Gap between Rep. Bob McDonnell and Dem. Creigh Deeds tightens. National Review Online Campaign Spot blog contributor Jim Geraghty joins Cam Edwards to discuss recent polls reflecting that NRA-endorsed Republican candidate Bob McDonnell's lead is diminishing in the wake of bad press over a college essay expressing controversial conservative social views. In one poll he is now leading by five points, and another by only two, though Geraghty explains that the drastic change from McDonnell's former 15-point lead should still be treated with skepticism. The 2009 Virginia gubernatorial races are, he predicts, nonetheless going to be close.
