Time to Pay Attention to the VA-AG Race

I haven't paid any attention to the Virginia Attorney General race -- but it looks like it's right time I should. Take a gander at who is running the campaign of GOP nominee Ken Cuccinelli:
[Democratic nominee Steve Shannon's new campaign manager Mike] Henry faces Chris LaCivita, a veteran Republican operative who worked for George Allen and was behind the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth in 2004 and the first ads about Barack Obama's connection to Vietnam War-era radical William Ayers last year.
I don't know anything about Cuccinelli, but the people he associates himself with say a lot about him. Running for a position that is not an inherently partisan one, but rather one about upholding the law, Cuccinelli chose as his top staffer a complete partisan hack who stoops to the lowest of lows to try to slime Democrats. If this is any indication of the type of Attorney General Cuccinelli would be, then it should be abundantly clear that he must be stopped.
