WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Tim Kaine released the following statement today on his intent to vote against cloture and final confirmation for the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court:
“After meeting with Judge Gorsuch and reviewing his testimony and past decisions, I’ve observed that he has repeatedly taken an activist approach to cases involving a woman’s right to make her own decisions about her health. He has made the astounding argument that bosses have an individual right to prevent their company’s female employees from using their own health insurance to buy contraception. He has taken extraordinary steps to force reconsideration
BREAKING: BRIAN MORAN IN ROANOKE – Tentative for Friday afternoon probably with Delegate Ward Armstrong, Delegate Onzlee Ware, and others. Stay tuned for confirmation by Wednesday.
ALEXANDRIA – Brian Moran’s campaign for Governor released its latest television ad called “The Democrat” today. As Democrats are making up their decision in this contested primary, many are looking at which candidate can win in November. This ad makes clear that Brian Moran is the strongest general election candidate and the one who shares core Democratic commitments. The ad comes as Terry McAuliffe’s record continues to be exposed and has given Democrats great pause about his ability to win in November. And while Democrats have increasing concerns about Creigh Deeds’s positions that put him out of touch with key parts of Virginia.
“We have the resources to compete and the message to win,” Campaign Manager Andrew Roos said. “This ad makes clear that Brian Moran is the best Democratic nominee to take on Bob McDonnell and shares the progressive values that Virginia Democrats hold dear. We know we need a Governor that will fight for Virginia’s families and seniors.”
The ad highlights Moran’s support for the Warner/Kaine agenda, his work to increase the minimum wage, and his plans to insure every child with health care. The ad includes the pledge made by Moran at the 2009 Jefferson Jackson Dinner to defeat Bob McDonnell in November.
