McDonnell Criticizes Obama

Anita Kumar

As Sen. Barack Obama spent his second straight day in Virginia, Attorney General Robert F. McDonnell (R) blasted the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee for his lack of experience.

"Senator Obama is clearly an historic figure and an articulate spokesman for his party but he is perhaps the most inexperienced person to run for president of the United States,'' he said.

McDonnell, who will run for governor next year, told reporters that Obama is "wrong" for Virginia on the key issues of national security, taxes and spending and energy.

McDonnell said Obama's two-day swing proves that Virginia is a "hotly contested state" this year.

"The old Dominion, the mother of presidents, is competitve,'' he said. "We're delighted to have this debate with Senator Obama now here on Virginia soil."

McDonnell will attend the Republican National Convention next month in support of Sen. John McCain, the presumptive Republican nominee.

"John McCain is really the only candidate with the experience, judgement and character to lead" the United States, he said.

Rumor has it that former republican candidate Charlie Hall is sending issue points to the Keith Fimian campaign. Jody and Bruce Bennett are already on board to go after the democrats in the 11th CD. Things are going to get ugly.
