Democratic Attorney General nominee Steve Shannon has finally responded to Ken Cuccinelli’s call for special session and wonders why Ken Cuccinelli couldn’t support a bill that didn’t even get out of a House subcommittee.

Today, the Republican Liberty Caucus of Virginia endorsed Ken Cuccinelli for Attorney General for his record and commitment to reduce the size of government, as well as fighting to defend our personal liberties.
RLC-Virginia Chairman Bert Mueller said in a statement that,
“Small government and personal liberty advocates have been increasingly frustrated with the Republican Party, contributing to the Party’s weakening presence in the Commonwealth. Ken Cuccinelli is a breath of fresh air for the cause of liberty and personal responsibility.”
“In the lead up to what promises to be a spirited and competitive Virginia GOP convention in Richmond next month — and with the 2005 Attorney General race being decided by just a few hundred votes — grassroots activists who favor Constitutionally limited government are poised to advance our cause and intend to make a difference in Virginia’s Attorney General race.”
This is good news and a great endorsement for Cuccinelli, as the RLC-Virginia is a strong network of volunteer grassroots activists dedicated to the principles of liberty, limited government, and free enterprise within the Republican party.
