Cuccinelli Avoids Photo Op with Cruz

"In the clearest sign yet of the potent effect of the government shutdown on the Virginia governor's race, Republican Ken Cuccinelli avoided being photographed with Ted Cruz at a gala they headlined here Saturday night--even leaving before the Texas senator rose to speak," Politico reports.

"Cruz has become the face of GOP intransigence, and the conservative attorney general's effort to distance himself from congressional Republicans reflects how damaging Cuccinelli realizes a prolonged shutdown may be for his campaign."
