Obama Will Campaign for Democrat Gubernatorial Hopeful

Former President Barack Obama is scheduled to campaign with former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe in his bid for a second term, the Democratic nominee’s campaign announced Tuesday .

During an interview Tuesday on MSNBC, after touting Obama joining him on the campaign trail, McAuliffe said, “The stakes are so huge.”

Obama will campaign with McAuliffe on Oct. 23 in Richmond, shortly before Old Dominion’s Nov. 2 election.

Virginia bars its governors from serving consecutive terms, the only state with such a restriction. McAuliffe was previously governor of Virginia from 2014-18. Prior to serving as governor, he chaired the Democratic National Committee from 2001-05.
