Former Governor Terry McAuliffe has filed the necessary paperwork to run for Governor next year. However, he says he has not yet made the final decision on running.
From the Richmond Times-Dispatch:
McAuliffe filed paperwork with the Virginia State Board of Elections on Wednesday listing himself as a Democratic candidate for governor. But his spokesman, Brennan Bilberry, said McAuliffe won’t made an official decision to run until after the November election.
“Governor McAuliffe is making no decisions on 2021 until after we defeat Donald Trump and his hateful ideology,” Bilberry said.
What about LG Justin Fairfax, AG Mark Herring, Delegate Jennifer Carroll Foy and former state senator Jennifer McClellan? Aren’t they hoping to run for Governor? It could be an interesting Democratic primary.
