McAuliffe Picks Up Congressman's Support
So it looks like, at long last and after weeks of close ties and kind words, U.S. Rep. Bobby Scott has essentially endorsed Terry McAuliffe.
We haven't yet heard him use the "e" word, but a McAuliffe mailer that hit yesterday features a photo of the two of them and quotes praising McAuliffe as representing "hope for Virginia." McAuliffe is far too careful a politician to send out a mailer like that without Scott's approval.
Scott's nod could be a key bit of support in his Hampton Roads district, helping to bring out black voters who could be critical to a possible McAuliffe victory. McAuliffe has also received the endorsements of the state's black newspapers.
You can read the mailer here.
