HARRISONBURG, Va. -- Ken Cuccinelli made a stop at James Madison University to talk to students about his K-12 education plan.
The four core principles he outlined as part of his plan are empowerment, excellence, opportunity and accountability.
Cuccinelli's meeting with the students happened shortly after President Obama held a press conference talking about the shutdown.
"Northern Virginia, Southeast Virginia is particularly impacted by this. I've noticed that both Republicans and Democrats in the house are voting on bills together and they don't even come to the floor in the Senate. So, we need to start seeing those flow through the U.S. Senate and get voted on whether they are up or down," said Cuccinelli, the Republican candidate for governor on the topic of the shutdown.
When asked about the latest Politico poll that shows his opponent McAuliffe in the lead, he said he hadn't looked at it.
