Democrats Hit McDonnell Over Giuliani
The Virginia Democratic Party released a video today responding to Attorney General Robert F. McDonnell's decision to highlight an endorsement from former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R).
In the video, the state party attempts to connect McDonnell to Giuliani's speech at the Republican National Convention in which he mocks President-elect Barack Obama for being a community organizer.
At this early stage of the governor's race, Virginia Democrats still view Obama, who carried the state with nearly 53 percent of the vote, as an asset. McDonnell is hoping that Giuliani and other national Republicans can help him counteract Obama by reaching out to suburban voters. But Democrats believe Giuliani, who moved to the right last year when he ran for the GOP nomination for president, now appeals to only a very small pool of Virginia voters.
