Dem Credibly Accused of Sexual Assault Has Higher Aspirations

Embattled Virginia Lt. Gov Justin Fairfax is “seriously” mulling a run for the commonwealth’s highest office and suggested that the multiple sexual misconduct allegations have helped raise his profile.

Fairfax told the Richmond Times-Dispatch that he felt “really inspired” after his recent trip to England than he was “very hopeful about the future.”

“Going on that trip and even leaving that trip, I was really inspired,” Fairfax said. “I’m very hopeful about the future. We’ve gotten a lot of encouragement about future political steps. I’m thinking very seriously about 2021.”

Former Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe is also reportedly considering another run for the governorship after ultimately deciding not to run for president in 2020, citing “problems” that needed to be solved in his home state.
