UPDATED: Cuccinelli becomes Fox News' go-to attorney general
Between an early win in his lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the federal health-care law and his legal opinion authorizing law enforcement officers to inquire about immigration status, Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli has become Fox News' favorite guest of the news cycle.
Cuccinelli appeared on Tuesday morning's "Fox and Friends." He's scheduled for an appearance this afternoon with anchor Megyn Kelly. And Greta Van Susteren traveled to Richmond yesterday to tape an interview with the controversial attorney general on the steps of the Virginia Capitol, and then reserved more than 16 full minutes of her primetime show for its airing. You can watch the two-part interview here.
The Fox-love won't improve Cuccinelli's woeful reputation on the left but will help continue to boost his national profile on the right.
UPDATE 1:40 p.m. Brian Gottstein with Cuccinelli's office has been in touch to note the attorney general will also appear on the CBS Evening News this evening, has interviewed with NPR and CBC Radio News and will likely be appearing soon on MSNBC and PBS. "He's not just going on Fox," Gottstein said. "Fox is just very interested in these stories and has followed them from the beginning."
