"Va. Democrat Northam ramps up energy in bid for governor, calls Trump a narcissistic maniac"

As a voter who lives in Maryland, I suddenly desperately feel the need to find a way to vote for this candidate for Virginia Governor -- his pitch is rather pithy!

Virginia Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam (D), vying to be the next governor, is often called low-key. Genteel. Even dull.

Not so Friday night at the annual St. Patrick’s Day fundraiser for U.S. Rep. Gerald E. Connolly (D-Va.) that drew about 1,200 people — and every Democrat running for statewide office — to the ballroom of the Kena Shriners Temple in Fairfax County.

In fiery remarks that sometimes bordered on shouting, Northam twice denounced President Trump as a “narcissistic maniac” in a four-minute speech frequently interrupted by cheers from a crowd decked out in green hats, ties and shirts and a smattering of blue Northam stickers.

“We have a fight on our hands, and I want to let you know tonight, I’m ready for the fight,” Northam said. “We need to make sure that that narcissistic maniac doesn’t come anywhere close to Virginia, and we need to make sure together that we take Virginia to the next level.”

(bold emphasis added)


It might be careless to talk about him so enthusiastically when I know nothing else about him, but for just this moment let me say:

May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light.
May good luck pursue you each morning and night.*
