Moran Responds to Clinton Visit

Rosalind Helderman

Brian Moran's been touting his long list of endorsements for some time, but no one on his list has quite the star power of a former president of the United States.

Standing next to a Henrico County school board member and a Richmond area delegate at an event to talk about education this afternoon, Moran was asked about the news that President Bill Clinton will be coming to Virginia next week to campaign for longtime friend Terry McAuliffe.

He smiled broadly.

"This race will be won with Virginia voters," he said. Then, he went through his familiar recitation of his long years of service as a prosecutor and delegate in Virginia. "That's what will win this primary," he said.

But McAuliffe said today that Clinton can offer Virginia voters his thoughts as a former governor from another southern state.

"If people are focused on jobs, I don't think anyone has the credibility to talk about job creation better than Bill Clinton," he said.
