RICHMOND, Va–The gubernatorial election is fast approaching, but you wouldn’t know it on the state’s college campuses.
“I don’t even really know their names…I know DEEDS…right?” John Wassal said, a junior at Virginia Commonwealth University.
Democrat Creigh Deeds is running against Republican Bob McDonnell. Both candidates say they’ve visited numerous universities throughout Virginia, but that hasn’t appeared to increase student interest. Some faculty and students believe the candidates are to blame.
