Cuccinelli pushes new TV attack ad
The Cuccinelli for Governor campaign today released a new television advertisement to push its message that frontrunner Terry McAuliffe’s plans would raise taxes on Virginia families.
Titled “Offering,” the spot reiterates the claim from the Republican attorney general that the McAuliffe platform would result in $1,700 in tax increases for Virginia families.
The McAuliffe campaign responded, calling Cuccinelli “desperate.”
“Ken Cuccinelli is now lowering himself to simply fabricating numbers,” said McAuliffe spokesperson Josh Schwerin. “Terry is not proposing any tax increases but Cuccinelli’s radical $1.4 billion tax scheme would cause a budget crisis in Virginia because Cuccinelli refuses to say how he would pay for it. Republicans and Democrats have criticized Cuccinelli’s dangerous and extreme plan for harm it could cause to education and public safety in the Commonwealth.”
