See below for video of the remarks by Corey Stewart yesterday that resulted in “Danville officials walk[ing] out of a speech by senatorial candidate Corey Stewart in Hampton on Monday morning after he singled out the city for its economic woes.” Also check out the comment by Virginia Republican Rollin Reisinger (former campaign manager for Tea Partier Susan Stimpson; former consultant to the Rob Bell for Attorney General campaign; former consultant to the Jill Vogel for Lt. Governor campaign; former consultant to the E.W. Jackson for Lt. Governor campaign) – “Corey Stewart’s ‘rebranding’ isn’t off to a successful start.”
“Rebranding,” by the way, is a reference to the ridiculous Washington Post article (I’m not even going to link to that trash) the other day, which desperately tried to create a (false) “horse race” narrative about Corey Stewart – who has continued to run the promised “vicious,” “ruthless” campaign, hurling wild accusations and smears, continuing to employ this virulent racist and misogynist, etc. – supposedly attempting a “rebrand.” That WaPo story was the corporate media at its worst. In fact, Corey hasn’t changed at all, and yesterday, leaders of Danville demonstrated what they thought of that fact by…walking out. Also, as Danville Vice Mayor Lee Vogler stated after he walked out following Corey’s “kind of bizarre” statements, “He talked about his own county, but the only city he singled out and trashed was Danville.” Yep, that’s Corey Stewart for ya!
