ProgressVA today released a new video highlighting the record Gov. McDonnell is hoping Virginians (and Mitt Romney’s VP selection committee) will forget. Virginians are intimately familiar with his support for extreme, out-of-touch social legislation and failure to adequately invest in public education and transportation solutions. As McDonnell attempts to whitewash his record and reclaim his struggling VP bid with a $400,000 tv ad blitz, ProgressVA is setting the record straight.
“Bob McDonnell may think he can buy his way back into Virginians’ good graces, but we don’t fool that easily,” said ProgressVA Executive Director Anna Scholl. “Virginians can’t forget Bob McDonnell’s support for forced, mandatory ultrasounds, his repeal of common sense public safety protections, his lack of adequate investment in public education, and his absolute failure to address our transportation crisis.”
