Potts a nice guy but

Hey novamiddleman, you have the word middle in your name how can you not defend Potts

Yes I am a moderate Republican but Potts left the Republican party

In 2005 he officially ran as an Independent

During the last several legislative sessions he voted with the democrats on many occasions

From the Washingotn Post

Potts had at least as many friends among Democrats as Republicans. 

He received accolades from Chichester (R……), Saslaw (D minority leader) and Fairfax D Senator Howell, and former governor Mark Warner (D)

Its safe to say Chichester is at least a moderate and the Ds are definitely mainstream Ds

During his floor speech Potts endorsed Deeds (D) for Governor and Attorney General

His speech was posted by Assembly Access which is funded and used by the Democratic Party of Virginia

Finally, I view Potts in the same light as many Democrats view Senator Lambert who endorsed Allen for Governor  

Senator Lieberman at least supports the D position on most issues Senator Potts did not support the R position on most issues
