The 2017 Virginia Republican ticket joins J.R. for a comprehensive look at the campaign as it heads into the homestretch. Ed Gillespie for governor, State Sen. Jill Vogel for lieutenant governor, and John Adams for attorney general make their case as to why Virginians should elect them Nov. 7, 2017.
In a policy-focused discussion, the candidates talk about the economy, energy production, job growth, attracting businesses to the state, healthcare and Medicaid expansion, public safety, combatting gang violence, partnerships with local law enforcement and the federal government, and providing support for those battling opioid addiction.
Getting through the noise and chaff created by their opponents and the media, this podcast gives the straight answers you’ve been looking for. This includes a discussion on how the policy to combat MS-13 is not an anti-immigrant policy, but a pro-immigrant one or how questioning whether Democratic candidate for LG, Justin Fairfax, could “talk intellectually” about the issues has nothing to do with race, as The Washington Post alludes, but about his complete inexperience on how the state government operates. On the other hand, when you have a record like Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam or Attorney General Mark Herring’s, there is ample opportunity to compare and contrast with them too.
There is little doubt going into the final days of this campaign that the ticket feels unified and confident.
Gillespie said that the ticket has all the “intensity, energy, and momentum” right now, and that sentiment was echoed by his running mates.
