Ken Cuccinelli For Governor
Attorney General of Virginia, 2013 Republican nominee for governor
Ken Cuccinelli, 2013 Republican nominee for governor, was sworn in as Virginia’s Attorney General on January 16, 2010. As Attorney General, he has become best known for his efforts to preserve liberty and defend the US Constitution. Prior to assuming this role, he was a leading conservative member of the Virginia Senate from 2002 until 2010. His experience as a small business owner and an attorney had uniquely prepared him for his role in the General Assembly. As a state senator, Ken led the fight to defend constitutional rights, stop tax increases, protect life and families, and keep Virginia a low-regulation and pro-free market state. But perhaps what is most remarkable about Ken Cuccinelli is the work he has done on behalf of regular Virginians, particularly the most vulnerable in society. Most of the causes he is still involved in today—from sexual assault awareness to mental health reform—were undertaken long before Ken was even a Republican. He fought for the causes and the people he believed in—not because he wanted to pad a political resume—but because he cared about them. Prior to assuming the office of Attorney General, Ken was a small business owner and partner in the law firm of Cuccinelli & Day, in Fairfax.
