Republican AG Candidates Silent on Muslim Ban

by Democratic Party of Virginia

Republicans vying to be Virginia's top lawyer are conspicuously silent on the most pressing and impactful legal issue facing the country: Donald Trump's discriminatory executive action. 
If John Adams and Chuck Smith want to be the Commonwealth's top lawyer, they need to let Virginians know if they stand on the side of civil liberties and American values, or if they support a xenophobic and discriminatory action.
"John Adams and Chuck Smith need to let Virginians know where they stand on Donald Trump's discriminatory and un-American executive order if they want to be Virginia's Attorney General. This is the most pressing legal issue facing the country, and the position of Attorney General requires leadership. It's time for John Adams and Chuck Smith to show Virginians what kind of leaders they truly are." - Emily Bolton, Communications Director of the Democratic Party of Virginia
