McAuliffe becomes Democratic nominee for Governor

RICHMOND — Yesterday afternoon the Democratic Party of Virginia informed the Virginia State Board of Elections that it has certified the petition signatures submitted by all five statewide campaigns. Terry McAuliffe is the only candidate who qualified for the 2013 gubernatorial primary ballot and becomes the Democratic nominee for Governor. Senator Ralph Northam and Aneesh Chopra qualified to be Democratic candidates for Lieutenant Governor and Senator Mark Herring and Justin Fairfax qualified to be Democratic candidates for Attorney General. All move on to the June 11th primary.

“We believe that this is the most signatures any candidate has collected for Governor in Virginia history,” said DPVA Chair Charniele Herring. “The momentum from volunteers and outpouring of support across the Commonwealth is a true sign of the energy behind Terry McAuliffe’s campaign.

“Virginians deserve a Governor who will focus on mainstream ideas to make Virginia better for business, not implementing his own divisive ideological agenda.”
