RICHMOND — Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II promotes his plan to cut $1.4 billion in personal and business taxes in a television commercial to be released Monday.
The ad — the Republican gubernatorial candidate’s second, and the race’s third overall — features Cuccinelli talking up his plan to cut taxes and close tax exemptions and loopholes.
“Small businesses are the backbone of our economy,” Cuccinelli says, speaking directly to the camera and standing in what appears to be a hardware store. “But they are being overtaxed and over regulated. I’ve a plan to make Virginia an engine for job growth. It starts with closing tax loopholes and putting an end to special interest giveaways.
“We’ll use the savings to cut taxes for those who’ve earned it: job-creating small businesses and middle class families. The powerful and well connected already get their breaks. As governor, I’ll be on your side.”
Titled “Your Side,” the 30-second spot will air statewide.
