ICYMI: New Ad Ties Jason Miyares to January 6 Insurrection

October 20, 2021

Today, Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring is out with a new ad after his Republican opponent Jason Miyares accepted $500,000 from the Republican Attorneys General Association (RAGA), a group that helped ignite the January 6th insurrection. 

“Organizers who planned and financed January 6 are now financing Jason Miyares with half a million dollars, and Jason Miyares is in lock step with their agenda.”

Prior to the insurrection, RAGA’s policy arm — the Rule of Law Defense Fund (RLDF) — paid for a robocall promoting the rally, encouraging “patriots” to march to the Capitol building to “stop the steal.” In addition to the robocall, Republican Attorneys General bear responsibility for spreading Trump’s Big Lie and trying to overturn the results of the election. 

The ad concludes, “For the January 6 planners, Jason Miyares is the plan.” Virginians deserve better than Jason Miyares and those who support Trump’s Big Lie.
