The Governor's race heats up - from Anita Kumar

from her blog at the Washington Post.

Deeds is upset at Terry's new ad on the 2002 vote on payday lending and saying that only Terry is for ending payday lending.  Deeds spokesman Brooke Borkenhagen notes that the 2002 bill was intended to regulate payday lending and was supported by Mark Warner, which is why Dems in the general assembly at the time supported it.  

She notes that just this year, when Deeds was the only candidate to be serving the General Assembly, he worked to get passed a crackdown on the lenders. "You've got to look at what they've done, not just what they say."

All three campaigns have now called for an end to payday lending.  

Also of interest is that Moran campaign has decided to go over Terry as a banker.  Note the following two paragraphs:

Meanwhile, Moran campaign manager Andrew Roos today wrote federal regulators, asking that they release documents from their examination of the Federal City National Bank, which McAuliffe became chairman of at age 30 in 1988.

In 1991, federal regulators found the bank had engaged in "unsafe, unsound banking practices." Federal City was merged with another bank, a move McAuliffe has said stabilized the institution and cites as an example of his ability to turn around struggling businesses.

Wonder if any of this will come up at either NoVa Jeff Jack (Prince William on Saturday, Fairfax on Sunday) this weekend?
