Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, who is pro-life has cut the lead of his pro-abortion opponent Terry McAuliffe in the race for governor in Virginia. McAuliffe leads Cuccinelli among likely voters 45 percent to 41 percent, with 9 percent for Libertarian candidate Robert Sarvis, according to a Quinnipiac University poll. McAuliffe had had stronger leads earlier in the month but is now within the margin of error. The poll found that if Sarvis were not in the race, likely voters would split for McAuliffe 47 percent to 45 percent, which Quinnipiac describes as “too close to call.”
