Trump Must Be Held Accountable for Dangerous Transportation Record

Donald Trump is traveling to East Palestine, Ohio today. He may be treating it like a campaign stop, but this trip is instead a reminder that Trump and his administration laid the foundation for the toxic train derailment.  The Trump administration gutted safety regulations and created dangerous conditions for workers. It is a grotesque political stunt that Trump is showing in East Palestine, especially considering…

TIMELINE: What Did Christie Know and When?

As BridgeGate documents subpoenaed by the New Jersey State Legislature are due to be turned over to investigators today, it's worth reviewing the timeline of what Governor Chris Christie has said he knew about this growing scandal and when he says he knew it. While Christie has doubled down on his claims that he knew nothing of the lane closures while they were happening, his public statements on this timeline have been inconsistent and imprecise.

Cuccinelli clings to Tea Party extremism in final debate

At tonight's debate, Ken Cuccinelli returned to his roots by embracing the extreme agenda of the Tea Party at every turn. Virginians are seeking a mainstream leader to boost the Commonwealth's economy and create jobs, so it's no surprise that voters are rejecting a candidate who made a name for himself by waging unpopular fights to further his extreme agenda.

BRIDGE BRIEF: Cuccinelli's Opposition to Bipartisan Transportation Plan

Washington Post Editorial: Cuccinelli Opposed “Every Significant, Politically Viable” Effort on Transportation “For More than a Decade.” According to a staff editorial in the Washington Post, “In fact, it is consistent with his opposition to every significant, politically viable effort to rescue the state’s transportation fund for more than a decade.” [Washington Post, Editorial, 3/17/13]

Republican Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling: Cuccinelli's Opposition to the Transportation Compromise “Shows How Out of Touch He Is With the People of Virginia.” According to the Washington Examiner, “Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling, a Republican who may enter the race as an independent, also chastised Cuccinelli, saying his opposition could prevent the General Assembly from finally solving the state's transportation problems. ‘His opposition to this historic transportation agreement just shows how out of touch he is with the people of Virginia,’ Bolling said. ‘It is not the least bit helpful to have him coming in at the last minute criticizing this proposal. That's not what leadership is about.’” [Washington Examiner, 2/21/13]
