The Virginia governor’s race has gotten nasty as Democratic candidate Ralph Northam has pulled ahead in a recent poll over former GOP chair Ed Gillespie to a 17 point lead in his race.
Gillespie went to the Republican race-baiting playbook and unleashed an ad insinuating Northam has ties to the MS-13 street gang in a desperate and despicable attempt to try to cut into that lead.
It’s about time that the Democrats hit back against this BS, and they went WWE (hallelujah) with their own ad paid for by the Eva Longoria founded Latino Victory Project (told y’all don’t sleep on this Tejana) .
And Eva, please consider coming back home to Texas and running for the US Senate
It hits the GOP where it hurts, in their bigoted base. It shows kids of color dreaming about being chased by a man in a truck with Confederate flags and a Gillespie bumper sticker on it. Just as the kids are cornered and about to be run over they wake up as the announcer asks the question, “Is this what Donald Trump and Ed Gillespie mean by the American Dream?”
We’ll see what transpires on November 7.
