McAuliffe Attacks Parrish

On his Ask the Governor show on WTOP Governor Terry McAuliffe lost control and began an attack on the Republican state senate candidate Hal Parrish. It seems that Parrish has the temerity to oppose McAuliffe's plan to levy a 17 dollar per day toll on 66. Parrish seems concerned that the money collected by the toll won't actually be spent to improve 66.

Now ordinarily a Democrat attacking a Republican would not seem odd, but Parrish is currently not in the state senate. Parrish is the Mayor of Manassas. McAuliffe does not attack him for his performance in that office, rather he attacks him for future obstructionism if he is elected to the state senate.

There are 40 state senate campaigns, but the Governor singles out Parrish to attack. Perhaps Parrish should be flattered.

Now for those of you that don't know Terry McAuliffe defines obstructionism as opposing anything he wants.
