GOP star Cuccinelli to campaign in New Jersey, Oklahoma
You don't have to take our word for it that Virginia Attorney Gen. Ken Cuccinelli (R) is a rising star in conservative circles nationwide.
Take the word of the Americans for Prosperity chapter in New Jersey, where Cuccinelli is the keynote speaker at a big weekend event.
"Rising Conservative Star, Leading Opponent of Obamacare Will Headline Rally of Conservative Activists," the group writes in the headline of a statement announcing the Saturday event.
The group says their "Remember November" event will be the largest pre-election gathering of conservatives in the tri-state area. Cuccinelli will attend, fresh off his latest round of TV appearances following Monday's hearing in his lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the federal health care law.
"Attorney General Cuccinelli is a remarkable spokesperson and advocate for conservative values and our founding principles, and is a stalwart defender of the constitution," said AFP New Jersey state director Steve Lonegan.
It's not uncommon for governors to travel around the country campaigning for one another. But Cuccinelli has been doing an unusual amount of traveling for a guy who doesn't hold the top job.
He's already made campaign stops for Republican attorneys general in Iowa and Alabama and headlined a fundraiser for Florida Senate candidate Marco Rubio in April. Monday, he'll be in Olkahoma City to campaign for Republican attorney general candidate Scott Pruitt.
He'll also be making stops for congressional candidates in Virginia in coming days.
