Northam wins Democratic nomination for Va. governor

Northam wins Democratic nomination for Va. governor

In the gubernatorial race, there are two Democrats vying for the nomination, Ralph Northam and Tom Perriello, and three Republicans, Ed Gillespie, Corey Stewart and Frank Wagner.

As the Richmond-Times Dispatch reported last week, "Virginia Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam had almost twice as much money in the bank as former U.S. Rep. Tom Perriello in early June as the two Democratic candidates for governor entered the closing days of a tight primary". The final days of the primary cycle are ending on familiar notes.

Though he supported Clinton past year, Perriello's message has attracted the support of Sanders, who has sought, with mixed success, to transform the national Democratic Party.

On the Republican side, Corey Stewart handily defeated Ed Gillespie in every county in Southwest Virginia. Ron Villanueva of Virginia Beach, chairman of the House transportation committee.

Stewart's surprise performance came after a campaign during which he engendered significant controversy.

The candidate held aloft a bag of Tyson Foods chicken nuggets at a Fredericksburg diner as he pilloried Gillespie for his lobbying firm's assistance to the company when it was accused of smuggling immigrant workers. An worldwide trade attorney, he has vowed to protect Confederate monuments such as statues of Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson. And his campaign feuded with a local television station that initially refused to air a campaign ad featuring a controversial image of comedian Kathy Griffin holding up a likeness of President Trump's bloody severed head.

IPhones will block texts while driving in new update
Apple's iOS 11 beings a wide range of new features to the iPhone and iPad and it brings a complete redesign to the app store . Do Not Disturb can automatically silence notifications to keep the screen dark and stop drivers being distracted.

But while the campaign has been fiercely fought, and the polls are tight, the dividing lines between the candidates have proven fuzzier than expected.

Former U.S. Rep. Tom Perriello, who served from 2008 to 2010, is running as a liberal crusader supported by Sen. After starting way down in the polls, Perriello climbed to within striking distance in the campaign's home stretch. That not only gives Republicans a serious advantage in the policy sphere, it also is likely to demoralize Democrats on Election Day - potentially swinging the result.

Mittiga was the first primary challenger Toscano has faced since he was elected in 2005. It's a speech from the President, in which he said In America, we don't worship government.

"I trust his leadership".

"We didn't see that from others who were in the race at the time or since".

At Northam's event in Arlington, there were cheers and high fives as news spread that he had been declared the victor.

Florida legislators reach deal for schools and dike repairs
Scott called legislators back to town to enact a new budget for public schools and to set aside money for his top priorities. Counties and cities would be allowed to ban dispensaries, and none could be located within 500 feet of a school.

"Fifteen dollars, that would be wonderful", Niles said.

Northam and Perriello have both promised to raise the state's minimum wage to $15 per hour.

At the outset of the campaign, Perriello drew headlines for his full-throated assault on Trump, an apparent effort to nationalize the race and coalesce the growing resistance to the incoming administration's controversial agenda.

Perriello had no such luck with another employee. "But I think in this race, for the state of Virginia, Ralph Northam is the better candidate".

In a sign the Richmond area may be closely divided, none of the three candidates for the Democratic nomination for a Clinton-won, Republican-held House of Delegates district that takes in parts of the city and Henrico and Chesterfield counties would disclose at a debate on June 5 their preference for the gubernatorial nomination. It is no longer even considered a purple state. Most polls showed Gillespie with a double-digit lead before Election Day.

"We need someone to lead on doing the heavy lifting", he said.
