Virginia’s Republican Attorney General, Ken Cuccinelli, says he came to Alabama to “build a team.”
The headline grabbing AG considered a Tea Party favorite is campaigning for Alabama’s Republican nominee for AG, Luther Strange. Cuccinelli has been campaigning for fellow Republicans around the country.
Monday he was campaigning for a Republican candidate in Iowa.
The Strange-Cuccinelli tandem started the day on FOX6 News Good Day Alabama.
Strange says he supports Cuccinelli’s lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the federal law overhauling health care.
In September, Cuccinelli told Tea Partiers “the state’s attorneys general are the last line of defense to protect the Constitution from the federal government.”
Strange says there’s “a huge contrast” between him and Democratic nominee James Anderson on the health care overhaul and on gambling in Alabama.
Strange tried to tie Anderson to one of the 11 arrested Monday in that federal corruption probe.
“The person I’m running against is right in the middle of that debate,” Strange says, “he (Anderson) represents one of the gambling interest that’s associated with Milton McGregor.”
A spokesman for Anderson says not so.
Communications Manager Dean Argo says “James represents Macon County Sheriff David Warren, not Victoryland or Milton McGregor. James has represented Sheriff Warren for more than three years.”
Anderson appears Thursday morning on Good Day Alabama.
