virginia governor race
To appreciate their vastly different strategies in the race for Virginia governor, simply look at how the candidates spent Monday, the final full day of campaigning before polls open.
Virginia Republican gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli says having former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee with him on the campaign trail is a big boost.
Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe says he knew nothing about allies to his Democratic gubernatorial campaign pressuring members of an influential northern Virginia high-tech business group last weekend not to endorse his Republican rival, Ken Cuccinelli.
In just 57 days and a wake-up, Virginia voters head to the polls to decide who will govern them for the next four years.
If a third-party candidate can’t score points in Virginia’s scandal-scarred gubernatorial election this fall, is there any hope for breaking the two-party stranglehold on Virginia politics?
Virginia’s normally sedate midsummer debate started out edgy, got downright nasty and saw the facts twisted at times as Republican Ken Cuccinelli and Democrat Terry McAuliffe clashed one-on-one for the first time in this year’s only competitive governor’s race.
The first Republican to break the stranglehold Democrats held on Virginia’s executive mansion since Reconstruction is supporting the Democratic nominee in this fall’s race for governor.
Democrats sought on Monday to frame Virginia’s bellwether races for governor and other statewide offices as a referendum on a conservative GOP ticket with particular attention to past comments by GOP lieutenant governor nominee E.W. Jackson likening Planned Parenthood to the Ku Klux Klan.
