Shannon releases two TV ads
Steve Shannon’s campaign for attorney general released two new television advertisements today. The ads contrast Shannon’s experience as a prosecutor with opponent Ken Cuccinelli’s lack of experience and misplaced priorities when it comes to keeping Virginians safe.
“This election is about which candidate has the record and the ideas to make Virginia a safer place,” said Shannon. “Unfortunately, my opponent has not released a single public safety proposal. Instead, he has focused on divisive issues and his personal political agenda, and has even said won’t enforce laws he disagrees with. Virginians need an attorney general who will put their public safety first, not one has been a consistent outlier on domestic violence, child abuse, and keeping guns away from felons.”
Shannon, a former Fairfax County prosecutor, has prosecuted hundreds of cases involving drugs, drunk driving, gang violence, and Internet crimes against children. He began his career in public safety when he and his wife helped to lead a coalition of law enforcement, local media and community partners to bring the AMBER Alert, a rapid response system for recovering abducted children, to Virginia.
Shannon has received the endorsements of the Virginia Coalition of Police and Deputy Sheriffs, the Virginia Police Benevolent Association and over 40 other Virginia law enforcement and first response organizations and leaders.
