Virginia's McAuliffe boosts Wallops Island commercial spaceport in gubernatorial bid | Spaceports | testing |

Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe officially launched his campaign today in front of a crowd of about 200 in Norfolk laying out his transportation plan and vision for how the next Governor of Virginia can help strengthen and diversify the Commonwealth's economy. 

"We must continue to look to the future and provide strong support to our spaceport at Wallops Island. There will be a few states that capture the emerging commercial space industry, and we must ensure that the Commonwealth helps lead the way on this new industry," noted McAuliffe.
