Senator Black Statement On Terry McAuliffe's Evolving Energy Positions

State Senator Richard Black released the following statement regarding Terry McAuliffe's ever evolving positions on offshore energy production and coal: 

"Terry McAuliffe's fierce opposition to offshore oil production and his lack of commitment to our mining communities in his last campaign was as startling then as his about face on both issues is today.  McAuliffe's willingness to do anything and say anything that he thinks voters want to hear is just not what leadership is all about.  Contrast that with Ken Cuccinelli who has always been a strong proponent of an all-of-the-above energy strategy that responsibly makes use of our state's abundant natural resources both onshore and offshore, and the choice is clear.  Virginia needs a Governor who bases his policies on what's best for the Commonwealth's future, not what's best for his prospects in an election."

Senator Black is a member of the Senate Agriculture, Conservation and Natural Resources Committee.
