McAuliffe clobbers Cuccinelli in first debate
Well, the first debate of the 2013 Virginia Governor's race is in the history books, and the clear winner was Terry McAuliffe. McAuliffe kept his cool and came off as a mainstream, moderate business leader who is well suited to be Virginia next chief executive.
Cuccinelli, on the other hand, had a hunted look in his eye throughout the debate as he tried to run from his record and dodge his roe in the Star Scientific scandal. Cuccinelli's multiple ties to both Bob McDonnell, Jonnie Williams, and Star Scientific make it crystal clear that he is up to his elbows in that scandal and struggling to keep his head above the murky water. Ken Cuccinelli is a career politician who has made his way in the world by pandering to the worst and most extreme elements of the Republican Party of Virginia. Now he's trying to hide his record and lie about his policy positions.
