Murphy gets to campaign with Obama. Guadagno's not impressed
Oct 23, 2017, 03:54
Mr Obama's remarks came on the same day as former president George W Bush denounced bigotry in Trump-era American politics, warning that the rise of "nativism", isolationism and conspiracy theories have clouded the nation's true identity.
But in a nod to the 2016 presidential election, Obama called on Democrats to run through the finish line and help elect Murphy in one of the highest-profile races of the 2017 calendar.
Former US President Barack Obama accused Democrats of "sleeping through the election" in a speech at a rally in Richmond for the Democratic gubernatorial candidate for Virginia today.
Gillespie spokesman David Abrams said: "It's no surprise President Obama would level Lt. Gov. Northam's attacks against Ed at a Northam campaign event". Obama goes to Chicago to head up his first Obama Foundation leadership summit on October 31 and November 1. "Thats folks looking 50 years back", he told a cheering crowd at the invite-only event. But when all is said and done, Virginia voters will cast their ballots based on the policies and records of Ralph Northam and Ed Gillespie. In an August NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, 51 percent of Americans said they have a favorable opinion of Obama, while 35 percent had a negative opinion.
"The question for 2018 isn't going to be how much of his time our candidates want, but how much time President Obama can afford to give", said Jesse Ferguson, a Democratic strategist with deep ties to Virginia politics.
Obama's re-emergence comes as President Trump has taken aim at various parts of his legacy, including the Iran nuclear agreement and the Affordable Care Act and as the controversy around Trump's interactions with families of fallen USA soldiers persists. "You won't be able to unite them later if that's how you start".
"You know Michelle and I get the same commercials in D.C. that y'all do here", Obama said.
Gillespie, who has received the endorsement of President Donald Trump on Twitter, spent Thursday at numerous campaign events in Hampton Roads.
"We shouldn't use the most painful parts of our history just to score political points", Obama said after referencing Charlottesville and saying the country will "rise up by learning from the past and by listening to each other".
Some of the politics we see, we thought we put that to bed. When Mr. Obama mentioned Gillespie's ads and the crowd booed, the former president said that wasn't the right tactic.
The first black president offered himself as proof that the country could move forward, telling the crowd in Richmond, the former Capitol of the Confederacy, that he is a distant relative to Confederate President Jefferson Davis on his mother's side. "I'll bet he's spinning in his grave". They continued in unison while Murphy clapped along on stage, leading Obama to jest about that idea's questionable legality and family implications.
The former president, who won Virginia in 2008 and 2012, said he'll always have "warm, fond memories of Richmond" because one of the first major elected officials outside IL who backed him was U.S. Sen.
Thursday's rally was created to energize voters who favor democrats in an off year election.
