Biden, Obama, Harris all beat McAuliffe in Virginia

The Democratic Party’s leading light – including President Joe Biden, former President Barack Obama, Vice President Kamala Harris and voting rights activist Stacey Abrams – all went up in arms in Virginia for Terry McAulife’s gubernatorial campaign, and the result was a huge smell.

No enthusiastic voters enough to drag McAuliffe across the home plate.

Meanwhile, Republican Glenn Youngkin mostly campaigned on his own and ended up seizing the governor’s mansion in Richmond.

At a campaign stop for McAuliffe last month, Biden urged Virginiaians to cast their votes for McAuliffe, insisting that the chairman of the former Democratic National Committee had a documented track record from his time as governor of the state from 2014 to 2018.

‘He delivered’

“You do not have to wonder what kind of governor Terry will be because you know what an amazing governor he was,” Biden said. “It wasn’t just because of what he promised. It was what he delivered.”

Biden also reiterated a false claim by McAuliffe that Youngkin “sought to ban certain books.”

Obama traveled to Virginia to stop for McAuliffe late last month, urging voters “to be fired inside and then go and vote.”

‘Bring this home’

Harris also took a trip to the Commonwealth, warning state voters that a loss to McAuliffe could tarnish Democrats’ chances in the 2022 congressional midterm elections and 2024 presidential election.

“What happens in Virginia will largely determine what happens in 2022, 2024 and beyond,” Harris said as she campaigned for McAuliffe. “You take this home, don’t you? Yes, you do.”

‘Action of faith’

Stacey Abrams, who lost the gubernatorial election in Georgia in 2018, also vouched for McAulife’s candidacy and campaigned for him in a number of prominent black churches in Virginia.

“Voting is an act of faith,” Abrams said at the time, urging state churchgoers to “do the job.”

Biden predicted Tuesday that Democrats would “win in Virginia,” noting that “it’s about who shows up.”

But it should not be, and he failed to make it happen.
