Northam Stands By While VA Dem Calls Republicans “Evil”

When given the opportunity to denounce the “evil” comment, Northam declined.

Less than a week before Election Day in the Virginia gubernatorial race, a Democrat State Senator called Republican voters “evil.” The comment, from State Sen. Barbara Favola, came during an Arlington County Democratic Committee monthly meeting Wednesday night.

According to the Washington Free Beacon, the meeting was also attended by the entire statewide Democratic ticket: gubernatorial candidate Ralph Northam, Lt. Governor candidate Justin Fairfax, and Attorney General candidate Mark Herring.

When given the opportunity to denounce the “evil” comment, Northam declined.

Here’s more from the Free Beacon:

Barbara Favola, a Democratic state senator who represents Arlington, Va., castigated Virginia's Republican candidates and their supporters on Wednesday night, saying "they're evil" and "we're the good guys."

"What my colleagues didn't really tell you is how dangerous it will be if the other side wins. They're evil, we're the good guys," Favola said, as the room erupted with laughter, applause and cheers.

"Every one of you is an angel," she added.

The comments come on the heels of a controversial ad released by the Latino Victory Fund that condemns supporters of Republican gubernatorial candidate Ed Gillespie as racists. “The ad was strongly criticized by some,” writes the Free Beacon, “including by local media and a Muslim civil rights activist…”

Northam initially defended the ad, although his campaign has since attempted to unsuccessfully walk that support back.
