Former Virginia Governor George Allen points out the obvious:
He called the carbon-reduction plan, which faces opposition from Republicans and at least 10 Democratic senators including Virginia’s Jim Webb, a “job killer” and an “attack on coal.”
“Coal means jobs in Southwest Virginia – on our railroads, in our ports and to anybody who uses electricity,” Mr. Allen told The Washington Times’ “America’s Morning News” radio show.
Allen hits Deeds squarely where it hurts. No small wonder why Deeds is underperforming south of the Rappahannock.
