Democrat Northam Removes Running Mate from Ads to Appease Virginia Union Supporters

Quote:
As Election Day quickly approaches in Virginia’s gubernatorial race, Democratic candidate Ralph Northam appears to have scrubbed his African-American running mate, Justin Fairfax, from Northern Virginia campaign fliers, in an appeal to big labor unions. Here’s a tweet with an image of the two fliers side by side:


Quote:
Local Virginia paper the Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that Northam chose to remove Fairfax from some of his campaign literature at the request of the Laborers’ International Union of North America, whose spokesman claimed the lieutenant-governor candidate “wasn’t supporting [unions] on the issues.”

Specifically, Fairfax refuses to support the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline, a planned natural-gas line that would span 600 miles from West Virginia to North Carolina, crossing through much of Virginia on its way. Despite noting his own environmental concerns, Northam has reluctantly chosen to support the pipeline project, presumably because it is popular with Virginia residents for its economic potential.

Fairfax, however, has made no such concessions, and Northam’s campaign is clearly concerned that his failure to even begrudgingly accept the pipeline will endanger the Democratic ticket with powerful union voices in the state, and among voters who ally themselves with big labor.
It's pretty clear that he wasn't removed BECAUSE of his skin color, but nomatter...Had a Republican removed this guy...even if he murdered 12 people and gave another 17 AIDS...the left and the media would've hung the Republican up by his thumbs and destroyed his career, family, livelihood and possibly his pets...

But this guy's a "(D)"?...Oh....Ho hum...

Not in Virginia they don't. Each office is a separate vote. It's not uncommon to have a split government.
