This November 8th, the entire Virginia legislature is up for election and Virginians are faced with a distinct choice between two different visions for the future of the Commonwealth. Attorney General Cuccinelli articulated that point this week when he wrote to supporters that the State Senate has "done all that is in their power to oppose and undermine the work I promised I would do during my campaign in 2009," and the "Senate is where conservative legislation goes to die."
The Progressive Point: Elections matter. This November, Virginia voters have a choice between preserving a pro-family majority in the State Senate or electing radical conservatives that will advance a far-right Tea Party agenda. A Cuccinelli/McDonnell takeover of the State Senate means an unstoppable conservative agenda that will cater to wealthy donors while devastating our schools, our environment, and investment in our economic future. Virginians deserve leaders who will put families first and fight for our future. On November 8th, occupy the polls.
Tweet it: Occupy the polls. November 8th, Virginia must reject the anti-family Cuccinelli/McDonnell agenda. http://bit.ly/o0VGXD via @ProgressVA
