RICHMOND - On Saturday, June 20th the Virginia Bar Association is hosting its election-year Attorney General Debate at the Cavalier Hotel in Virginia Beach. The debate will be moderated by Bob Gibson."Debate arrangements have been relatively easy, and the Bar Association is to be commended for the program they have set up" said Chris LaCivita, Campaign spokesman for the Ken Cuccinelli for Attorney General Campaign. "Unfortunately, the Shannon campaign is trying to suppress any attempt to publicize this debate outside the hotel ballroom doors," added LaCivita.
The Shannon campaign pushed for a "no use" agreement, an uncommon position in which all campaigns involved in a debate agree not to use any recording of the event for any purpose.This proposal was immediately rejected by the Cuccinelli campaign.
The Cuccinelli for Attorney General Campaign is planning on taping the debate and making it available in its entirety on the Internet for all of the Virginians who can't make it to Virginia Beach at 9:00 am on a Saturday morning in June.
