Virginia had rejected McAuliffe's bid for electric car factory incentives

Small electric car startup GreenTech Automotive, with Virginia Gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe as Chairman, had asked Virginia for incentives to build a factory in that state, which Virginia rejected.

Last summer, GreenTech Automotive launched manufacturing of a small two-seater neighborhood electric vehicle in Tunica, Mississippi, an event that would barely have deserved notice if it weren't for the caliber of the politicians who were at the launch event. The company chairman, Terry McAuliffe was formerly Chair of the Democratic National Committee and an aide in the Clinton Administration, on-hand was former President Bill Clinton as well as former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour who is also former Chair of the Republican National Committee. Now, as McAuliffe has launched a new bid to become Governor of Virginia, GreenTech Automotive is being reexamined and recent news reports found that the state of Virginia thought GTA did not have a viable business plan.
