The two front- running candidates
for governor agree the state needs to
invest more in higher education.

However, sharp contrasts were
drawn over whether illegal immigrants
should be granted in- state tuition.

Tim Kaine says yes if they're
actively pursuing legal status.

Jerry Kilgore says no.

He doesn't think illegal
immigrants should reap the same
benefits as legal residents.

Meanwhile, Tim Kaine says
creating a college in southside would

Last year, an average household
