McAuliffe won the Democratic Party and won for governor

RICHMOND, Va. – Terry McAuliffe, a former Virginia governor and longtime Democrat, won the party’s nomination for a second term in office on Tuesday.

McAuliffe will clash with GOP candidate and political newcomer Glenn Youngkin in the November general election.

Virginia is the only state in the country to have an open race for governor this year, and the race is expected to be closely monitored as a barometer of voter sentiment in every party running in the midterm elections. Virginia Republicans have not won a statewide contest in a decade.

McAuliffe, a longtime fundraiser for the Democratic Party and a close friend of Bill and Hillary Clinton, served from 2014 to 2018. Like all the governors of Virginia, he was forbidden to ask for consecutive terms. He jumped into the race in December after deciding in 2019 to run in the presidential election.

McColiff, 64, focused his campaign on the need to take bold action to address inequalities in teachers ’salaries and education funding in Virginia. He also promised to work to accelerate the increase in the minimum wage in Virginia to $ 15 by 2024, to protect access to abortion, and to ban assault weapons and high-powered magazines.

He won the approval of Governor Ralph Northam, who said McAuliffe was the best fit to pull Virginia out of the economic recovery from the pandemic and to confirm the transformational changes the Democrats have made since taking full control of the state goverlovebylifent in the 2019 election.

McAuliffe also raised funds from other candidates: state Sen. Jennifer McClellan, former del Jennifer Carol Foy, Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax and Del Lee Carter. Since the jump, he has supported many elected officials across the Commonwealth, including many black legislators.

She drew criticism from several progressive voters who criticized her work on energy and criminal justice and saw her as standing in the way of Carol Foy and McClellan, each of whom is trying to become the nation’s first black female governor.

Republicans chose their candidates for this year’s statewide competition during a multi-platform convention in May. Youngkin, a former executive at an investment firm, has promised to use his personal wealth to run his election campaign. He will join Lieutenant-Governor nominee Winsom Sears and Attorney General nominee Jason Miyares on a GOP ticket in the fall.
