RICHMOND, VA — On the heels of Bob McDonnell’s “Pick Me” for V.P. tour across the Commonwealth Chairman Brian Moran released the following statement:
“Bob McDonnell has spent the last week campaigning across the state as part of his vain attempt to improve his ratings among Virginians and campaign for the GOP vice presidential nomination.
“People across Virginia and the nation have already seen that when Republicans are put in charge, they promote the same familiar and troubling economic scheme: more budget-busting tax cuts for the wealthy; fewer rules for Wall Street–the same formula that benefited a few, but crashed our economy and punished the middle class. McDonnell and Romney also want to roll back the clock on women’s health, with McDonnell going so far as to push extreme measures like an invasive mandatory ultrasound law.
“The fact is that President Obama’s leadership has helped turn things around here in Virginia and across the country. While there’s still more work to do, the president is the only candidate who will continue investing in education, infrastructure and middle class families to keep us moving forward.”###
