A stunning new ad from the Cuccinelli campaign highlighting the recent, highly-coveted endorsement from the NVTC. Not only does it show how well-prepared Ken is to govern, it effectively demolishes Terry McAuliffe as a shallow and deeply unserious candidate.
What is truly amazing is not just the ad, though, it’s the report by the Washington Post, which essentially validates every aspect of it:
Cuccinelli’s new ad says he won endorsement by the NVTC’s TechPAC board because of a solid, detail-oriented performance during closed-door interviews with its members while McAuliffe failed to impress. Several images in the ad depict McAuliffe as a slap-happy partier.
It’s also aimed at a central premise of the Democrat’s campaign: McAuliffe has argued that, as an entrepreneur and businessman, he would be better suited than Cuccinelli to preserve Virginia’s reputation as a welcome state for business….
In Cuccinelli’s new ad, a narrator intones adjectives taken from those news accounts describing both candidates’ performance during the TechPAC interviews while images show McAuliffe — apparently culled from TV appearances during his days as a Democratic National Committee chairman and top party fundraiser — wearing a Hawaiian shirt, throwing back a shot glass and holding up a liquor bottle….
Among other things, McAuliffe told the TechPAC that, as an Irish Catholic, he would wine and dine people in Richmond to get things done. He also told them that, unlike Gov. Robert F. McDonnell (R), he would not delve into the details of every piece of litigation but would instead hire others to read bills for him.
Watch the video, and read the article. This is really bad news for McAuliffe.
