Lately, Virginia Gubernatorial candidate, Terry McAuliffe (D) is having a rough time getting his campaign off the ground. With the news of his company, GreenTech Automotive, becoming the next Solyndra, BuzzFeed reports that McAuliffe is quite the family guy. Virginia Values Voters, take note with passages like abandoning your wife and newborn child for a political fundraiser surface, you know where his values lie. Also, he still considers his home to be Syracuse, N.Y., which leaves one to ponder if his plans to boost the economy will lead to higher taxes, just like his “home state.”
Aside from the reports of personal details, a recent Washington Post poll shows that Ken Cuccinelli (R) has an early lead over McAuliffe. It might be small, but as more details emerge about McAuliffe’s plans for the Commonwealth, the polling could show a more dramatic lead for Cuccinelli. You can read more about the poll here.
Last, but not least, McAuliffe tried to shed more light on his plan by delivering remarks in Charlottesville recently. For those who are wondering how McAuliffe is planning to create jobs in the Commonwealth of Virginia, we should try to examine his remarks, which were loaded with excuses like “It’s hard to recruit businesses…” and ”GreenTech is producing more than a far cry….”
Cheer up, Terry! Things have got to get better, right?
