Virginia News Headlines: Tuesday Morning


Here are a few Virginia and national news headlines, political and otherwise, for Tuesday, October 29. One week until Election Day in Virginia – do you know where and when you’re voting? can you remind all the people you know to join you in voting (for Terry McAuliffe, Ralph Northam, Mark Herring, and their Democratic House of Delegates candidate) on November 5? Thanks. Finally, check out the video of Ken Cuccinelli calling embryonic stem cells the “dead bodies of those children.”

*U.S. weighs ending spying on allied heads of state

*Obama Admin: Half Of Young Americans Could Buy Insurance For $50 Or Less

*Rand Paul Plagiarized Speech From Wikipedia, Rachel Maddow Says

*McAuliffe opens up double-digit lead over Cuccinelli in Virginia governor’s race (“Cuccinelli’s image has deteriorated consistently during the campaign, damaged by not only perceptions of his conservatism but also a backlash against the recent partial shutdown of the federal government, for which a majority of voters blame Republicans in Congress.”)

*Race for Virginia attorney general is in a near dead heat, poll finds (We have GOT to win this one – everybody get the word out about how extreme Mark Obenshain is, how he’s said he and Ken Cuccinelli are “two peas in a pod” philosophically, etc.)

*As election clock winds down, Va. rivals enlist big names for late push (Yeah, Cooch gets extremist/lunatic Rand Paul to come in and talk about how a woman’s right to choose leads to “eugenics.” Oh, and also plagiarizes the Wikipedia entry on “Gattaca.” LOL)

*President Obama to hit the trail Sunday with McAuliffe in Virginia governor’s race

*Virginia Latinos plunge into politics (And man are they welcome or what?!? Bienvenidos a los Latino-Americanos!)

*McAuliffe continues torrid fundraising pace in gov. race (“The Democrat raised $8.1 million Oct. 1-23. The GOP’s Cuccinelli has raised $2.9 million in the same period.”)

*McAuliffe’s cash edge endures as election nears

*Polls, money favor McAuliffe

*Ken Cuccinelli, Rand Paul visit Liberty University (What a joke, on all levels.)

*In NoVa, veteran GOP delegate Rust fights for his seat as Democrats sense opportunity (It’s long past time to “get the Rust out.” Go Boysko!)

*Businessmen Austin, Medlin vie for 19th District

*Signs of voter fatigue in Chesapeake, bellwether of Hampton Roads (The best cure for “fatigue?” Get out and volunteer…and vote of course!)

*Former SEAL, former priest vie for Virginia Beach’s 85th House seat

*D.C. area forecast: Getting warmer for sure; will showers wait ’til after Halloween?
