RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — A full year into his term as governor, Democrat Terry McAuliffe says he has a nearly perfect track record.The flamboyant former Washington political insider says he has far surpassed his predecessors in luring new investment toVirginia and while keeping his campaign promises to promote liberal social issues.The governor also shrugs off the failure of his top legislative priority, passing Medicaid expansion, and says he’s gotten “95 percent of the things I promised I would get done.” But Republican lawmakers say McAuliffe lacks a clear agenda other than luring new investment to the state and has put partisanpolitics before substantive policy.
