State Senator Creigh Deeds in his victory in the Va. Governor's primary. He ran a good state-wide campaign and out polled each of his two opponents by nearly two to one.
Sen. Deeds ran for State Attorney General four years ago with labor's support. I expect that he will again seek our support in November.
On a sad note, it appears that my former Delegate from the 38th District, Bob Hull, lost his primary contest. With over 5,000 votes cast, he fell short by 66 votes. I hope that the 20-25 members of Local 602, which I contacted last week, took the time to vote.
Delegate Bob Hull was a strong backer of union issues during his eight terms in the Va. House of Delegates. We will miss his support.
