Goode refuses televised debates.

Rep. Virgil Goode has refused to debate challenger Tom Perriello on TV. Fifth District Republican Chair and Goode’s long-time right-hand man Tucker Watkins had committed Goode to a televised debate, but then Goode claimed that NBC-29 should have known better than to accept a commitment from him. Man, has that got to be humiliating for Tucker.

You might remember Tucker for his creation and distribution of “purple heart band-aids” during the 2004 Republican presidential convention.
