Great stuff, check out the video below, and the press release from the Mark Herring for Attorney General campaign on the "flip."
Today, the Mark Herring for Attorney General campaign released its first television ad of the general election campaign. Virginians across the Commonwealth will begin seeing the 30-second spot the weekend of September 27.

“I’m proud to broadcast my message of taking the politics out of the Attorney General’s office and putting the law first,” said Democratic candidate for Attorney General Mark Herring. “During the last four years, the Attorney General’s office has been used to advance an extreme agenda and I think Virginians are tired of it. As a state Senator, I’ve taken a pragmatic, results-oriented approach to protecting Virginians and their families and I will continue that approach as Virginia’s next Attorney General.”
In the ad, Herring puts his focus on family and pragmatic solutions to the problems Virginia families face. The ad highlights Herring’s work to pass the bipartisan transportation bill to get folks home with their families quicker, and sponsoring legislation that protects seniors from financial scams.
The ad also focuses on Herring’s proposal to support service members, veterans and their families as Attorney General. Herring’s plan can be found on his website:www.HerringForAG.com/Veterans
Tea Party Republican Mark Obenshain has fought against measures to improve Virginia’s transportation infrastructure. In a defining moment during this year’s General Assembly session, Herring joined Republicans and Democrats, including Governor Bob McDonnell, Lt. Governor Bill Bolling, Terry McAuliffe and the Speaker of the House in supporting the bipartisan compromise bill on transportation, while Mark Obenshain opposed the legislation.
This legislation was so critical to business that the statewide business group Virginia FREEsaid that it was “the most important business vote in a generation,” and used just this one vote in their yearly legislative scorecard.
