Democrats Continue To Panic & Worry About Ralph Northam’s Lackluster Campaign

With less than a month to go until Election Day in Virginia, Democrat gubernatorial candidate Ralph Northam’s lackluster campaign continues to worry his party

The RGA writes

With less than a month to go until Election Day in Virginia, Democrat gubernatorial candidate Ralph Northam’s lackluster campaign continues to worry his party as the election remains a “margin-of-error race.” A new report by Governing Magazine notes that Northam still “has yet to catch fire among many Democrats” and continues to face “complaints from environmentalists” for his stance on Virginia pipeline projects. This comes less than week after the Daily Beast reported that Northam’s own campaign staff have been “openly panicked” about his prospects in November, even revealing to reporters how worried they are. As alarms continue to sound among Democrats over Northam’s struggles less than four weeks from the election, their party shows little confidence in him as the race heads into its home stretch.

Republicans in the commonwealth like to point out that their candidates often finish ahead of their polling results — including Gillespie himself, who wasn’t considered a factor in the 2014 U.S. Senate race but ended up finishing within a single percentage point of unseating Democrat Mark Warner.…

…Northam has adopted progressive positions on issues such as criminal justice reform and the minimum wage, but he has faced complaints from environmentalists, notably that he has failed to condemn two natural gas pipelines that have been proposed in the state.
