Biden’s visit represents final attempt to drag McAuliffe over the edge, says Hume
democratic Virginia Governor Granthshala News senior political analyst Brit Hume said Tuesday that the defeat of candidate Terry McAuliffe could mean a “political earthquake” for Democrats in 2022 – and the candidate is “fearing”.
President Biden joins McAuliffe in campaigning early Tuesday as polls show Virginia Gubernatorial election face-off between former governor and Republican candidate Glenn Youngkin.
Hume said Biden’s visit represents a final attempt to drag McAuliffe over the edge as panic rages among Democrats in the dark blue state.
Hume told “Tucker Carlson Tonight” “This is a candidate who is scared, very scared, and running for good reason.”
Hume pointed to McAuliffe’s repeated false statements about the number of coronavirus cases and hospitalizations that cost him four Pinocchios. Washington Post.
“He has made one mistake after another, including his claim just weeks ago that he did not want parents to tell the school board what to teach children. This is a widely shared view in the Democratic Party but not widely shared politically across the body,” Hume said.

“Independents don’t like it and Republicans clearly don’t like it. It was as big a political surprise as I think I’ve seen in a long time, so he’s in trouble.”
“He can get it out—Virginia is a very blue state,” Hume said, “but he’s worried, he’s scared, and the president’s presence has only recently appeared.”
former President Barack Obama joined McAuliffe a day earlier in Richmond, where he featured Youngkin’s As concerns about Critical Race Theory”Fake Trumped-Up Culture War“and “Fake Outrage”.
Hume said Democrats are sending big guns to campaign for McAuliffe because “if he loses, it will be seen as a political earthquake, and if Democrats weren’t already concerned that with him in 2022.” What is about to happen, so they will be scared if it happens.”
