Former Congressman Endorses McAuliffe

Anita Kumar

Former U.S. Rep. Owen Pickett (D-Va.) endorsed Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe today.

Pickett, who represented the Hampton Roads area from 1987 to 2001 and has been an advocate for the region's military installations, cited McAuliffe's decades of experience creating jobs and turning around businesses.

"Terry McAuliffe has the dynamic leadership qualities and visionary problem solving ability that Virginia needs today to deal with the serious economic challenges confronting us, " Pickett said. "Whether it's his commitment to keeping the nuclear carriers in Norfolk or developing Virginia's green industry, Terry will bring the innovative ideas that we need in Richmond to create and keep good jobs here in the Commonwealth."

Could you site definitive examples that McAulliffe actually helped Va.? He has much experience at defrauding investors though. Just ask the thousands of Global Crossing investors who lost out due to his inside investment in the company, of which he got out of just before the company collapsed. He also supported Hillary Clinton for President to the bitter end.
