Why I’m voting for Cuccinelli

For more than a decade, Ken Cuccinelli has dedicated himself to the citizens of the Commonwealth of Virginia. From 2002 until 2010, he served as a member of the Virginia Senate. As a state senator, Ken led the fight to defend constitutional rights, stop tax increases, protect life and families and keep Virginia a low-regulation and pro-free market state.

In 2010, Ken Cuccinelli received overwhelming support from the citizens of Virginia and was easily voted in as Virginia’s Attorney General.

As Attorney General, he has continued his fight against the federal government’s overreach by filing suit to stop the president’s so-called Affordable Care Act and working to prevent the Environmental Protection Agency from unfairly hampering business in the commonwealth.

Not satisfied with only working on the monumental task of protecting the citizens of Virginia from the federal government, Ken Cuccinelli also worked to stop human trafficking, combat domestic violence and protect our children from predators.

In comparison, Terry McAuliffe has never held public office. Instead, for the past decade, Terry McAuliffe has worked for big-government liberal Washington, D.C., insiders, raising hundreds of millions of dollars for the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s failed 2008 presidential campaign.

When he wasn’t raising money to help fund the liberal agenda, Terry McAuliffe was busy bankrupting Global Crossing and sending Virginia jobs to other states.

This is why I am voting for Ken Cuccinelli. Instead of looking out for only himself and his friends, Ken has been constantly striving to make Virginia a better place to live and do business in and will undoubtedly continue this fight if elected as Virginia’s next governor.

While we may not all agree with every position that Ken Cuccinelli has taken, we can all agree that he has been loyal to the commonwealth of Virginia and has worked hard to protect its citizens.

Does anyone really know where Terry McAuliffe is even from? He has shown that his loyalty is to the D.C. Liberals and not to Virginia.

I am voting for what’s best for Virginia, and that is why I am voting for Ken Cuccinelli.
