Former Republican Delegate Says GOP Ticket Too Extreme

Former Republican Delegate Says GOP Ticket Too Extreme

The GOP ticket of Cuccinelli, Jackson and Obenshain is not sitting well with a former Republican lawmaker.  Katherine Waddell says she’s a life-long Republican.  But Waddell says she eventually had to run as an independent because she supports women’s reproductive rights.  Waddell says the ticket is too extreme.  Waddell was part of a Monday morning conference call with former Republican Delegate Vince Callahan of Northern Virginia.  Meanwhile, the GOP ticket will be on a statewide tour that will bring them to the local GOP headquarters in Albemarle Square at 10:30 tomorrow morning.
