McDonnell Airs New Ad on Cap-and-Trade
Republican Bob McDonnell began airing a new ad today in Roanoke and Southwest featuring an official from MeadWestvaco talking about the impact of the so-called cap and trade bill.
The ad says that Deeds supports the federal climate change legislation, though he has said in recent appearances that he is opposed.
Meadwest, a paper and packaging company, has a plant in Deeds's state senator district. The company has donated $15,000 to McDonnell and John Luke, its chairman, has given $10,000.
Announcer: Creigh Deeds called for a Washington-style Cap and Trade energy tax putting jobs in his state senate district at risk.
Mark George, Mill Manager, MeadWestvaco: Covington is a nice town in the Alleghany Highlands. If the mill were to close this would virtually be a ghost town. Cap and Trade policies will kill Virginia jobs. What people don't understand is the impact it's going to have on the working families in this country. This energy tax can kill 1400 jobs at this company. Bob McDonnell is against Cap and Trade policies because he understands what it would do to the families in the Highlands.
