Now we have a more interesting gubernatorial race after Bob McDonnell's masters thesis denigrating working women surfaced over the weekend.
Will it make things tighter and turn this into a winnable contest for Creigh Deeds?
We'll see. The two most recent polls, completed before the thesis made its impact, are from Rasmussen and Public Policy Polling, with McDonnell up by 9 points and 7 points respectively.
These two organizations are expected to release additional polls later in September. If Deeds hasn't closed to within statistical insignificance by then, he's in trouble.
