Fact Checking Claims made during Candidates for Governor Debate

Virginia It is now up to you in the vote for the Commonwealth's next Governor. Last night both candidates took to the stage at Virginia Tech, and today Politifact Virginia looked into some of the claims made at the debate.

The first coming from McAuliffe saying Cuccinelli sponsored the personhood bill, which would outlaw most forms of contraception. Politifact says Cuccinelli did support the bill, but it was aimed to give "legal remedy to parents of unborn children caused by criminal acts".

The second coming from Cuccinelli saying more people need full time work not Obamacare part time work. Politifact points out since the law was passed in 2010, full time employment increased ten times compared to part time employment.

Here is a full list of the claims and report from Politifact VA: http://www.politifact.com/virginia/article/2013/oct/24/cuccinelli-mcauliffe-hit-familiar-punches/
