Simply put? Gillespie didn’t have to change who he was to win. Northam did, and that’s a problem for the Democrats moving towards November.
Democrats are clearly angry at Republicans. It’s also clear that Republicans are, too.
Gillespie and Vogel appear to have things comfortably in hand; Perriello vs. Northam is a different matter entirely…
For the Republicans, it is starting to look more and more like George Allen’s primary victory in 2014.
Not a small endorsement, one that will go out to tens of thousands of pro-life churches and parishes around Virginia and millions more pro-life conservatives.
How stiff is the ask?
I want to give 1000 cool points for the person who pulled this off.
…not a bad start for a race that will cost anywhere from $20-30 million.
This weekend removed all doubt as to who the frontrunner is in the Democratic gubernatorial nod. Question is, can Northam seal the deal?
Yes, Virginia… there is an honorable middle.
