With just weeks left in the 2013 gubernatorial race in Virginia, Republican candidate Ken Cuccinelli has a new TV ad that questions the seriousness of his Democratic opponent, Terry McAuliffe. "What's Terry McAuliffe offering Virginia families?" the voiceover asks. "False, misleading attacks; massive, wasteful spending; and $1,700 dollars in higher taxes every year."

"Terry McAuliffe," the voiceover continues. "Deeply unserious." Watch below:

A recent NBC News/Marist poll found McAuliffe leading in the race by 8 points with 46 percent support, followed by Cuccinelli with 38 percent and Libertarian party candidate Robert Sarvis with 9 percent. According to the Real Clear Politics poll average, McAuliffe has a 7.4-point lead over Cuccinelli, and the Republican hasn't led in a single poll since July.
