E.W. Jackson: No daylight with Ken Cuccinelli
By EMILY SCHULTHEIS at Politico
E.W. Jackson, the GOP lieutenant governor candidate in Virginia who’s made headlines since his selection earlier this month, said in a radio interview Friday that he and gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli see eye-to-eye on the issues.
“Look, we are in fundamental agreement,” Jackson said, when asked on the radio station WMAL whether he and Cuccinelli would “run as a pair.” “I’ve heard that this ticket is probably more homogeneous than almost any ticket in the history of Virginia, so there’s no stark disagreement between us.”
He went on to note, however, that Virginia elects each position individually and the two men will campaign on their own.
“There may be some nuances here and there, and I don’t think we’ll be afraid to express those,” he said. “But we’ve got to run individually, as you know each candidate gets elected in a sense on his own, so we will be doing a little bit of both.”
