  •  VA-Lt. Gov.: Jackson fought against desegregation: (7+ / 0-)

    http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/...
    South Boston was segregating their public housing to keep out African-Americans and the feds stepped in to fix it.  Jackson strongly opposed and fought against the desegregation.

      another Clarence Thomas to me.  Wonder if he also has sexual harassment in his past.

    •  After chewing on this for a couple days... (6+ / 0-)

      ...I'm convinced we're going to take L.G. no matter what happens in Gov.  Jackson is unelectable.  Chopra or Northam would have to implode spectacularly to lose.

      I expect we take L.G. by 10-15 points.  Jackson is not going to run an earnest campaign.  I doubt there will be a lot of money for him.

      But I also doubt he hurts Cooch or Obenshain too much...but I'm open to being proven wrong on that.  I suppose some sort of negative synergy could doom all three of them together as the whackadoodle Muskateers, but Cooch for his part has been a smart campaigner in his career.
