Virginia governor race: Who are Ed Gillespie and Ralph Northam?

President Donald Trump expressed his support for the Republican candidate for Virginia governor on Thursday night – and accused the Democratic candidate of "fighting for the violent MS-13" gang.

Republican Ed Gillespie and Democrat Ralph Northam are duking it out in next month’s gubernatorial race in the Old Dominion commonwealth. Just one of two states electing governors this year, Virginia is a swing state contest viewed as a possible referendum on Trump's first year in office.

Northam leads Gillespie by more than 5 percentage points in Real Clear Politics’ latest polling average. Trump lost to opponent Hillary Clinton by about 5 points in Virginia during the 2016 presidential election.

Here’s a look at the candidates.

Joe, you need to add the verbiage of the link so we can copy and paste it, as the "more" button denies access. I guess because we're not subscribers.
