Tom Perriello, Ralph Northam to Participate in Progressive Forum on May 2 in Arlington


Starting to see and hear about Democratic gubernatorial debates popping up. Here’s the first one – a FORUM, actually, whatever that means – I’ve received a flier for. Check it out!

On Tuesday, May 2nd, Progressive and labor groups from across the Commonwealth will host a forum with candidates Ralph Northam and Tom Perriello to discuss Virginia’s 2017 Governor’s race. The forum Chair and Moderator is Sandra J. Klassen, a progressive activist who led Virginia Democrats backing Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) at the Democratic National Convention. This forum will give both Democratic candidates for Governor a chance to share their positions, goals, and plans for Virginia’s highest office. Candidates will also respond to questions from progressive voters on topics ranging from income and wealth inequality, money in politics, unions and collective bargaining, climate change, healthcare, social justice, voting rights, public education and other important issues facing the Commonwealth.

    The things we learn.

    Quote from The Bullshitting Elephant:

    — quote

    The Northam campaign is petrified of Virginia’s progressive blog Blue Virginia.
    In fact, the case can be made that Blue Virginia’s founder and
    president, Lowell Feld, defacto runs the Northam campaign. They are
    scared of what Lowell might write about them so they toe his line.

    Lowell runs the show.

    • Yeah, that’s too stupid to even respond to or acknowledge in any way. Let these people live in their alternate/fact-free realities, I guess…
