Via email from the Cuccinelli campaign comes word of Ron Paul’s endorsement:
Ken Cuccinelli has always stood for smaller government and limited government, he has consistently and unapologetically worked with the Liberty movement in Virginia. His stand against ObamaCare shows he is willing to stand up toWashington’s continued abuses on our individual liberties. I am proud to endorse to Ken for Governor of Virginia.
At the moment, then, this is clearly Terry McAuliffe’s race and, absent some kind of major story that turns things around for Cuccinelli soon, it’s going to be difficult for him to keep the Governor’s mansion in Republican hands in November.
Doug, as far as I can tell, is content with anyone other than Cuccinelli winning next month.
This blogger couldn’t oppose McAuliffe much more without exceeding the bounds of good taste:
.@baseballcrank Don’t you make fun of the Virginia Democrat candidate, who is Hillary Clinton’s chamber pot! That’s an important pot to be!

It’s baffling, given Cuccineeli’s grasp of actual policy issues and support of real Virginians, why anybody would support McAuliffe at all:
You know I have been hearing from folks about their interest in my position on freedom to farm, something I’m quite familiar with, and of course I’m a strong property rights person. I just wanted to let you all know, that I believe traditional pasture-based farms and the local economies they can help are part of a brighter future for Virginia—both for our people and the environment. I support local farmers being freed to process and sell their farm products locally – marked appropriately so consumers know what they are buying.

McAuliffe brings the buffoonery of a Chris Farley flick,
but none of the guffaws.
