To the democratic gubernatorial nominee for.
Governor Terry McAuliffe.
And joining me now is the Republican candidate in Virginia attorney general Republican gubernatorial candidate.
Can church and -- good to have you of this mr.
This Lou it's good to do it -- you're -- debate the other day.
I mean that was I was a top.
Tough rollicking affair.
And -- -- getting dirty as.
Well they've been up with negative ads there I guess in their second week of that so they went negative well before the debate.
Up one -- -- up on television up on the there are so carrying it into the debate was was.
Apparently no big deal for them in and Terry wasn't very truthful through the course of the debate in and he got tagged for that immediately after the debate by the press.
And down -- we continue to compile.
His I'll call them inaccuracies.
Most people call them something else but.
We've tried to push our -- our jobs message -- there -- that's consistent with limiting government whereas he wants a bigger government he was talking about growing Medicaid as a jobs program.
So Terry McAuliffe thinks growing government welfare.
Is how you create jobs and I think leaving taxpayers with more of their money in businesses with more of their money to invest to grow the economy is how you create jobs so.
We tried to zero in on those kinds of differences that make a real difference in the economy and an opportunity.
Well a recent quinnipiac polls -- you're trailing McAuliffe 43 to 39%.
A real clear politics as you -- right behind McAuliffe.
39 to 40%.
This is a tough campaign and it's.
It's now -- being influenced by this scandal.
Hello how -- broke my New Yorkers as I said the number two HR director of India chest.
Under investigation for intervention to obtain visas for foreign investors -- a company called Gulf Coast of funds ran his.
Run by Hillary Clinton at least in part by Hillary Clinton's brother.
Gulf Coast funds management website -- only one company that it works worth and that's green tech column motor.
Back Terry McAuliffe -- that company back in 2009.
The -- it in 2012.
And denied that they're being investigated in the McAuliffe campaign it's it's got nothing to do would have.
So why is it -- -- Well it it really raises more questions about green -- and its funding and Terry has been very resistant.
To any sort of transparency to answering questions from the media or anyone else about.
These arrangements or about green tech and its financing or about his own finances.
Lou in this campaign I've put out eight years of my tax returns I've been incredibly transparent.
To the voters of Virginia.
And Terry McAuliffe last year -- when he twelve.
Was one of those folks suggesting Mitt Romney should release his tax deterrence.
But Terry McAuliffe isn't -- releasing his now.
Of his own and so he's not being transparent and this is a real trust issue.
And the news of the investigation.
Just raises the importance of it and it raises more questions that Terry's refusing to answer and I think Virginians deserve answers to those kinds of questions for those of us.
Seeking the highest office in the state.
Now McAuliffe and others or throwing that back -- you.
Governor Bob and I personally does want -- -- governor Bob McDonnell announcing he's repaid more than a 140000.
Loans amid the federal and state investigation into his gifts and financial contributions.
From Star Scientific executive Johnny Williams.
And that is a full blown.
Scandal are in the state of Virginia.
It and you also receive gifts from Williams had stock in the company that you didn't disclose.
We wanna point out the state prosecutor -- looking into -- found that the attorney general did nothing wrong.
But is that McDonald controversy.
Is that spilling into the gubernatorial campaign.
Is that it is that it is.
Well certainly I had -- what's his.
Sure certainly what's gone on with the governor.
Disappointing and and a lot of other things and and Terry McAuliffe's trying to sort of wrap.
That around my neck even know this is all very personal to the governor.
You noted the prosecutor.
Looking at my disclosures.
Your listeners should should know I referred my own case to a Democrat prosecutor.
And his review concluded there was no evidence that I had done anything wrong so.
I did that in my own volition.
I brought my own mistakes forward and I asked a Democrat prosecutor to review them with authority to prosecute if anything had been done wrong.
That stands in stark contrast in terms of transparency.
To Terry McAuliffe hiding.
Not answering questions about.
His businesses his his so called businesses not releasing his tax returns it's very hard to trust someone.
Who is hiding like that whereas I put everything out there even my mistakes.
How many that's the kind of commitment to transparency that -- that Virginians can expect from me.
How many more debates do you have.
We only have one that -- has agreed to we challenge them to fifteen debates.
And all around Virginia and they have utterly refuse they've only -- to one other debate.
-- are all all I'll say this if you were to do fourteen more debates like -- one you did Saturday.
-- -- -- and need some -- some real good rest after.
We thank for being here we wish you luck and reported talk -- civilians there.
Can church and our attorney general of the great state of Virginia running for governor did about.
