In Tight Virginia Governor's Race, McAuliffe Backs Obama's New Coal Regs

The Democratic nominee in the closely watched 2013 Virginia governor’s race has endorsed the Obama administration’s new regulations on coal -- a daring political move considering his single-digit lead in a state with deep ties to coal mining.

Candidate Terry McAuliffe, known nationally as a powerful Clinton fundraiser, took his stance Tuesday, about two weeks after the Environmental Protection Agency issued the tighter regulations and after months of being pressed to take a position on what is a major election issue.

“I support what we need to do to obviously protect our air and our water,” he said during a campaign stop in northern Virginia, according to The Washington Post.
