Allen Campaign Responds to Kaine Comments

George Allen, Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, responded to comments made by Senate contender Tim Kaine (D) at a roundtable at City Cafe this week in Manassas.

Former Virginia Gov. George Allen's campaign camp had some pointed responses to statements made by U.S. Senate candidate and former

“Tim Kaine talks a lot about building a ‘talent economy’ on the campaign trail, but as governor he made significant cuts to state support for higher education, the cost of tuition rose and college was made less affordable for countless families and students," Bill Riggs, Allen's campaign said Thursday in a written statement. 

"The truth is, as governor and in Washington as President Obama’s hand-picked partisan Chairman of the Democratic National Committee, Tim Kaine has consistently championed policies that hurt families and small businesses and make America less competitive. 

George Allen envisions a better future with pro-jobs-growth policies that empower small businesses to invest, expand and hire, and he’s the only candidate in this race with a plan to get our economy back on track.”
