Huckabee Endorses Cuccinelli
Former Arkansas governor and Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee endorsed state Sen. Ken Cuccinelli II (R-Fairfax) in his race for the Republican nomination for attorney general this year.
"Ken Cuccinelli is a rare breed of leader who boldly stands up for conservative principles,'' Huckabee wrote in an email. "I would have been honored to have served alongside a leader like Ken."
Huckabee mentioned that Cuccinelli is "pro-life" and drafted the Senate parental consent law, which passed in 2003, supports the Second Amendment and will fight for lower taxes and to slow down the growth of government.
"Virginia is blessed to have such a capable and proven leader like Ken,'' Huckabee wrote. "I am committed to doing what I can to help make sure the people of Virginia have Ken as their next attorney general."
Cuccinelli faces John Brownlee, the former top prosecutor for Virginia's western district, and David M. Foster, former chairman of the Arlington County School Board.
