Debate over Increasing Virginia's Taxes Heats Up

Today's Washington Post identifies the advertising campaigns that have been launched by both sides in the tax debate currently going on in the General Assembly. The slickest seems to be the group supporting the tax increase plan supported by Governor Mark Warner (D), which involved sending out 670,000 glossy mailers. The anti-tax effort takes a different tack, however. The prime example in this campaign, according to the Post article, are ads "criticizing Republican lawmakers who are on the fence or who support the major tax plans." If the 2002 sales tax referendum is any indication, the pro-tax forces will outspend the anti-tax forces by several factors.
