President Trump Looks To Flip Virginia In 2020

The Trump Administration wants to rally competition in a historically Democrat-held state, ahead of Election Day.
President Trump hopes to court supporters in Virginia prior to the 2020 by capitalizing on scandals surrounding state Democrat lawmakers, including Governor Ralph Northam, Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax, and Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring.

Politicians across the aisle derided Northam and Herring earlier this year, after both lawmakers admitted to appearing in racist photos, taken while they were attending college, which resurfaced in recent weeks.
Fairfax, who is next in line to succeed Northam, also found himself in the cross hairs after two women came forward to accuse him of sexual assault.
The scandals raised questions about Virginia’s leadership, and exposed major divisions in the Democrat Party.
Pundits say those divisions offer a rare window to the GOP, which hasn’t won a state-wide election in Virginia in 10 years.
The White House is additionally using the 2019 off-season elections to field early support for President Trump’s Campaign.
This week, Vice President Mike Pence held a fundraiser to stump for Republican state legislators running in November.
He’s also expected to campaign for other Virginia lawmakers in the coming months.
The White House is also hoping to try similar strategies in the hopes of flipping New Hampshire, Minnesota, Colorado, and New Mexico.
