The Democrats thought they had Virginia all locked up as a blue state, but the polls in the gubernatorial race between former Gov. Terry McAuliffe and Republican Glenn Youngkin are just about even.
So McAuliffe has called in Barack Obama, who will appear in Richmond Saturday. Not clear if he is going to drive more Republicans than Democrats to vote, but McAuliffe thinks it’s worth the chance. And McAuliffe desperately needs high black turnout, so he is also calling in Stacey Abrams, who on Sunday will lead a “souls to the polls” drive.
Folks, I'm excited to announce that President Obama will be joining me in Richmond NEXT SATURDAY October 23rd for a GOTV event. Sign up to learn more here: https://t.co/ktMja6QqK7 pic.twitter.com/UvD88uQKD2
