    President Barack Obama will campaign for Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe this weekend, giving a late boost to McAuliffe as he seeks to energize core Democratic voters in an off-year governor’s race, Democratic sources told POLITICO. Obama is set to appear at a Sunday afternoon get-out-the-vote rally in Northern Virginia. It will be the president’s first campaign appearance for McAuliffe, the former chairman of the Democratic National Committee. McAuliffe’s campaign has been working to activate many of the same voters who carried Virginia for Obama in 2008 and 2012: young people, independent women and African American, Latino and Asian American...

    Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., on Thursday urged Virginia Republicans supporting Robert C. Sarvis, the Libertarian candidate for governor, to come home to the GOP and vote for Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, the party’s nominee. “I consider myself to be a libertarian conservative, a libertarian Republican,” Paul said in a phone interview Thursday. “A lot of things (Cuccinelli) talks about are free-market, limited-government, leave-me-alone government. I think there is a lot to like there. “What I’m excited about in Ken Cuccinelli is that he is smart, he is articulate, and he has a keen sense of justice,” Paul said. Cuccinelli’s attempt...

    At first glance, the race for governor of Virginia may look like a contest between a rock-ribbed conservative Republican and a dyed-in-the-wool liberal Democrat, but there’s more at stake than that. Ken Cuccinelli is a small-government conservative, and his Democratic opponent, Terry McAuliffe, has never seen a problem that he thinks couldn’t be solved by raising taxes and feeding the beast. There’s much about Mr. Cuccinelli that should appeal to Northern Virginia moderates of both parties. Mr. Cuccinelli sees a bigger and more intrusive government as a threat to basic civil liberties, a view shared by growing numbers of conservatives,...

    October 11, 2013 The Honorable Kenneth Cuccinelli, II 10560 Main Street, Suite 218 Fairfax, VA 22030 Dear Ken, We have a federal government that is out of control, spends too much, borrows too much, taxes too much and continues to infringe on the constitution and states' rights. This current administration has even gone so far as to sue states they disagree with. That is why Virginia needs a governor who is willing to stand up to the politicians of both parties in Washington and tell them, "Enough is Enough. "As someone who has watched you in action as both a...

    It’s going to be illuminating to see whether there is any backlash in New Jersey against news that Mayor Bloomberg of New York is scrambling to put an emergency $1 million into the floundering campaign of Mayor Cory Booker to succeed Senator Lautenberg. This news was injected Sunday by Michael Barbaro of the New York Times into a dispatch that ran on page one under the headline “Anxious Allies Aiding Booker In Senate Bid.” Mr. Bloomberg tried something similar in Colorado the other day, and Rocky Mountain voters promptly cashiered his two candidates out of the state’s Senate.

    Back in June, Equality Virginia Advocates announced our statewide endorsements. With Terry McAuliffe as Governor, Ralph Northam as Lieutenant Governor, Mark Herring as Attorney General, and LGBT-friendly leaders in the House of Delegates, we can keep the pendulum moving toward equality. Time is running out to make sure that the right leaders get elected to the House of Delegates. The stakes are high: this election could mean the difference of having Delegates who support the LGBT community or having discriminatory and backwards-looking Delegates who could care less about equality. Who would you rather see win the vote? Turnout is key...

    Virginia gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli II fired up a crowd of several hundred fellow Republicans and tea party members Tuesday with plenty of rousing talk about keeping the federal government at bay and fighting to maintain the commonwealth’s tradition of limited government. The Virginia attorney general, joined by nationally syndicated talk show host Mark Levin, appeared at a rally in Sterling and marked Constitution Day by boasting of his legal challenges to President Obama’s health-care overhaul and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as a way of fighting for limited government. “Get government out of the way, and you will watch...
