Bloggers United Debate: McDonnell says yes, Deeds says no

Republican gubernatorial candidate Bob McDonnell accepted an offer from Bloggers United to debate his Democrat opponent, Creigh Deeds, during an upcoming event. However, word has been received that Mr. Deeds will not be participating in that debate.

A statement from Jim Hoeft at Bearing Drift, the organizer for Blogs United:
While I am disappointed that the Deeds campaign has turned away from the online community, and its increasingly growing readership, I am confident that other campaigns and speakers will be interested in participating at our venue.

Also note that the Deeds campaign has indicated that they are not interested in participating in the Politico/YouTube proposed debate.

I have a good feeling about McDonnell, it's been a long time since we have had a Republican I felt could really go a long ways.
