Former Massachusetts governor and former Republican presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, will officially be joining and headlining Ken Cuccinelli’s private fundraising event in McLean today, September 25.
Cuccinelli is taking the opportunity to have such a well-known political figure help him win the race against Democratic gubernatorial nominee, Terry McAuliffe. “Ken is grateful to have Governor Romney’s support. He’s looking forward to sharing ideas with the governor on how to grow Virginia’s economy and implement his plan to create 58,000 jobs,” said Cuccinelli spokesman Richard Cullen in an article published by The Washington Post on Tuesday.
Romney seemed to have been endorsing Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling (R) last year when he was running against Cuccinelli for the GOP gubernatorial nomination, because Bolling was his campaign chairman. Now that Romney is on Cuccinelli’s side, the race is going to get even more interesting.
