The following press release is from AG Mark Herring’s campaign, about Republican AG nominee Jason Miyares campaigning with “the likes of right-wing extremist and Trump appointee Ken Cuccinelli,” who “abused the Virginia Attorney General’s office to fight against LGBTQ+ rights and tried to shut down women’s health clinics, and who just this weekend, hosted the Virginia GOP’s second ‘Election Integrity’ event.”  The bottom line is that the GOP(Q) has morphed into an insurrectionist, extremist party that is completely unfit to govern, whether here in Virginia or anywhere, really.

Miyares Campaigned with Cuccinelli Just Days Before Cuccinelli Headlined Second Virginia “Big Lie” Event

Not only has Miyares continued to ignore calls to denounce Trump’s Big Lie, but he continued to campaign with the likes of right-wing extremist and Trump appointee Ken Cuccinelli. Cuccinelli abused the Virginia Attorney General’s office to fight against LGBTQ+ rights and tried to shut down women’s health clinics, and who just this weekend, hosted the Virginia GOP’s second “Election Integrity” event

If Jason Miyares is not beholden to Donald Trump’s dangerous agenda, why won’t he denounce these dangerous events, those who attend them, and stop spreading the dangerous conspiracy theories that led to the deadly insurrection on January 6th?

“Last November, Virginians overwhelmingly rejected Donald Trump — and since then every court in the land has rejected his Big Lie. Jason Miyares continues to be silent on where he stands on the issue, and is cozying up to Trump loyalists who are perpetuating the Big Lie in Virginia.” said Madia Coleman, Communications Director for Mark Herring’s re-election. “We are calling on Jason Miyares, once again, to denounce the Big Lie and condemn these misleading, voter suppression ‘election integrity’ events.”
