More on a Wilder Endorsement

Via the Hotline Blog:

The Hotline has learned that ex-VA Gov/Richmond Mayor Doug Wilder told a major VA paper today that his endorsement in the AG's race would be determined in large measure by what each of the candidates, state Del. Bob McDonnell (R) and state Sen. Creigh Deeds (D), tells him is their position on one of Wilder's signature achievements as governor -- the commonwealth's '93 restriction on handgun purchases to one per month. [JONATHAN MARTIN]

Deeds is wasting no time, and has scheduled a meeting to discuss "one-gun-a-month" with Wilder this Friday, according to longtime Wilder confidante/ex-VA Dem chair Paul Goldman. Goldman said he had also been in touch with McDonnell's camp, and that they were working on scheduling a date to meet.

Then a member of the House of Delegates, Deeds, representing a rural, western VA district, voted against Wilder's proposal. McDonnell, representing suburban VA Beach, supported the legislation. The issue came to the fore of the AG's race last week when the NRA announced their support for Deeds, and said it was in part because of his opposition to "one-gun-a-month."

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man
