Adrienne Elrod, a former communications director for Hillary Clinton's failed presidential campaign, admitted on Tuesday that Virginia's Democratic gubernatorial candidate Ralph Northam "supports sanctuary cities."
Appearing on Fox News' "America's Newsroom," Elrod criticized the Republican gubernatorial candidate, Ed Gillespie, for tying Northam to sanctuary cities for illegal immigrants.
"Ed Gillespie has essentially blamed Ralph Northam for MS-13 violence because he casted the deciding vote to support sanctuary cities in Virginia, which by the way, there are no sanctuary cities in Virginia," Elrod said.
The Republican-controlled Virginia General Assembly considered legislation back in February aimed at banning sanctuary cities, which are localities that will not detain and deport people who are in the country illegally. The vote ended up being a 20-20 tie, so Northam, the lieutenant governor, cast the tie-breaking vote against the bill.
National Review editor Rich Lowry asked Elrod why Northam would cast the deciding vote against the ban on sanctuary cities..
