The Rundown, 8/6

Today will be a big day for gubernatorial candidate Creigh (pron. kree) Deeds in Virginia, as he'll get some campaign help at a rally with DNC Chairman/Gov. Tim Kaine and President Obama, the best campaigner in the land...unless you ask Public Policy Polling. We'll see if Obama's polling slide continues, as Quinnipiac will release a survey on Obama and the economy...and we'll get to relive the beer talk, as Quinnipiac also polled on Obama's Gates/Crowley/healing-of-racial-divisions meeting at the White House. The Senate Judiciary Committee will look at immigration reform...and not to be missed: Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) will deliver a keynote address at the Second Maryland Horse Forum.
