FILE - In this June 28, 2012 file photo, Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli speaks in Richmond, Va. Virginia is conducting nothing short of a grand political experiment, testing whether a tea party favorite can carry a closely divided state. If Ken Cuccinelli succeeds, he will undercut Republican moderates’ claims that hard-right ideologies are hurting the party, and undoubtedly intensify a debate already roiling the GOP.
