Vice President Biden got Virginia Democrats fired up Sunday evening during their annual Jefferson Jackson dinner. As keynote speaker for the event Biden endorsed Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe and bashed republicans saying, “This is about as stark a choice as you could imagine — a choice between the Virginia way and the tea party way.”
McAuliffe also took a chance to grill his opponents telling the crowd, “The tea party ticket is focused on issues that divide Virginians: attacking voting rights, Planned Parenthood, gay Virginians, the Social Security that you paid into all your life, science and even yoga.” His yoga comment is in reference to a remark made by GOP lieutenant governor nominee E.W. Jackson linking yoga with Satan. “And yes,” McAuliffe continued “of course, they’re still questioning President Obama’s place of birth.” For more on this story please visit The Washington Post.
