What Will Primary Turnout Mean for the Democratic Candidates for Governor?
Jun 14, 2017, 06:30
While Perriello is trying to use the clout of his buddies in D.C., the last we checked he was polling about even with Democratic competitor Ralph Northam.

And turnout in the Democratic primary far outpaced the Republican side. Stewart's campaign has mostly been composed of attacks on undocumented workers, defense of Confederate monuments, and oaths of fealty to the president. In the counties of Southwest Virginia, Perriello received 2,194 votes compared to 2,180 votes for Northam.
"We'll still be here when he's gone", said Bonnie Reid, 70, a Northam volunteer. Dominion Energy is backing the construction of one pipeline, the Atlantic Coast Pipeline, and Perriello has been a vocal critic of the politically influential energy giant. But Perriello's bid earlier this year upended the race, with the former congressman catching national attention for his fiery anti-Trump rhetoric.
"I think the midterm elections and statewide elections are very critical to the national issues", said one voter. His plan would lower the tax rate on income over $17,000 a year from 5.75 percent to 5.15 percent. He has said he would be focused on creating economic opportunity and security for the middle class by helping small businesses thrive and expanding workforce development.
Just before 2:30 p.m. - and still energetic - Perriello made the case for voting in an off-year election to the owner of a Cajun restaurant in Petersburg.
