Restoration PAC Ad Slams Terry McAuliffe in $1.75 Million Ad Buy as VA Governor’s Race Heats Up

“Who will keep us safe in Virginia? Murder rates are at a 20-year high with no end in sight,” the narrator of the ad begins, identifying former Gov. McAuliffe as a “career politician.”

“Last time he was a failure. Under his watch, murder jumped 43 percent. His parole board picks turned criminals loose. Now, he’s cozying up to radical groups that want to defund the police,” the narrator adds. “Terry McAuliffe— he’s too dangerous for Virginia.”


The $1.75 million TV ad buy focusing on the Democrat’s “dismal” record on crime will begin airing in the Old Dominion State on Wednesday.

“Murder rates are spiraling in Democrat-run cities and states across America,” Doug Truax, Restoration PAC’s Founder and President, said in a statement.

“Terry McAuliffe has already demonstrated his failure at controlling those rates in Virginia — why would Virginians give him another chance?” he added.
