What Might Have Been

If we would have known about Governor Ralph Northam’s blackface and other behaviors as a young man, then perhaps he would have never run in the primary at all or he would have been soundly beaten by Tom Perriello, and Perriello, a true progressive, could be our governor today.

So it is not so much the blackface that is galling (it is awful) but that Democratic voters didn’t have the necessary information to make the right decision.

Democrats of Virginia must stay informed, get involved and vote in November to turn the legislature of Virginia blue.
