Conservatives from across the U-S are at the convention center at National Harbor for the annual Conservative Political Action Conference. Virginia gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli kicked off the event.

Amongst the like-minded crowd, the Attorney General wears his battle scars from the Obama Administration with pride. Besides unsuccessfully challenging the healthcare law, he also took on the E-P-A& winning a suit blocking the agency from regulating storm water runoff in Fairfax County.

In touting that suit Cuccinelli was happy to take a swipe at the E-P-A to the glee of the audience.
"Or as I like to call it the Employment Prevention Agency," he said.
 
Cuccinelli also took swipes at his likely Democratic opponent Terry McAuliffe whom he called an unabashed liberal. Though McAuliffe is gladly basking in the support of three former Republican state legislators who endorsed him on Wednesday.
