Video: Virginia Lt. Governor Forum – Justin Fairfax (D) vs. Jill Vogel (R)


Excellent job by Justin Fairfax. Terrible job by Jill Vogel, whose answer on climate change was pathetic (it’s “real” – no shit Sherlock! – but nothing about switching to clean energy ASAP); who dodged every which way to claim that her mandatory transvaginal ultrasound bill wasn’t an embarrassment, assault on women’s reproductive freedom, etc.; who believes that we don’t need any limits on the Koch brothers and corporate interests (e.g., monopoly utilities like Dominion Power) buying our elections; who is a gun rights absolutist; who loves badmouthing Virginia’s economy, just like her ticketmate “Enron Ed” Gillespie; etc.
