Allen's campaign fired back.
"Tim Kaine’s TV career has reached a new low as he peddles a fake 'fiscal responsibility' record with the hope that Virginians won't know a scam when they see it," Allen spokeswoman Emily Davis said in response. "George Allen cut the size of the Virginia government by 9 percent while adding 300,000 net new private sector jobs. Tim Kaine made what he called 'significant cuts' to higher education and tried to raise taxes by $4 Billion, all while Virginia lost 100,000 private sector jobs. Virginians are looking for real leadership based on a proven record of creating jobs, not another Washington political salesman who plays loose with the facts."
