Cuccinelli Campaign Says National GOP Abandoned Them: ‘We Were on Our Own’
The GOP establishment is making a serious mistake by under estimating the power of the TEA Party to take control of the party.
Check it out:
A campaign strategist for Republican Virginia gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli said that the national GOP abandoned the campaign in its final days.
At the end of the race, Cuccinelli was closing in on Democrat Terry McAuliffe, who eked out a two-point victory on Tuesday despite exit polls that showed McAuliffe was up by seven points.
According to the Washington Post, Chris La Civita said that financial support from national Republican sources dried up on October 1.
“There are a lot of questions people are going to be asking and that is, was leaving Cuccinelli alone in the first week of October, a smart move?” La Civita said after Cuccinelli’s concession speech, according to the Post. “We were on our own. Just look at the volume [of ads].”
