Government bureaucrats strongly inclined to vote for Democrats sunk Republican candidate Ken Cuccinelli’s bid for Virginia governor, especially those staffing the military-industrial complex, said former Texas Republican Rep. Ron Paul on Wednesday.
Paul, a 2012 candidate for the Republican nomination, supported Cuccinelli in his bid for the Virginia governor’s seat against the winner, Democratic Gov.-elect Terry McAuliffe. Paul blamed government workers that reside in the D.C. suburbs of northern Virginia for Cuccinelli’s loss.
“You know, a couple weeks ago Ken was way behind and nearly caught up,” Paul said on Wednesday’s “Your World” on the Fox News Channel. “So, I would say it was still an issue. But I think government workers was a bigger issue. I think it was sort of like throwing in D.C. people into the race because of northern Virginia. So, that’s a completely different story.”
