Ted Cruz wades into Virginia race as battle of VP surrogates rises

October 4, 2013

With less than five weeks until Election Day, Democrat Terry McAuliffe and Republican Kenneth T. Cuccinelli II are lining up high-profile help to raise money and rally their supporters.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton held a fundraiser at her D.C. home this week for Mr. McAuliffe, a chief moneyman for President Clinton during the 1990s, while Sen. Marco Rubio, Florida Republican, headlined a fundraiser in Richmond last month for Mr. Cuccinelli, the state’s attorney general.

Mr. Cuccinelli and Sen. Ted Cruz, Texas Republican, are scheduled to appear in Richmond on Saturday at an annual fundraising dinner for the Family Foundation.

Mr. Cruz has been leading the charge in trying to force the defunding of President Obama’s health care overhaul before Congress agrees to approve a temporary spending measure. Mr. McAuliffe’s campaign took advantage of the scheduled appearance, launching an ad Thursday trying to link Mr. Cuccinelli to the ongoing federal government shutdown.

Analysts say the strategy is likely to continue for as long as the impasse lasts.
