LIVE FROM THE HOMESTEAD: VIRGINIA BAR ASSOCIATION DEBATE-GILLESPIE v. NORTHAM

Closing statements, with Gillespie focusing on Virginia, Northam focusing on federal issues.

There is a question on the death penalty. Northan is against, Gillespie is for the death penalty. Gillespie pivots to the “sanctuary cities” and how he opposes them.

 


 

Gillespie asks Northam about his support Atlantic Coast Pipeline.



The first Question is to Northam about Trump. Northam calls Trump a narcissistic maniac.




ITS ALMOST TIME!


Bearing Drift is live and on location from the marvelous Omni Homestead Resort in Bath County, VA. We are here for the first debate between Republican nominee Ed Gillespie and Democratic nominee Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam.

This should be a spirited debate. I have spoken with Gillespie and Republican Governor’s Association staffers, who are exceedingly confident in their candidate. They have promised an exciting debate!

Please follow me @MattColtHall on Twitter to keep up with the debate. I will do my best to update this article throughout the day. The hastag is #vbadebate  and the debate is being livestreamed on PBS.

Thank you for choosing Bearing Drift for all your conservative media in Virginia!
