He has been a true and consistent champion of liberty and as Governor will work to preserve and protect the principles our nation was founded on.
“Ken has a long and consistent track record of working to defend the Constitution. He was the first Attorney General in the nation to file a lawsuit against ObamaCare, he has fought against illegal and unconstitutional actions taken by the EPA and has changed the paradigm of how Attorneys General fight to defend the Constitution nationwide. Ken is a proven leader, with a proven record of fighting every day for liberty. I hope you will join me in supporting Ken Cuccinelli for Governor of Virginia.”
In accepting Senator Paul’s endorsement, Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli said, “I am honored to receive Senator Paul’s endorsement.

Senator Paul and I share the goal of defeating President Obama in November, and when we accomplish that goal, I look forward to his help in making sure that we are victorious in 2013.”
