RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Republican gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli used a brief address to a luncheon to goad Democratic rival Terry McAuliffe to release his tax returns and debate him 15 times over the next five months.
McAuliffe responded by hitting a sore spot for Cuccinelli, calling for an ethics commission. Cuccinelli waited for several years to disclose major personal gifts from a campaign donor and corporate benefactor.
But McAuliffe never ignored Cuccinelli's tax-return and debates challenges.
Cuccinelli and McAuliffe addressed a fundraising luncheon on Thursday for the nonprofit, nonpartisan tracker of cash in state politics, the Virginia Public Access Project.
