2017 Virginia Election Preview with Gov. Jim Gilmore and Norman Leahy

Former Virginia Governor Jim Gilmore, also elected as Virginia’s attorney general, and president of American Opportunity along with Norman Leahy, columnist at The Washington Post and reporter for Real Clear Investigations, joins J.R. to preview and predict the 2017 Virginia General Election. We take a look back at the key moments for each campaign – governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, and Virginia House of Delegates – and also analyze their strengths and weaknesses. Gov. Gilmore also looks back on his campaigns and offers insights on how elections have evolved. We also discuss some other political heavy-weights, like former Gov. Doug Wilder and U.S. Senator John Warner and their role this election cycle. And, Gov. Gilmore reflects on redistricting (some very interesting thoughts).
