First Va. gubernatorial debate gets sharp and personal between Cuccinelli, McAuliffe

July 21, 2013

Virginia’s gubernatorial candidates attacked each other’s ethics, experience and intentions Saturday during a first debate that was marked by several sharp – and personal – exchanges.

Republican Kenneth T. Cuccinelli II portrayed his Democratic rival, Terry McAuliffe, as someone who will say or do anything to get elected and whose term as governor would only benefit his political cronies.

Mr. McAuliffe countered that the attorney general is solely interested in promoting an extreme social agenda that would make the state look inhospitable to employers, driving away businesses and jobs.

The candidates tackled transportation, federal health care reform and immigration and found virtually no common ground during the 90-minute debate, held at the Homestead Resort in Hot Springs and sponsored by the Virginia Bar Association.
