“Whatever happens in Virginia, the consequences will be huge.” Paul Krugman said in a recent New York Times op-ed.
President Obama understands how crucial the November 7th races in Virginia are. Last week, he made one of his first public appearances at a rally in support of Virginia Governor Ralph Northman, and here’s what he said:
“We need you to take this seriously because our democracy is at stake, and it’s at stake right here in Virginia,” …”You are going to send a message, all across this great country and all around the world what it is that America stands for.”
The stakes couldn’t be higher — with many races tied and Nov 7 fast approaching — Virginia is the state of both the despicable Charlottesville demonstrations and the withholding of Medicare expansion from millions.
