The race to be Virginia’s next governor is dead-even with Republican Jerry Kilgore and Democrat Tim Kaine both polling 45 percent of the statewide vote. Two weeks ago Kilgore had a three-point advantage over Kaine. In August, Kilgore held a six-point lead. Kilgore’s honesty and integrity may seem to be allowing the desperate Kaine to steal votes, but in the end, Virginians will show their traditional moral values when we elect Kilgore as governor.
Kilgore, a first-generation college student, understands how important a higher education is to succeed in the global economy. Virginia is fortunate to have excellent colleges and universities, but we must work to maintain and improve the quality of our higher education. Kilgore is running not just for Virginia citizens, but for Virginia families as well.
Kilgore values education and the Virginia way of life. He is desperately fi ghting the liberal democrats in Richmond to use lottery money for youth education. By using the lottery money for education (as it was intended), Kilgore won’t have to raise taxes.
His opponent, Kaine, the former mayor of Richmond, had the second worst scores in student performance and a high drop out rate. Virginia’s teachers are the key to the success of students and the teachers are working harder than ever to teach our children, enforcing some of the toughest academic standards in the nation.
Kilgore, as governor, will make sure we create more jobs in Virginia so all of our citizens have an equal opportunity to work and make a decent living for their families. Kilgore will also be an active recruiter so that we expand existing Virginia businesses, and encourage national and international businesses to move their operations to the Commonwealth.
Families across Virginia have resorted to planning their lives around traffi c, spending several hours a week in congested traffi c, forcing them to miss soccer games, doctors appointments and PTA meetings. One of the keys to preserve existing businesses and promote business expansion in the Commonwealth is to improve our transportation system. Kilgore is committed to do so. His plan is to widen Rt. 66 inside the beltway, using extra state dollars to get it done quickly.
When it comes to Kaine and taxes, wow! Kaine says he cut taxes for the homeowners of Richmond, but he didn’t. In the end, they just went up. He even supports higher gas prices even though the gas tax in Virginia is one of the highest in the nation. He says he supports the sanctity of life, but has a long history of supporting abortions. Kaine also spent years as a liberal activist, but on the radio he leads you into believing he is conservative. The man prides himself on being a sensible centrist, but acts as a drastic liberal. Kaine also claims that he created thousands of new jobs; yeah right! The unemployment rate in Richmond went up to 47 percent.
As Kilgore’s ad says, “Have you ever ridden behind a car that has its right blinker going the whole time? He’s telling you he is turning right, then he makes a hard left turn. Crash!’ That’s what its like being around Kaine. He may signal right, but the only direction he’s ever turned ... is left.
