The candidates have talked about many issues like healthcare, drug reform, and civil liberties. The candidates that are running are Ken Cuccinelli, Terry McAuliffe, and Robert Sarvis. Ken Cuccinelli is running on the republican ticket. Terry McAuliffe is running on the democratic ticket. Lastly Robert Sarvis is running on the libertarian ticket. Ken Cuccinelli is like any other republican and his views are just as a normal republican are. Cuccinelli opposes the new Obamacare like most republicans do. He has hinted at how he believes on drug reform but has yet to say what his plans are for it. On civil liberties he is very similar to how all the other candidates feel about it. Ken Cuccinelli opposes the new healthcare reform and wants to change it to the way the health care was. He wants to leave the medical decisions to the doctors and the families and that the government should stay out of people’s healthcare. He has stated that the new”Obamacare will cost the country more than it will save it in the long run”. He also wants to make state crossing healthcare legal which would increase interstate commerce and be better for the economy. Says that Obamacare is unconstitutional and should not be allowed to pass. Cuccinelli has stated that he is open to ideas of any new drug reform ideas. If the legalization of marijuana every came to a vote he would vote for it. Wanting to fight the harder drugs like pills, meth, crack ect. If marijuana became legal in Virginia he would tax it and use the money to help fund the drug war in Virginia. Believes that with marijuana was legal it would be an amazing tax income for the state. Cuccinelli believes that traditional marriage should be protected. Also he has stated that marriage is only for one... ... middle of paper ... ...e more different than all the candidates on some views. With that said I wish Robert Sarvis would have won and not Terry McAuliffe. To me his plans will only harm our already struggling economy. With all that said many of the candidates had many good ideas and views but it seems Virginia choose to go with McAuliffe. I do agree with some of his views about drug reform and civil liberties but when it comes to healthcare I lean more to Sarvis. Who knows he might be able to fix the problems we have within our state. The only way we can tell if he is the right man for the job is to see and wait. Works Cited "Terry McAuliffe on the Issues." Terry McAuliffe on the Issues. N.p., n.d. Web. 07 Nov. 2013.
