New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie cruised to re-election Tuesday, giving Republicans a bright spot in an off-year election, while Terry McAuliffe eked out an unexpectedly close win against Kenneth T. Cuccinelli II in the race for Virginia governor.
Terry McAuliffe narrowly edged Kenneth T. Cuccinelli II in the surprisingly close race for Virginia governor Tuesday, delivering a Democratic victory and a repudiation of Republicans who just four years ago swept the top three statewide races.
After record millions spent on TV advertising in Virginia's governor race, Republican Kenneth T. Cuccinelli II finds himself in the unenviable position of knowing there's a side to him voters haven't experienced.
Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli is reaching out to women voters with his first television campaign ad for governor, starring his wife, Teiro.
"I did not like politics. I never liked politics — and sometimes I still don't," his wife, Teiro, told The Washington Times in a weekend interview.
"My husband Ken has spent his life standing up for the vulnerable and those in need," she said in the ad, as quoted by Politico. "He's worked the night shift at a homeless shelter, spent his college days leading efforts to prevent sexual assaults and represented those suffering from mental illness. As attorney general, Ken fought to find and prosecute child predators and human traffickers."
