WASHINGTON (CNN) – Terry McAuliffe is wasting no time putting his sizable campaign war chest to work in his effort to become Virginia’s next governor.
McAuliffe released “Listened,” his first television ad of the election cycle, Monday. The 30-second spot released Monday focuses on the economy and job creation, and is set to air in the Norfolk region.
McAuliffe is a three-way contest for the Democratic nomination against former state delegate Brian Moran and state senator Creigh Deeds. Joe Trippi, former adviser to John Edwards and Howard Dean, will be acting as a media consultant for Moran.
The winner of the Democratic nomination will face off against Republican Bob McDonnell, currently serving as Virginia’s attorney general.
