Senate majority leader practices politics of personal destruction
Topic - Garren Shipley
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Texas Gov. Rick Perry have failed to qualify for Virginia's March 6 Republican primary, a development that adds to the challenges faced by the recent frontrunner in the GOP presidential race.
Virginia voters are equally divided on whether George Allen or Tim Kaine should be their next U.S. senator, as the two former governors anticipate going head to head in a closely watched race next year.
"Color me surprised that Terry McAuliffe is involved with what looks like a highly questionable decision involving money and politics," said Garren Shipley, a spokesman for the Republican Party of Virginia. "Whether it's renting out the Lincoln Bedroom, cashing in on Global Crossing as the company tanked, or investing in a program state officials worried was a visa-for-sale scheme, Terry McAuliffe continues to give Virginians every reason to be skeptical of his actions."
"It is no secret that E.W. Jackson has deeply held Christian conservative beliefs," Republican Party of Virginia spokesman Garren Shipley said in a statement to Politico. "But the race for lieutenant governor will be fought on economic ground as opposed to social policy. In the weeks and months ahead, Jackson will focus on ideas that produce more quality jobs for Virginians and make life easier for families and workers."
