McAuliffe Enters Virginia Governor Race

After weeks of halfhearted denials, Terry McAuliffe, 51, the former DNC chairman and Hillary’s most persistent booster during the long primary campaign, will on Wednesday officially enter the race to succeed Democrat Tim Kaine as Virginia governor. Meanwhile he has posted his intentions on his website. McAuliffe will face two other Democrats, state Senator Creigh Deeds and former House Democratic Caucus Chairman Brian Moran. A native of upstate New York, McAuliffe has lived in Virginia for 17 years. He raised tens of millions of dollars for Hillary and can expect the Clintons to campaign aggressively on his behalf when the Virginia race begins in earnest.
