Obama denounces Virginian gubernatorial candidate Cuccinelli as tea party radical

Perhaps fearing the inroads made by Virginian Republican gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli, President Barack Obama told his Democratic supporters to remain vigilant and ever wary. "Nothing makes me more nervous than when my supporters start feeling too confident," Obama told a crowd of 1,600 gathered in a high school gymnasium in Arlington."So I want to put the fear of God in all of you."

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - At the rally, the president cast Cuccinelli on Sunday as part of an extreme Tea Party faction that shut down the government. Obama then lent his support for Democrat candidate Terry McAuliffe in the home stretch of a bitter race for the governor of Virginia.

Cuccinelli, the state's attorney is seeking a last-minute upset, cast this week's Virginia gubernatorial election as a referendum on Obama's troubled national health care law. As one of just two gubernatorial races in the nation, the results of Tuesday's elections could reveal the American public's attitudes and both parties' messages heading into the 2014 midterm elections.

Obama denounced Cuccinelli as an ideologue, who was unwilling to compromise. In the meantime, Cuccinelli told his supporters that Tuesday's election will be a test for the health care law along with McAuliffe's support for it.

Obama said a vote for McAuliffe would be a vote for progress, saying that Cuccinelli wanted Virginia voters to forget that the Republican's like-minded counterparts in Congress just weeks earlier had taken the economy, the nation and the economy hostage, hurting Virginians in the process.

"Now he says it's in the rear-view mirror. It can't be in the rear-view mirror if this is your operative theory of politics," Obama told the crowd.

"No more Obamacare in Virginia. That's the message we can send," Cuccinelli said in Weyers Cave, a small town northwest of Charlottesville. The event was the beginning of an action-packed day that would take him from airport to airport, many in Republican-heavy regions in southern and western Virginia.

Polls show McAuliffe ahead. Campaign finance reports show dramatically lopsided results, with the Democrats outraising and outspending Cuccinelli by a wide margin. Television airtime was tilted in McAuliffe's favor by 10-to-1.

The gubernatorial race in Virginia is a hard and bitter one. "If you want to fight Obamacare, if you want to tell Washington that Virginians have had enough of Obamacare, then I need your vote," a hoarse Cuccinelli said at an airport rally in Roanoke.

In response, McAuliffe has said that "If mainstream Virginians from both parties don't turn out to vote, you're letting the tea party decide Virginia's future."

More than 114,000 Virginians have already voted early. The race is going to be decided by the few Virginians who choose to vote. The state Board of Elections chief says turnout could be as low as 30 percent of registered voters and the campaigns see 40 percent turnout as the goal.
