Gillespie decided to attack the Washington Post in an official statement for some reason today:



I don't know if attacking the newspaper with the largest circulation in Virginia, with big influence in NOVA is the best way to go.

Gillespie and the VA GOP seem to be trying their hardest to piss away a pretty winnable race

I think it will be fairly close with Northam winning later into the night.

I think it will be around Hillary's margin in 2016 give or take 1% or 2% on election night.

Sounds about right, probably flips over to D at 86 or 88% [which is also where it flipped for Obama] instead of 92%.

Gillespie came out in favor of Tom Cotton's plan to restrict LEGAL immigration as part of a DACA solution.



Does he realize Virginia isn't Arkansas?

I mean the Post is left-leaning, but this shows how strong Northam is honestly. Gillespie clearly has seen internal polling suggesting he is facing enthusiasm / approval / support gaps and has to make a move somewhere, so he is throwing out red meat for the base and hoping that left-leavers in NOVA don't notice / care.

Smart money says they will though and he loses enough moderates to take a fatal hit in Fairfax. Likely / lean D tbh

Why does he even mention crime in a post about DACA? DACA enrollees pass a background check and have no criminal records...

You raise a good point. If Gillespie is confident in his support from the base, he's not showing it wih the ads or policy positions he's releasing.

Gillespie could still win parts of NOVA. He could win some of the ancestral Republicans that are still there and could win some Independents as well.

This race is Tilt D/Tossup. Gillespie is not Cuccinelli.

I think Vogel being the LG pick could help Ed in NoVA.

However, the president is very unpopular, and this will hurt Gillespie regardless.

Gillespie has been in a "pick your poison" moment since he nearly got beaten by Stewart. He can either go through the barest motions of keeping Stewart/Trump voters in line, and risk alienating moderates in NoVA, or he can go relatively NeverTrump (as he was somewhat essentially until he became more neutral) and risk alienating Stewart voters and those lose by a comfortable margin. As someone who will likely vote for Gillespie, he has a very difficult choice at his hands that could easily doom his campaign either way.

I'd say Gillespie is trying to muddy the waters for now and hope for the best in November.

I'm feeling better now ever since Gillespie has started to move right. I think this could sink him in nova, and cause minimal change in rural areas. Back to Lean D.

yeah he done. his path was being a moderate swampy establishment type republican that could get enough votes out of nova combined with the more conservative/trumplican voters. its going to get real hard for a republican to win in Virginia unless they moderate for those nova suburbs

Northam has twice as much cash as Gillespie, after recovering from primary

Northam previously was down to Gillespie 2 to 1.

Quote
In July and August, Northam raised $7.2 million, while Gillespie took in $3.7 million in the same period.

That left Northam, the sitting lieutenant governor, with $5.6 million in cash to Gillespie’s $2.6 million as of Aug. 31, according to data released Saturday by the non-profit Virginia Public Access Project.

Northam’s summer fundraising erases a 2-1 cash advantage that Gillespie held immediately after the June 13 primary. Northam spent most of his early money on the primary contest to defeat former congressman Tom Perriello for the Democratic nomination while Gillespie had conserved funds in his primary match against Corey A. Stewart.

Gillespie probably has the same chance of winning this race as Doug Jones in AL. Right now I think this race will be relatively close (with Northam still winning, obviously), but I wouldn't be surprised if Gillespie lost by 7-9 or so on election day.

IMO Fairfax and Herring are going to win fairly easily, even if Gillespie somehow wins the gubernatorial race by <0.5.

Vogel is a strong candidate, I actually think she has the highest chance of winning out of the three GOPer's on the statewide ticket.
