• Northam Outflanks Perriello on Offshore Drilling — Will Perriello Flip?

    — How long until Tom Perriello has another heartfelt conversion? —  
    As President Trump takes action in Washington that will create jobs and advance American energy independence, the two Democrats who want to be the next governor of Virginia are in two very different places on energy security — for now.

    Lt. Governor Ralph Northam opposes offshore drilling. But in 2008, Tom Perriello went so far as to demand that a TV ad accusing him of being opposed to offshore drilling be pulled from air for containing a “flat out lie.” While in Congress, Tom Perriello actually sponsored legislation promoting offshore drilling.

    Perriello flip-flop incoming in 3…2…1…
    RPV Chairman John Whitbeck issued the following statement:

    “Now that we have a President who believes in American energy independence again, it’s fascinating to watch the split between Ralph Northam and Tom Perriello on this issue. Northam has outflanked Perriello to his left, hoping to lock up the far-left environmental vote. Tom Perriello can’t let that happen.”

    “I look forward to yet another heart-felt, tear filled Jimmy Swaggart-style Facebook post in which Tom Perriello repents for his previous sins against the church of far-left liberalism. He’s already apologized for his previous pro-life leanings and support from the NRA. His flip on offshore drilling should be one for the ages.”
