(CNN) - It looks like the heat's being turned up in a gubernatorial campaign that's already very hot.
The campaign of Virginia Attorney General and Republican gubernatorial nominee Ken Cuccinelli said Monday that it's going up with a new TV commercial titled "scandal" that slams Democratic rival Terry McAuliffe over federal investigations of an electric car company that McAuliffe co-founded.
Alexandria, Virginia (CNN) – The widow and daughter of a Virginia police officer killed in the line of duty endorse Ken Cuccinelli for governor in a new television commercial that will start running throughout the commonwealth on Monday, a Cuccinelli campaign adviser tells CNN.
Cuccinelli’s first TV ad since accepting the Republican Party’s gubernatorial nomination Saturday doesn’t talk about his plan to fix the economy or lower taxes, but rather it seeks to paint him as a compassionate individual who will never leave your side.
“I honestly don’t know how I survived it,” Sue Garbarino says about the murder of her husband, Fairfax County Police Officer Michael Garbarino, in May 2006. “I just needed to be there for my girls. Every time I was in the hospital, I would see Ken Cuccinelli. I will never forget that.”
