McAuliffe Learns "Colors Matter" at UVA

Tim Craig

Bob Gibson, a former reporter for Charlottesville's Daily Progress who continues to blog for the newspaper, reports Terry McAuliffe showed up at last night's University of Virginia game against North Carolina.

When he took his seat, McAuliffe apparently realized he was wearing the wrong color of blue sweater for a Virginia game against the Tar Heels. So McAuliffe apparently dispatched someone to the concessions stand to buy some Virginia merchandise.

Gibson gives a first-hand account of McAuliffe being a quick study in realizing "colors matter," especially for a politician battling perceptions that he is not an authentic Virginian.
