Wilson's new ad simply lays things out as they are

Here is Alan Wilson's new ad.

    No Dukes of Hazzard Attorney General!

    It is important that we elect an Attorney General with experience. Alan has that experience!

  3. We have plenty of fine solicitors who can handle criminal prosecution.

    As we have seen with the Condon and McMaster over the past 16 years - this daddy's boy just wants to use the office as a stepping stone and will continue to use the office for political gains.

    No more career politicians - go Leighton Lord!

    McMaster did an excellent job in the Attorney Generals Office and wanted to help our state even more so he ran for governor.

    What makes you think Leighton has no interest in pursuing other higher offices?

    This campaign needs to be about the facts and issues. And the fact that Leighton is not a prosecutor is an issue, if you want to be the chief prosecutor of the state! The people will elect a man with experience, not a man with a rich father-in-law who is buying his way into office!

    Condon only went to court one time to argue a case - that was the crack baby case which originated in Charleston when he was solicitor, and ended up before the US Supreme Court. That was it.

    McMaster was in court for the HomeGold/Earle Morris case. That was it.

    The rest of the time, the AGs manage the office and oversee the huge civil cases that are assigned by law: representing public officials and agencies that get sued; multi-state class action cases, global drug overcharge and other monetary recovery cases; environmental cases like the water dispute; issuing opinions; and bringing constitutional questions before the Supreme Court; and more.

    Wilson has few credentials, if you can even find them on his resume. He is not even listed in Martindale Hubbell. Lord is rated AV (preeminent)at 5, the highest you can attain.

    Leighton Lord is the man for the job.

    How much is Wilson paying you VUI?

    I have two big problems with Lord
    1) His campaign contributions to Democrats

    2) Will Folks is backing him, which probably accounts for the sleazeball attacks aginst Wilson's mother of all people

    Well, let's make that 3-The AG DOES need prosecutorial experience. Big difference between a defense attorney and a prosecutor. The AG office is not a law firm.

    Exactly why Lord needs litigation experience:

    1. Facts are tricky things. Tough to make a case with the facts against you.
    2. 75% of the attorneys in the AG office are in prosecution roles. Hard to supervise what you don't know.
    3. After today's debate in WVOC, needs to learn how to handle examination and crosshe young kid waxed him.
