What Do Huckabee and Schweitzer Have in Common?
A couple months ago, Terry McAuliffe blasted Bob McDonnell for keeping quiet while his surrogate Mike Huckabee encouraged Virginia Republicans to keep voters from the polls on Election Day.
Well, today, McAuliffe's surrogate, Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer sounded like he was trying to suppress a few votes himself when he said -- jokingly? -- that supporters of McAuliffe rivals, Creigh Deeds and Brian Moran, should show up at the polls on Thursday, instead of Tuesday.
"The other two guys are good guys," Schweitzer said at an Arlington stop with McAuliffe this morning. "They're in the legislature. No one's campaigning against anyone. And if you decide you're going to vote for one of the other guys, show up on Thursday."
No, it wasn't a slip of the tongue.
So what is McAuliffe's response now?
"Terry obviously disagrees with that sentiment and encourages everyone to turn out on Tuesday no matter who they support,'' said Elisabeth Smith, McAuliffe's spokewoman. "A high turnout on June 9 will benefit all Democrats in November."
