RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - Republican candidate for governor Kirk Cox has unveiled his first formal proposal on Thursday.

If elected, he’s planning a $50 million initiative to help law enforcement.

Cox says he wants to raise the salary for state troopers and sheriff’s deputies.

He says securing the safety of communities is the way to bring back jobs and businesses after the pandemic.

On Wednesday, former governor Terry McAuliffe rolled out his first objective if he’s elected governor: A $2 billion education plan.
