Virginia AG Eyes Reelection While Pushing Back on Obama Policies

Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, who has been in the news lately for staking out anti-Obama stances on immigration and health care reform, admitted to MSNBC’s Daily Rundown today that he is already preparing for a 2013 reelection campaign.

Cuccinelli has been criticized for using his post to promote his own political agenda. He established a political action committee March 23, the same day Obama’s health care reform bill became law — and the same day Cuccinelli filed a suit against it. His website, titled “Stop the Mandate,” links to a petition against enacting the health care reform law in Virginia and solicits donations for future campaigns. Cuccinelli jumped into the national immigration debate Friday, when he wrote an opinion allowing police officers in the state to check immigration status of anyone stopped or arrested in the state.

He told MSNBC he simply is being realistic about the need for money to defend himself against opponents:

The day after the election, I immediately start running the next election. I’m not a fool, I’m becoming a target, and I know I’m becoming a bigger target. We are attempting to defend ourselves.

The petition is an attempt to generate public support, and I will tell you that I have never seen in 20 years of my political activity citizens so willing to study the substance of the issue before them…and we’re trying to take full advantage of that to educate Virginians about how these first principles affect policies in the real world.

Asked what the next election would be, Cuccinelli confirmed he plans for reelection for attorney general in 2013, but was silent on further aspirations. “We’ll start under the presumption that I’m running for reelection, we’ll see where that ends up,” he told MSNBC.
