A leaked audio of Virginia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe telling the truth about the sinking ship that is the Joe Biden administration rocked DC this week.
Mcauliffe was a key fundraiser for the Clinton machine before running and winning the Virginia Governorship a few years ago.
He wants the job again and is in a neck-and-neck race with Republican challenger Glenn Youngkin. But Virginia is no longer a ‘purple state’ and has become reliably Dem so if Terry loses here it means doom for the Dems nationally in 2022.
While McAuliffe was at a virtual campaign rally this week, according to CNN he thought the meeting was private, he admitted Joe Biden is an anchor weighing him down in his attempt to win his election.
“We are facing a lot of headwinds from Washington. As you know, the president is unpopular today, unfortunately, here in Virginia, so we have got to plow through.
A spokesperson for the McAuliffe campaign told Politico: “Terry’s point was clearly that Democrats can’t take anything for granted and must turn out to vote this year:
“Glenn Youngkin is running on a divisive, Trumpian agenda that puts election conspiracy theories and banning abortion first.”
The Virginia gubernatorial race is shaping up as a bellwether for the midterms and will help determine whether Democrats see Biden as an asset or a liability in 2022.
McAuliffe has repeatedly tried to distance himself from Biden and the Democratic Congress — for instance, at a recent debate, McAuliffe said that the proposed $3.5 trillion price tag of Dems’ reconciliation package was “too high.”
Even so, that’s a tall task, considering that McAuliffe is longtime friends with the president, and, of course, is the former chair of the DNC.
(Also, VP KAMALA HARRIS recently headlined a fundraiser for McAuliffe, and second gentleman DOUG EMHOFF campaigned for him in Loudoun County over the weekend.)
