STATEMENT ON ATTORNEY GENERAL KEN CUCCINELLI AS REPUBLICAN NOMINEE FOR GOVERNOR
Departure of Lt. Governor Bill Bolling from race clears way for zealously anti-choice candidate Cuccinelli
With Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling’s announcement today that he will drop out of the 2013 race for Virginia’s next governor, the way has effectively been cleared for extremely anti-choice Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli to secure the Republican nomination.
Tarina Keene, executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia, released the following statement:
"Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli has spent his career in politics attacking women’s rights, working to restrict access to essential reproductive health care, and putting his political ideology before the lives of Virginia women. Make no mistake: if elected governor, Ken Cuccinelli will continue the war on women in Virginia – this time from the highest office in the Commonwealth.
We cannot and will not allow this to happen. NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia will spend the next eleven months making sure that every Virginian knows exactly what’s at stake in this election, and exactly how Cuccinelli’s anti-choice policies will hurt her and her family.”
