RNC Statement On The Virginia Gubernatorial Debate

WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus released the following statement following tonight’s Virginia gubernatorial debate:

“Ken Cuccinelli decisively won tonight’s debate by displaying an unmatched command of the issues and articulating a positive, reform-minded agenda to create jobs and more opportunity for middle-class Virginians,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. “Terry McAuliffe offered the same platitudes and unserious answers that have cost him major endorsements from Virginia’s business community. With the core of his candidacy destroyed by controversy and federal investigations, it’s clear all Terry McAuliffe is willing to offer voters for the next six weeks are false attacks and obfuscation at every turn. Ken Cuccinelli is the only candidate in this race who has actually fought for Virginia and his victory tonight shows he is also the only candidate prepared to lead on day one.”
