In a move that will shock no one, the NRA is planning on spending $500,000 on ads attacking Terry McAuliffe. The Big Mac mentioned gun control during his debate on Wednesday so they have good reason to try and take him out at the ballot box.
I anticipate more conservative groups to start jumping in with big last minute spending spree. Cuccinelli is a tea party hero and to see him lose to a very weak candidate like McAuliffe just one year after Obama carried Virginia in his reelection would be a mess. That would really hit the narrative that when the GOP runs proud conservatives they win. If Cuccinelli is not conservative enough for you, who is?
So Virginia get ready for more ads. I can already hear the champagne bottles popping at TV and radio stations in Richmond and Virginia Beach.
