I won’t call him a libertarian, but Ken Cuccinelli seems to be running as a bit of a free-market populist. It helps that he’s running against a man who seems to use his political connections in pursuit of personal wealth.

Cuccinelli, recall, made his way up Virginia’s political ladder by fighting against the most powerful political force in Northern Virginia — the developers.

So check out Cuccinelli’s latest ad, above, which says the tax code should “not reward the powerful and well-connected,” adding “special interests shouldn’t get special treatment.”
