It seems before the Jerry Kilgore conference call had ended the Kaine crew had sent out emails slamming him. Norm has the story.
It seems the Kaine crew left out a few facts about the Warner Kaine history.
- Under Gov. George Allen, funding for higher education increased by 28.93%.
Under Gov. Jim Gilmore, funding for higher education increased 41.04%.
Please note that this was achieved without raising taxes (or "budget reform," whichever you prefer).
In the budgets since Tim Kaine became Lieutenant Governor, higher education funding has decreased 2.86%.
I will not comment as the numbers speak for themselves.
