Ken Cuccinelli is the presumptive Republican nominee in the Virginia gubernatorial election, but the Attorney General already has a website, kencuccinelliforpresident.com, already set up for the race to the White House. Cuccinelli, a hold-out of the Tea Party movement, is the leading Republican candidate to face likely Democratic opponent, former DNC chairman Terry McAuliffe, later this fall.
The site, created two years ago, was registered by Lauren Patten, a then-administrator for American Target Advertising, a fundraising consultancy firm with ties to Cuccinelli since 2009, according to Virginia Public Access Project filings.
