Virginia Democrats no longer support Northam; Demand his immediate resignation
RICHMOND, VA. – Democratic Party of Virginia Chair Susan Swecker issued the following statement calling on the immediate resignation of Governor Northam.
"We made the decision to let Governor Northam do the correct thing and resign this morning - we have gotten word he will not do so this morning.
We stand with Democrats across Virginia and the country calling him to immediately resign. He no longer has our confidence or our support. Governor Northam must end this chapter immediately, step down, and let Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax heal Virginia's wounds and move us forward. We can think of no better person than Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax to do so."
