President Donald Trump on Thursday predicted that Virginia will elect Republicans to its highest ranking positions following the scandals involving Gov. Ralph Northam, Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax and Attorney General Mark R. Herring, all Democrats.
Northam came under fire earlier this month for a photo in his 1984 medical school yearbook that showed a person in blackface with a person in a Ku Klux Klan outfit, and Herring recently admitted to wearing blackface in college. Fairfax was accused of sexually assaulting a woman after the Democratic National Convention in 2004.
“Democrats at the top are killing the Great State of Virginia,” Trump tweeted Thursday morning. “If the three failing pols were Republicans, far stronger action would be taken. Virginia will come back HOME Republican) in 2020!”
Northam denies that he is either person in the photo, while Fairfax claims that the sexual encounter he had with college professor Vanessa Tyson was consensual.
