Richmond, VA – In case you missed it, the Democratic Party of Virginia has turned into a full-on tire fire, and it’s a real shame.
It all started with Democrat mega-donor Michael Bills pulling his (Clean Virginia’s) sponsorship of the Blue Commonwealth Gala over concerns with the DPVA honoring Justin Fairfax as one of their keynote speakers. Losing the dynamic duo of Bills/Clean Virginia is a big blow to Democrats’ fundraising operation, given that Bills gave $200,000 to the DPVA in 2019 and Clean Virginia gave nearly $250,000 to Democrat candidates in 2019.
But that’s not all. In keeping with the DPVA tradition of celebrating racist politicians, Michael Bloomberg was invited to speak. During his speech, an attendee walked up to the podium and taped a sign reading, “HE PROTECTS RACIST SYSTEMS” to the dais. Unfortunately, this did not receive the same blanket coverage as Delegate Ibraheem Samirah’s similar stunt last year.
“While the Republican Party of Virginia is registering voters in record numbers, the Democrats are infighting and dealing with rampant racism,” said RPV Chairman Jack Wilson. “Thankfully for Republicans, President Trump has cut taxes, created jobs, and made American a better place to live for everyone. On election day, Virginia will choose betterment over bickering.”
