Campaign: Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli Won’t Sign Americans for Tax Reform Anti-Tax Pledge

by Colonel on March 13, 2013

“Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli will not sign the famed Americans for Tax Reform pledge against raising taxes, his campaign told POLITICO – a surprise move for a gubernatorial candidate known for his down-the-line conservatism.

The presumptive Republican nominee for governor indicated in a private meeting with business leaders in Tuesday that he is not inclined to take the no-tax oath, sources said.

Cuccinelli’s campaign confirmed he will not sign the ATR pledge and explained Cuccinelli has settled on a blanket no-pledge policy for the campaign: he will not sign make any similar commitments to other special interest groups.

A Cuccinelli spokesman said the decision not to adopt the ATR pledge – which is closely associated with the group’s president, Grover Norquist – shouldn’t be taken as a sign he plans to raise taxes.
