Ted Cruz will be speaking at Family Foundation fundraising dinner on Saturday. Guess who else will be at the event being held in Richmond? Ken Cuccinelli!!
The Cuccinelli campaign says it is not a campaign event. Gee, I wonder why?
Maybe because Cruz is seen as one, if not, they leading Republican in the government shutdown. Seeing Cuccinelli budding up to that guy might alienate some of the many government employees in Northern Virginia. Of course one problem for Cuccinelli is that Cruz has called it a campaign event.
You can also guess how McAuliffe will react to this news. The idea of Cuccinelli being publicly linked to such a political lightening rod is a nice gift to help rally the Democratic base.
