Virginia Senate candidate George Allen, a Republican, said opponent Tim Kaine had “the most partisan job in America” as chairman of the Democratic National Committee and can’t run on his record as the state’s former governor.

“Your bottom-line comparison is whose ideas work best,” Allen said during an interview with host Candy Crowley that aired Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” “While I was governor, over 300,000 new jobs were created. While Tim Kaine was trying to raise taxes as governor, over 100,000 jobs were lost in Virginia.”

Both former governors are in a derisive, neck-and-neck campaign that played out Saturday during a debate in which Allen said Kaine was “hand-picked” by President Barack Obama to run for the Senate seat.

“What campaigns are about, I think, are not running down the other,” Allen said during the debate. “There’s contrasts.”
