Cuccinelli Claims He Has Edge in AG Race

Tim Craig

The race for the GOP nomination for Attorney General is underway because local county and city committees have begun holding mass meetings to determine their nominees to the state convention in late May.

The county-by-county contest can be maddening for journalists and political observers to follow, but Sen. Ken Cuccinelli (R-Fairfax) claims he has jumped into an early lead in the hunt for delegates.

In an email to supporters, Cuccinelli said he is almost running even with one of his rivals for the nomination, Dave Foster, in Alexandria. In Henry County, Cuccinelli said he and another GOP candidate for Attorney General, John Brownlee, are also locked in a close fight for delegates.

In Bath County, Cuccinelli said he has secured 80 percent of the delegates. He also claims an 80 percent showing in Waynesboro. In Lancaster County, Cuccinelli said "only two delegates of over 30 are committed to any other candidate."
