After Tom Perriello announced his candidacy for Virginia governor on January 4, I remember thinking that if he managed to raise a ton of money fast, put together a super-strong campaign team and received the endorsements of major national figures like Sen. Bernie Sanders, Sen. Elizabeth Warren and President Barack Obama, then it really could be an interesting contest with Ralph Northam, who had a huge head start and most Virginia endorsements, including Gov. McAuliffe’s, locked down. Now, it’s the end of April, and Perriello has raised a lot of money, put together what appears to be a strong campaign, and has received the endorsements of Senator Sanders, many of President Obama’s top administration officials (although not yet Obama himself; we’ll see) and now…Sen. Elizabeth Warren. Check out the video below of Warren endorsing Perriello, stating that “I think that if he’s governor, he would be terrific.” Also, click here for the scoop by The Huffington Post’s Ryan Grim. Oh, and cue the media narrative about how it’s the “progressive vs. centrist wings” (or whatever) of the Democratic Party.
