Deeds Trying to Follow Mark Warner

Virginia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Creigh Deeds sought to tie himself to the legacy of Sen. Mark Warner in a speech that his campaign called a "defining moment."

Deeds told nearly 200 supporters Friday that he would follow Warner's tradition as governor of seeking bipartisan solutions on issues like education, transportation and economic development. At the same time, he portrayed his opponent, Republican Bob McDonnell, as an acolyte of former President George W. Bush.

Deeds has been trailing McDonnell in polls.
