Today Virginia’s candidates for governor met on stage once again this morning.
Democrat Terry McAuliffe’s toughest moment came when asked about the Bi-County Parkway, a proposed project that aims to alleviate traffic in Prince William and Fairfax counties. At the end of a long, meandering, awkward answer explaining why he didn’t have a position yet, McAuliffe asked moderator Derek McGinty, anchor for WUSA, the Washington, D.C. CBS affiliate, if he lived in Virginia.
McGinty said he didn’t live in Virgina, “but have to drive there frequently.” McAuliffe urged him to move to Virginia, and McGinty responded, “I’ll move there when I know about the Bi-County Parkway.”
McAuliffe roared with laughter. “Fair enough. That’s good.”
As he puts it, he merely “spent more time with Al Gore than with my own wife in 1993” as chairman of the DNC’s Business Leadership Forum.
