From the Mark Herring for AG campaign:
ATTORNEY GENERAL HERRING RELEASES NEW AD ATTACKING OPPONENT JASON MIYARES FOR TAKING HALF A MILLION DOLLARS FROM GROUP THAT FINANCED JAN. 6 INSURRECTION
LEESBURG, Va – Today, Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring is out with a new ad after his Republican opponent Jason Miyares accepted $500,000 from the Republican Attorneys General Association (RAGA), a group that helped ignite the January 6th insurrection.
Prior to the insurrection, RAGA’s policy arm — the Rule of Law Defense Fund (RLDF) — paid for a robocall promoting the rally, encouraging “patriots” to march to the Capitol building to “stop the steal.” In addition to the robocall, Republican Attorneys General bear responsibility for spreading Trump’s Big Lie and trying to overturn the results of the election.
The ad concludes, “For the January 6 planners, Jason Miyares is the plan.” Virginians deserve better than Jason Miyares and those who support Trump’s Big Lie.
See the transcript below:

And Jason Miyares is in lockstep with their agenda.\. The threat is real. Five police officers died. For the January 6 planners, Jason Miyares is the plan. I’m Mark Herring, candidate for attorney general, and I sponsored this ad.
