Republican Party support for Ken Cuccinelli crumbling
The Cuccinelli campaign has been incompetent, but Cuccinelli bears a large amount of the responsibility himself. His refusal to resign from the Attorney General's office--as is Virginia tradition--hobbled his fundraising efforts and highlighted his many conflicts of interest when the Star Scientific and Chefgate scandals broke. His decision to completely identify with the Tea Party meant that the Tea Party shutdown of the federal government dragged him under. Ken Cuccinelli once said that we needed an entire senate of Ted Cruzes, but Cruz himself threw Cuccinelli under the bus with his ill-timed government shutdown. Angry voters will take their anti-Tea Party feelings out on Ken Cuccinelli three weeks from now, while Cruz doesn't face re-election until 2018.
