SWING AND MISS: Big Democrats Couldn’t Save McAuliffe from Losing in Virginia

Big names in the Democrat party couldn’t save Democrat Terry McAuliffe’s reelection campaign.

Joe Biden, Barack Obama, Kamala Harris, Stacey Abrams and others showed up in Virginia.

They all stepped up and went to bat for McAuliffe.

“The result was a giant whiff,” Fox News reports. “None excited voters enough to drag McAuliffe across home plate.”

During Harris’ trip, she warned voters that a loss for McAuliffe could tarnish Democrat chances in the 2022 congressional midterms and the 2024 presidential election.

“What happens in Virginia will in large part determine what happens in 2022, 2024 and on,” Harris said.

“You gonna bring this home, right? Yes you are,” she added.

Biden told Virginians to cast their votes for McAuliffe because he has “a proven track record from his time as governor of the state from 2014 until 2018.”

Biden repeated a false claim from McAuliffe that Youngkin “was seeking to ban certain books,” Fox News added.

Obama went to Virginia for McAuliffe and urged voters “to get fired up inside and then go vote.”

From Fox News:

Stacey Abrams, who lost the Georgia gubernatorial election in 2018, also vouched for McAuliffe’s candidacy, campaigning for him in a number of prominently Black churches in Virginia.

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

Biden predicted Tuesday that Democrats were “going to win in Virginia,” noting that “it is about who shows up.”

But it wasn’t to be, and he failed to make it happen.
