The State of the race in Virginia
Normally at Unlikely Voter I’ll look at individual polls, synthesize them into the trend, and go from there. But I’ve been behind, so we’re just going to recap all the recent polling in Virginia and go from there.
Long story short, Terry McAuliffe is ahead, and looks to be the beneficiary of trends entirely out of control of either himself or of Ken Cuccinelli.

…Erm, where is the rest of Terry McAuliffe’s dirty Joseph Caramadre money?
Meanwhile, back at the ranch… Former DNC Chairman Terry McAuliffe, the current Democratic nominee for Governor of Virginia, chose not disclose his investment into an insurance scheme run by a businessman [Joseph Caramadre] who was stealing the identities of terminally ill patients on his Virginia Board of Elections Statement of Economic Interest during his 2009 run for Governor.

Did Terry McAuliffe allow GreenTech to keep on fundraising, using his name?
Man, the Washington Post is really setting itself up for some severe criticism when they finally end up endorsing Terry McAuliffe. It’s like they’re providing us with all the information we need to discredit said endorsement ahead of time: …Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe (D), is listed in a recent confidential memorandum to prospective investors as GreenTech Automotive’s “chairman emeritus.” The 70-page document includes photographs | Read More »
The Washington Post has a real problem with… Terry McAuliffe’s performance at the NVTC.
This is a remarkably vicious article from the Washington Post… which is to say, it only attacked the Republican candidate for Virginia governor once and even then waited until about the sixteenth paragraph to do it. Apparently, the Post did not like Terry McAuliffe’s performance at the Northern Virginia Technology Council, particularly when compared to Ken Cuccinelli’s; and that disapproval seems to have slopped over | Read More »
The Battle to be Virginia’s Next Governor
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson is joined by Aaron Blake to discuss the Republican fight in Congress to defund Obamacare in the CR, if the debt ceiling fight may be a better avenue for a standoff and the knock-down drag out battle for the governor’s mansion in Virginia.

Quinnipac predicts unprecedented Libertarian surge in Virginia governor’s race!
Well, that would have to be the alternative explanation to what’s apparently happening, which is that the governor’s race is tightening in Virginia again. Cuccinelli/McAuliffe went from 42/48 in August’s Q-Poll to 41/44 now. The poll indicates McAuliffe, the former chairman of the Democratic National Committee, at 44% among likely commonwealth voters, with Cuccinelli at 41%. The three point margin for McAuliffe, who lost a | Read More »
Team McAuliffe Compares Ken Cuccinelli to George Wallace
Outraged over an entrepreneurial business PAC endorsing Ken Cuccinelli, Terry McAuliffe’s campaign trotted out Virginia Senate Minority Leader to compare Ken Cuccinelli to former Governor of Alabama and racist Democrat George Wallace. “For them to endorse a guy with his views, a supposedly enlightened group of people — science-oriented — would have been the same as in the 1960s, the NAACP supporting George Wallace,” Saslaw | Read More »
Here we go again, with PPP in Virginia
Here we go again with Public Policy Polling. They did a poll for the League of Conservation Voters on the 2013 race for Governor in Virginia, and the electorate predicted by PPP is a strange one.
You see, it doesn’t look like Virginia.

Another GOP Strategist Working Against the GOP
Ken Cuccinelli is leading an aggressive, populist, small government campaign. His latest television ad hits squarely on the theme of big companies hiring lobbyists and consultants in a bipartisan fashion and getting both sides to carve out loopholes and benefits for those big companies. The little guy is left paying for those loopholes in his taxes. The consultants in the GOP, who’ve been profiting heavily | Read More »
The Importance of Virginia
Yesterday, the AFL-CIO declared it was going all in in Virginia to get Terry McAuliffe elected. The AFL-CIO has massive amounts of money and, should McAuliffe win, as Jim Geraghty, I, and others have noted, the media and liberal Republicans will claim conservatives cannot get elected. Ken Cuccinelli, as the Attorney General of Virginia, was the first State AG to go to court opposing Obamacare. | Read More »
Washington Post buries its allegation that Terry McAuliffe’s Greentech lied to VEDP.
There’s a good bit here of interest in this surprisingly hostile Washington Post article on Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe* and his horrible, awful, no good kiddie electric car company GreenTech, but one particular bit jumps out: VEDP [Virginia Economic Development Partnership] officials were also uneasy about GreenTech’s heavy reliance on EB-5 financing. A top GreenTech executive told the VEDP that each year, 20,000 Chinese | Read More »
Terry McAuliffe is Fundraising Off RedState & Abortion Barbie
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA. Terry McAuliffe just sent out a fundraising email. He clearly does not like RedState readers or me. Sounds like he is jealous of what we did for Ken Cuccinelli. Let me provide you the text: Do you recognize the name Erick Erickson? I wouldn’t be surprised if your answer is “no.” He’s an ultra-conservative blogger who | Read More »
Some time around 11:30 a.m. we reached the $10,000.00 goal from around 200 donors for Ken Cuccinelli. I’m curious to see how much we can raise. Before sunset we crossed $15,000.00. Please join me in giving Ken Cuccinelli a contribution. This is the most important race across the country this year. He needs our help. Just today there is another story about Terry McAuliffe’s dealings | Read More »
People, We Can Do Better
We used to be able to raise money quickly for candidates we support. Ken Cuccinelli is a candidate we support. He’s running for Governor of Virginia. Bobby Jindal and I both agree this is the most important political race in the country this year. Can you help RedState? Show the world again just how RedState readers support conservatives. Go here now. Give what you can. | Read More »
