Democrats Call Terry McAuliffe Out For Falsely Claiming That He Created 100,000 Jobs
With only four days until the Democrat Primary, today the Republican Party of Virginia is reminding voters that four years ago Democrat Brian Moran called Terry McAuliffe out on his 100,000 jobs claim saying "that's just not true."
"In 2009, well before Terry McAuliffe's GreenTech and Franklin Pellets misadventures, McAuliffe made an outrageous job creation claim that even his fellow Democrat called him out on," said Virginia Republican Party spokesman Jahan Wilcox. "Now four years later, McAuliffe won't event attempt justify his claim, which sends voters a clear message that he can't be trusted."
In April 2009, McAuliffe Said He "Created Over 100,000 Jobs." (2009 Farm Team Gubernatorial Debate, William And Mary, 4/19/09; "McAuliffe: I Created Over 100,000 Jobs,www.youtube.com, 4/7/13)
But Four Years Later, McAuliffe's Campaign "Did Not Respond Directly To Questions About Whether He Stands By The 100,000 Jobs." "McAuliffe's campaign on Wednesday did not respond directly to questions about whether he stands by the 100,000 jobs-the same number Republican presidential nominee Romney struggled to defend in the 2012 campaign."
