Obama Is Back To Fight Trump In The Race For Virginia Governor

Source: Newsweek Magazine




BY CONOR GAFFEY ON 10/12/17 AT 9:54 AM

Virginia’s gubernatorial election is fast morphing from a run-of-the-mill state vote into a battle of presidential brands: Former President Barack Obama vs. President Donald Trump.

Obama is due to make his long-awaited return to national politics at a campaign rally in the state capital Richmond on October 19. Obama is backing the Democratic candidate, Ralph Northam, to succeed his party colleague Terry McAuliffe, who is barred from seeking a second consecutive term under state law.

Obama’s intervention will come weeks after Trump threw his hat into the race behind Republican challenger Ed Gillespie. Trump tweeted an endorsement of Gillespie on Friday, which included the claim that Northam was “fighting for the violent MS-13 killer gangs & sanctuary cities.”




(Gillespie’s campaign has run attack advertisements that try to tie Northam’s support for sanctuary cities for illegal immigrants to gang violence by MS-13, which is composed largely of Central Americans. One of these advertisements showed images of Northam interspersed with tattooed faces of men who were not MS-13 members, but members of a rival gang photographed in an El Salvador prison.)

4. Unfortunately he's less ethical than Oswald.

You can tell that because he got an endorsement from President Turd.
