The Richmond Times Dispatch refused to endorse anyone for Governor. Seen as the most influential paper in Virginia the non-endorsement reflects a great deal of disappointment in the state over the choice, as evident by the fact that they took swipes at all three candidates.
While it is never good to see bad things written about yourself in the paper this is particularly bad for Ken Cuccinelli. Remember the paper did endorse Jerry Kilgore in 2005, Bob McDonnell in 2009 and George Allen in 2012. So if they would support those very conservative candidates their inability to back Cuccinelli can’t be seen as good news for the campaign.
