Virginia Governor’s Race 2013

October 30, 2013 by  

Virginia Governor’s Race 2013, A group backed by the Koch brothers has organized hundreds of activists to knock on doors to turn out conservative-leaning voters. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is running ads about the toll of gun violence. And a California billionaire worried about climate change has even hired an impersonator to taunt the Republican nominee.

Welcome to the Virginia governor’s race, where outside groups are flooding the airwaves and bombarding voters’ homes with mailers and phone calls both to shape the outcome of next week’s contest between Republican Ken Cuccinelli and Democrat Terry McAuliffe and to test their campaign tactics ahead of 2016 in a presidential battleground state.

“Virginia in 2013 is a good incubator,” said Dave Schwartz, Virginia state director of Americans for Prosperity, a non-profit group supported by billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch. Its affiliated foundation has undertaken a massive voter-canvassing operation ahead of the election, tapping about 1,600 activists to make phone calls and go door-to-door in the last month alone to encourage Virginians who typically vote in presidential contests to show up next Tuesday.
