See below for key quotes from Gov. Terry McAuliffe:
“I can remember when I was governor, I inherited a very tough economy, the Great Recession, the Republicans had put sequestration in place. Really hurt us badly. It was Joe Biden who I worked with every day, as governor, to help rebuild that Virginia economy. We had Ebola, I worked with Joe Biden every single day. And to have this president, Donald Trump, say ‘it’s not my responsibility,’ basically ‘you are on your own. Governors, you figure out yourselves.’ So the timing for me is very important. The contrast between what happened in the Obama-Biden White House and now what’s happening in the Trump White House.”
“The trajectory that Trump is going on, the only people who will be supporting Donald Trump are his family and those who work on his campaign! They are pretty much the same people nowadays. So there’s not a lot of movement there for Trump voters.”
