I would also like to congratulate Ken Cuccinelli on becoming our Republican nominee for Governor.  Ken is a man of principle who you never have a doubt on where he stands on the important issues facing Virginia.  I know he will continue the hard work Governor McDonnell has started to grow our economy, reform our state government, and provide greater opportunities for all Virginians.  I look forward to working with him, or nominees for Lt. Governor, Attorney General, and all of our House candidates for a united Republican victory his fall."
