The two former governors, who have agreed on little else in their hard-fought campaign to succeed Sen. Jim Webb (D), suddenly see eye-to-eye on projectile placards.

“[D]on’t forget that yard signs are made of metal frames that can blow around in strong winds, causing dangerous conditions and damage to homes and property,” Allen said in an email to supporters Sunday. “So for safety, bring them inside.”

Kaine made the same request in an email of his own: “[T]he last thing we want is for yard signs to become projectiles.”
