It does not help Deeds that the nation’s first elected black governor, Virginia Democrat Douglas Wilder, is cool to him. Wilder told The Washington Times last week that Deeds risked becoming a “me too” candidate. Wilder then complimented McDonnell for reaching out to Virginians who don’t traditionally vote Republican. Despite a push from the White House, Wilder is miles from endorsing Deeds. McDonnell has made numerous calls on the former governor. Deeds’ first meeting with Wilder is expected this week.
