McAuliffe And Cuccinelli Renew War Of Words For Last Debate

The two main contenders in Virginia’s contest for Governor faced off Thursday night in Blacksburg. Democrat Terry McAuliffe and Republican Ken Cuccinelli found many things on which they disagree. McAuliffe supports expanding Virginia’s Medicaid rolls, while Cuccinelli does not. McAuliffe accused Cuccinelli of bullying the State Board of Health before it approved new standards for abortion clinics. Cuccinelli says McAuliffe has mischaracterized his actions and he knows it. The event’s organizers did not invite Libertarian Robert Sarvis. The final debate of the 2013 campaign was sponsored by WDBJ -7 in Roanoke and Virginia Tech.
