As the race to see who will be Virginia’s next Governor heats up, President Trump has thrown his support behind one candidate.
The president took to social media to announce his support for Ed Gillespie, who is running to be the Governor of Virginia against Democrat Ralph Northam.
Trump criticized Northam for his Senate vote, which was cast in favor of sanctuary cities and their leniency towards illegal aliens who are arrested for crimes.
Ralph Northam,who is running for Governor of Virginia,is fighting for the violent MS-13 killer gangs & sanctuary cities. Vote Ed Gillespie!

Northam has been criticized for softening his stance on immigration previously, while Gillespie has maintained a tough-on-immigration policy.
