Cuccinelli Proposes Seven Additional Debates

Republican nominee for Governor Ken Cuccinelli says he wants to debate Democrat Terry McAuliffe in seven additional venues this year. Cuccinelli has suggested several places for a debate with McAuliffe, including one here in the Fifth Congressional District. He’s proposing a debate in Danville which would be sponsored by UVA’s Sorenson Institute. His other suggestions include two debates in Tidewater and one apiece in Roanoke, Southwest Virginia, the Richmond area, and a rural community that McAuliffe would choose. Cuccinelli (pictured) criticized McAuliffe’s approach to government during weekend campaign stops in Culpeper, Goochland and Hanover. McAuliffe and Cuccinelli have already agreed to a pair of debates. The first will be during a Virginia Bar Association meeting this Saturday at the Homestead in Bath County, and the other will be hosted by the Fairfax Chamber of Commerce this September.
