Ralph Northam

GOP Nice Guys Will Finish Last In 2018

Republicans running in 2018 should expect the same kind of anti-Trump ads and attacks from Democrat-affiliated race-baiters that Ed Gillespie was subjected to, so the time to start thinking about how to get ahead of them is now.

Northam victory based on dishonesty and racial animus

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Yes, Virginia, there is still a Jim Crow. And his name is Ralph Northam, who deployed the most racially charged, dishonest, divisive and incendiary campaign in decades to get elected governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Mr. Northam, nee Crow, won the must-win race Tuesday in which history and decadeslong political trends were so heavily in his favor that it should have been impossible for him to lose.

Shades of Clinton and 2016 have Democrats nervous about Ralph Northam

W. James Antle III, Washington Examiner

In the last gubernatorial race and a 2014 Senate contest in which Gillespie was the Republican nominee, the GOP overperformed the polls at the ballot box. The Democrats won both races anyway, but Northam's lead may not be sturdy enough to withstand Republicans overperforming again.

Does Ralph Northam Think 67% of Virginians are Racists?

David Catron, The American Spectator

If I were voting in tomorrow’s election, I’d have trouble getting past what Northam said about the 67 percent of Virginians who oppose Obamacare: “Why is it that people don’t like the Affordable Care Act? I’ll tell you why, they never accepted who our president was.” Should Virginia be led by a man with such contempt for his constituents? Nope. The Old Dominion can do better than Ralph Northam.

The Democrats’ use of the race card does real harm

Ed Rogers, Washington Post

The Democrats use identity politics to develop their campaigns, organize their party and impose their will via government policy. Qualified people are excluded from service, good candidates are smeared, and Americans are put in danger. But somehow, Democrats think this is progress. They think this is justice. It is what they want to do more of when they are in power.

Ralph Northam’s Legacy of Hate

Jeffrey Lord, The American Spectator

What you actually see in the commercial is the Democratic Party’s past of racial politics chasing its present of racial politics, all presented by a group that is itself based entirely on race. In terms of Virginia’s current politics it is creating for Ralph Northam a legacy of hate. The good news here is that the commercial has stirred a backlash of Virginians and others who simply are not willing to put up with a potential Virginia governor and his allies who make it plain that if elected he will govern by race.

Despicable Anti-Gillespie Ad Backfires After NYC Truck Attack

After an Uzbek Muslim, who apparently entered the United States on a so-called “diversity visa,” ran over and killed at least eight innocent New Yorkers the Latino Victory Fund pulled their sickening ad that featured an Ed Gillespie supporter attempting to run down minority children with a pick-up truck.

Gillespie Gets Pence and CHQ Nod in VA Governor Race

The MAGA agenda is on the line in the Virginia Governor's race, and it is time for conservatives to own the vote. We urge you to talk to your friends, neighbors, family, church members and others in your social circle and ask them to vote for Ed Gillespie for Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Democrats should be terrified by Virginia governor’s race

Salena Zito, New York Post

Democrat Ralph Northam should have a comfortable lead right now. But Northam’s numbers are not up — in fact, the last three public polls show next month’s race within the margin of error. That includes a Monmouth University poll released Tuesday, which gives Gillespie the edge over Northam among likely voters by 48 to 47 percent.
