DPVA on “Enron Ed” Gillespie’s Candidacy for Governor

by Democratic Party of Virginia

In response to news that Washington lobbyist Ed Gillespie is the first Republican candidate for Virginia governor, Virginia Democrats issued the following statement from Press Secretary Morgan Finkelstein:

"While Enron Ed thinks he deserves a second shot at political office, Virginia voters know better than to trust the self-proclaimed 'partisan lobbyist' any more this time around. No matter who declares for governor next, one thing's certain - the Republican caucus will be a race to the right-wing extremes."
