Today on NBC12 First at 4: Del. Ward Armstrong
The chorus of criticism against Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli will be led today by Democratic House Minority Leader Ward Armstrong. Armstrong is set to field calls from the statewide Virginia media, where he plans to attack the Attorney General’s decision to stay out of a Supreme Court case involving the family of a soldier killed in Iraq and the controversial Westboro Baptist Church (WBC). Cuccinelli is one of only two State Attorneys General who declined the opportunity to file an amicus brief in support of Albert Snyder, who is suing WBC over their protest of his son’s funeral.
Del. Armstrong will be my live guest today on NBC12 First at 4, where he will discuss his problems with the Attorney General’s decision. You see the interview on NBC12-TV and it will also be streamed live at NBC12.com.
Armstrong is rumored to be positioning himself for a run for statewide office, possibly even Governor. He has made a few appearances at fundraisers in Northern Virginia and was even referred to on the House floor (by Republicans) as the “Gentleman from Statewide”. (see the video below)
We will see what he has to say today at 4pm.
