Sen. Herring: “Cuccinelli’s Extreme Statements Are a Window Into His Values”


From Sen. Mark Herring; I couldn’t agree more.

Leesburg – Democratic candidate for Attorney General State Senator Mark Herring (Loudoun & Fairfax) issued the following statement today in response to the release of excerpts from Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli’s forthcoming book:

“Ken Cuccinelli’s extreme statements are a window into his values. Cuccinelli’s extreme ideology has been evident during his time as Attorney General, but attacking the millions of Americans who rely on Social Security and Medicare provides new insight into just how out of touch he truly is.

“The fact that Ken Cuccinelli considers these programs that millions of seniors rely on to be government  ‘goodies’ should be alarming to every Virginian.  Virginia cannot continue to move forward with Ken Cuccinelli.”

UPDATE: Virginia House Democrats weigh in.

*”Delegate Herring speaking at press conference denouncing Cuccinelli’s ‘goodies’ comments”

*”Senator McEachin- Cuccinelli’s comments are an attack on people of faith”

*”@deltoscano – Cuccinelli’s on comments on Medicare and Social Security are ‘disturbing'”

*”@deltoscano – Need to focus on creating jobs and growing the middle class”

*”Senator Favola – Cuccinelli’s comments are hurtful. 1000s of SS and Medicare recipients are veterans”
