Cuccinelli Announces First Initiative in Race for Governor
Richmond, VA - Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli held a press conference in Richmond Tuesday morning to unveil his first policy initiative.
The announcement came from a Sweet Frog Frozen Yogurt shop. It's what he is calling the official launch to his campaign for governor.
The initiative includes a plan to slash taxes by $1.4 billion and cutting corporate tax rates.
Cuccinelli spoke with ABC 13 Tuesday about his plan.
"We're going to sit down with industry folks to see if there is a way that those economically destructive taxes can be replaced with something else," Cuccinelli said.
Cuccinelli is also targeting the B-POLE Tax, the Machine and Tools Tax, and the Merchant's Capital Tax.
The latest Washington Post poll shows Cuccinelli leading McAuliffe 46% to 41%.
