Four Reasons Why Mark Herring Is Wrong For Virginia

Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring’s tenure has been a disaster, defined by his out of touch liberalism and poor job performance. In order to spotlight some of the key reasons, the Republican Attorneys General Association (RAGA) launched a new microsite today,, first seen in a report by the Washington Examiner.

The site highlights four important examples that explain why Virginia voters have been so ill-served by Herring’s tenure as Attorney General:

  • In 2015, Herring ended Virginia’s concealed carry permit reciprocity with 25 other states.
  • Herring used money Virginia received from a settlement to give his staff “backdoor pay raises,” while other states used the money for “public education, health care, and consumer protection.”
  • Using DACA as a pretext, Herring allowed undocumented immigrants in Virginia to pay in-state tuition.
  • Right to work has been the law in Virginia for decades. Yet, Herring worked to “undercut” Virginia’s right to work law, including signing onto Supreme Court brief.
