DNC Chair encourges Virginia democrats to particpate in primary
Today on NBC12 First at 4, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Shultz joined me live to discuss the republican presidential primary and Virginia’s role in the general election. Among other things, Rep. Wasserman Shultz said that Virginia democrats should vote in today’s open republican primary, although she stopped short of saying who they should support.
She also defended President Barack Obama‘s frequent visits to swing states including Virginia, as official White House visits, saying “the president is being the president.” Republicans have charged that the president is “campaigning on the taxpayer’s dime”.

I also interviewed Virginia Victory Chairman Pete Snyder, a close ally of Gov. Bob McDonnell and a potential candidate for statewide office in the Commonwealth. He defended his party’s lack of candidates in the Virginia primary and argued that the heated battles during the nomination process will be long forgotten once a candidate is officially nominated.
