From the Leslie Cockburn for Congress campaign:
RAPPAHANNOCK, VA–Yesterday, a video was released of Denver Riggleman, Republican nominee for Congress in Virginia’s 5th district, dodging a simple question: if he is going to campaign with the Republican nominee for Senate in Virginia, Corey Stewart. When asked if he would campaign with Stewart, Riggleman says in the video that, “it depends,” before rushing away.
“Riggleman’s refusal to answer the question demonstrates both the confusion in the Republican Party and Riggleman’s inability to take a stand,” said Leslie Cockburn. She added, “Since he did not specify what his decision would depend on, one has to wonder what will it take for Riggleman to give a straight answer.”
Recent reports show that Stewart strongly endorsed white nationalist Paul Nehlen long after his views were known. Stewart also met with Jason Kessler, the organizer of the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville last year.
