McAuliffe Wooing Black Voters

Anita Kumar

Terry McAuliffe scores another small victory with black voters.

McAuliffe was endorsed by the Richmond Free Press, a free newspaper in the capital city that caters to the African American community. "He demonstrated his concern for the black community, showing up at events in our community as he did in other communities-and following up to assure that he means what he says,'' the newspaper writes in a lengthy editorial published today.

Last week, McAuliffe gotthe backing of the Richmond Crusade for Voters, a civil rights group.

In what is expected to be a low turnout primary, African American voters will play a crucial role in the June 9 primary. McAuliffe, Creigh Deeds and Brian Moran have launched aggressive campaigns to woo the state's African American voters through radio ads, endorsements and events.

Yes he is! And Moran hired Del. Lionel Spruill to do his outreach to African American voters - what a joke. He is also housing the delegate for his former district - Charniele "barely beat a Republican in the West End of Alexandria" Herring in his office. Her campaign office was, and still may be, listed as his office. I think if he pays off or houses enough African American delegates he just may get more African American votes. Put a fork in the Moran campaign.
