President Trump Makes Key Endorsement in Virginia Governor Race

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.

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

The Lieutenant Governor, who previously called President Trump a “narcissistic maniac,” said that he expected the president to mention him on Twitter, which he said was “despicable.”
