HENRICO, VA -- In the Washington Post today, former Governor Terry McAuliffe laid out a positive and optimistic vision for the United States of America - a vision that is increasingly needed as Donald Trump continues to use the position of President of the United States to divide our country.
Governor McAuliffe said it best: “After two years of President Trump’s grandiose bluster, bluffing and buffoonery, Americans elected candidates who ran as optimistic, progressive problem-solvers focused on results central to families: health care, work, education and taxes. We need to be big, bold and optimistic…”
During his time as Governor of Virginia, Terry McAuliffe demonstrated what it means to be a progressive problem solver. When Virginia Republicans sued Governor McAuliffe over his blanket restoration of voter rights, the Governor restored the voting rights of over 172,000 citizens one signature at a time.
Governor McAuliffe also proposed a state budget that included over one billion dollars in K-12 and higher education investments, as well as millions of dollars for workforce development programs, such as certificate programs, associate degrees, and technical training.
“Former Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe has the policy vision and the character to take on President Trump in 2020 and I sincerely hope that he does,” said Graham Weinschenk, Ready for Terry’s Director of Operations. “He was a brick wall against hateful and divisive legislation in Virginia, and he has outlined a realistic and progressive policy agenda that is the perfect antithesis to Donald Trump.”
Governor McAuliffe has the experience to fight for real change that is beneficial to every American, and he has the character to push back against Donald Trump. We invite all Americans to join us, and demonstrate that it is time for Terry.
