Cuccinelli unveils the best ad of 2103

On Friday, I wrote that my first hint of how the campaigns in the race for Virginia governor intended to shake off the preseason dust and get focused for the real political season would come from my Tuesday morning emails.

Like clockwork, the Cuccinelli campaign had a note waiting at 7 a.m. And it contained a link to this new ad.

This is the best ad I’ve seen from either side so far. It humanizes Republican Ken Cuccinelli, and even shows that, yes, he can get choked up over something.

In this case, it’s getting justice for a wrongly accused man. And then giving him a job.

More of this, please.
