If the statewide campaign this year has seemed to you like a reality show then the FRC Action Values Bus tour might just validate that perception. In a good way. The Duggar family of TLC's hit reality series 19 Kids and Counting has boarded the bus — just about all of them, too — traveling across the commonwealth for FRC Action endorsed candidates Ken Cuccinelli and E.W. Jackson, the Republican nominees for governor and lieutenant governor, respectively. In fact, the oldest Duggar, Joshua, is the executive director of FRC Action. He wrote this in an e-mail today:
The Virginia gubernatorial election next month is critical — not only for the people of the Old Dominion, but for the entire United States as well. That's why my family wants to help support FRC Action PAC-endorsed candidate for governor Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli and candidate for lieutenant governor Bishop E.W. Jackson. We're touring Virginia this week with our #ValuesBus, and we'd love for you to come and join us on our stops!
Mother Michelle added this statement:
We are so excited to be here in Virginia to endorse Ken Cuccuneli and E.W. Jackson.
There is such a stark contrast between Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli and his opponent, who has never held public office. Serving in the state senate and as the current State Attorney General, Ken Cuccinelli has shown he has a backbone of steel and a heart of gold.
Ken Cuccinelli consistently stands up for women and their unborn children, fights for lower taxes and less government. As governor, Ken Cuccinelli will continue to be a voice for senior citizens, families and veterans.
The Values Bus tour started earlier today at Liberty University. It will be at the capitol in Richmond on Tuesday, then travel east on 64 to Regent University later that day. The complete schedule is below. If the tour stops in a location near you, feel free to stop by and join in and meet the Duggars. You may even pick up some TFF Action Voter Guides as the father, Jim Bob, did (see below) which gave the guides a bit of an online viral push.
