Virginia gov. poll: Who are these guys?

Washington (CNN) – With a little more than seven months left until election day in Virginia, a new poll indicates the state’s voters know very little about either of the two major party candidates running for governor.

According to a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday, 63% of voters in the state don't know enough about Democratic candidate Terry McAuliffe to form an opinion. Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, the Republican candidate, is slightly better known, but the survey indicates that 44% don't know enough about him to form an opinion.

Barbour: If in Romney’s position, I would release tax docs

(CNN) - Were he in presidential candidate Mitt Romney's shoes, former Republican National Committee Chairman Haley Barbour said he would release more than two years’ tax documents, something Democrats have repeatedly called on Romney to do.

"I would," Barbour said on CNN's "The Situation Room." "But should it be an issue in the campaign? I don't think it amounts to diddly."

McAuliffe says Obama needs to 'amp it up'

(CNN) – Urging President Obama to "amp it up," former Democratic National Committee Chairman Terry McAuliffe said the president should invite the world's oil experts down to the Gulf to brainstorm a solution to the BP oil disaster.

"If I were President Obama I would call everybody in from all over the world. I have got no pride in this. We have got to shut this down," McAuliffe told CNN.






McAuliffe declined to join the chorus of critics who say the president hasn't shown enough emotion during the crisis. Still the one-time party chairman said former President Bill Clinton "probably would have moved the White House down there."
