With just one month until Election Day, Virginia Democrat Ralph Northam has panicked and is now running away from his campaign’s central message of attacking President Donald Trump. Just weeks ago, Northam called the President a “dangerous man,” a “narcissistic maniac,” and proclaimed that the President should stay “on the other side of the Potomac.”
But now, struggling in the polls, Northam is singing a different tune on the President, while committing a major flip-flop in the process. Northam released a new TV ad this morning stating that “I will work with him,” a stark departure from his campaign’s consistent rhetoric on the campaign trail against the President.
Not only is this a major reversal of messaging for Northam’s campaign, but it’s also a direct copy and paste of what Republican gubernatorial nominee Ed Gillespie has said all along about working with the President for the benefit of Virginia, which Northam and Democrats have repeatedly attacked him for doing.
Unfortunately for Northam, Virginians won’t be fooled by his desperate, last-minute attempt to flip-flop on his campaign’s central message. Northam continues to show a disturbing lack of core principles as he proves once again that he will say or do anything in an attempt to dupe voters.
