Statement on the 2013 Virginia Governor’s Race

November 28, 2012

Washington, DC – Colm O’Comartun, the Executive Director of the Democratic Governors Association, released the following statement today on the 2013 Virginia governor’s race:

“Ken Cuccinelli would be the most extreme major party nominee for governor in Virginia’s history. He has spent the last four years launching anti-science, anti-equality, and fringe partisan crusades at the expense of doing the people’s business. There’s no evidence that his focus as governor would be any different. The people of Virginia need a governor who will be business-friendly and focused on creating jobs and growing the economy, not someone who will needlessly pursue an extreme ideological agenda far outside the mainstream.”
