Rep. Bobby Scott says Tim Kaine on the Democratic ticket offers “a stark contrast between the yelling, division that we had last week to the calm, can’t-we-all-get along we’ll have this week.” Scott also noted that the Republican agenda was “all anti,” while Democrats have a long list of positive things to promote.

Gov. McAuliffe says that Virginia is inclusive, that the “people who represent us are representative of the people who live in our state.” McAuliffe adds that he will be making the announcement that “for the first time in the history of our country we have nominated a woman to be the president of the United States.”

Gov. McAuliffe talks about restoring voting rights to ex felons and undoing the racist roots of denying African Americans’ right to vote. McAuliffe vows that “by the end of this week, I will have restored the rights of all 13,000” ex-felons who had registered to vote, and “by two weeks, all 206,000 will have their rights back.” “So, at the end of the day, I think actually more folks are now going to register to vote.”
