What is this post about? It is your opportunity to consider two highly different points-of-view. The object here is to help you crystalize the main points of contention in Virginia’s 2021 election.
- First, we have a link to the transcript of a campaign speech by former President Barack Obama for former Governor Terry McAuliffe, the Democratic Party’s candidate for the Governor of Virginia.
- Second, we have an editorial by former Vice President Mike Pence. Instead of directly campaigning for the Republican Party’s candidates in Virginia, however, Pence raises the alarm on national issues which have become highly prominent in this year’s Virginia’s elections.
First former President Obama.
President Obama: (00:00)
Ah, hello, Richmond. It is good to be back in Virginia. Although I have to say that unlike some other states, I’m in Virginia all the time, because it’s pretty close by to where I live. It is good to see you on this beautiful day. I am so grateful to the Young Democrats at VCU for hosting us today. It’s good to see some young idealism at work, young activists getting out and doing the work. I could not be prouder of you. It’s thanks to extraordinary young people like you that I was able to get elected to the US Senate. You helped deliver Virginia twice for me. I’ll always love you for it. You delivered for Terry McAuliffe, and now I’m asking you to do it one more time by electing Terry the next governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Second, former Vice President Pence.
Nine months into the Joe Biden presidency, radical left Democrats are using their newfound power to persecute average Americans whose only crime is daring to think for themselves.
Consider the events of just the past few weeks.Continued => Patriots must speak out for our students, our families and our freedom (washingtontimes.com)
