All four candidates for governor and attorney general attended the prosecutors’ convention on Friday, according to The Washington Post.
Ken Cuccinelli, Terry McAuliffe, Mark Obenshain and Mark Herring all vowed to increase prosecutors’ salaries, if elected.
They each spoke for ten minutes to the Virginia Association of Commonwealth’s Attorneys.
The lieutenant governor candidates were invited but declined to attend.
McAuliffe focused on the negative effects of Cuccinelli’s tax-cut proposal while Herring focused on his support for tougher gun laws. He stated that Obenshain received support from the Virginia Citizens Defense League.
