The race for governor of Virginia is nearing the home stretch, and in a move that could mirror the election, Republican Bob McDonnell has picked up four newspaper endorsements vs. two for his Democratic opponent Creigh Deeds.

McDonnell, won endorsements from the Richmond Times-Dispatch, the Bristol Herald Courier, the Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star, and the Culpeper Star-Exponent.

On Sunday, Deeds picked up the endorsements of the Roanoke Times and the Norfolk Virginian-Pilot. He was also recently endorsed by the Washington Post.

The Nov. 3 election, one of two gubernatorial races in the U.S. this year, is being watched for possible national political
implications.

President Barack Obama, the first Democrat to win Virginia since Lyndon Johnson, is coming to campaign for Deeds in Norfolk this
week.

Deeds trails McDonnell in surveys of likely voters, although the margin is close.
