Cuccinelli Cutting Size of Ad Buys

Ken Cuccinelli (R) "is getting crushed on the Virginia airwaves, and it's probably only going to get worse - a major factor thwarting the Republican's hopes of a comeback in a governor's race that's been slipping away," Politico reports.

With nearly all polls showing him considerably behind Terry McAuliffe (D), "the result is that Cuccinelli's campaign has been making smaller and smaller ad buys over the past three weeks. He spent $1.2 million on broadcast in the final week of September, $716,000 last week and reserved $685,000 for this week."

A new Quinnipiac poll finds McAuliffe leading 47% to 39%, with Libertarian Robert Sarvis at 8%.
