Richmond, VA - Governor Bob McDonnell is asking the state to unite in prayer right now for Senator Deeds and his family.
McDonnell released a statement saying:
"The news from this morning is utterly heartbreaking.
Creigh Deeds is an exceptional and committed public servant who has always done what he believes is best for Virginia and who gives his all to public service.
I urge all Virginians today to join me in praying for a full and complete recovery for Creigh and for many more years of his public service to the Commonwealth."
