A statement was issued about the joint event:
Join the UVA University Democrats and College Republicans for a vigil for state Senator Creigh Deeds, who is currently in critical condition at UVA Medical Center after being stabbed in his home. The event will be held at 8pm at the UVA Ampitheater on Thursday November 21. Visit our Facebook event page for updates.
It is with great sadness that College Republicans learned the news of Senator Deeds' condition, and we ask the University community to hold the Deeds family in their thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
