POTUS Trump Rips GOP Elite Gillespie After Loss: “Gillespie Worked Hard But Did Not Embrace Me or What I Stand For”

GOP elite Ed Gillespie lost the Virginia gubernatorial race Tuesday to Ralph Northam.

President Trump weighed in on the race shortly after Gillespie lost a close race to Democrat Northam. 

“Ed Gillespie worked hard but did not embrace me or what I stand for. Don’t forget, Republicans won 4 out of 4 House seats, and with the economy doing record numbers, we will continue to win, even bigger than before!,” tweeted President Trump.

Trump is RIGHT!
Gillespie chose to believe the lying liberal media and refused to campaign with the Republican President.

NBC reported:

Democrat Ralph Northam defeated Republican Ed Gillespie in the Virginia governor race on Tuesday, according to an NBC News projection.

With 77 percent of the vote in, Northam had 52 percent and Gillespie trailed with 47 percent.

Both national parties spent millions of dollars in the first major election since President Donald Trump’s surprise victory last year and were closely watching the outcome as an early barometer of the political climate ahead of next year’s midterm contests.

Newsbusters’ Curtis Houck weighed in on the loss, saying “elections in this state going forward aren’t about Trump. It’s about the direction of the state.”

“Plurality of voters in VA (47%) said vote cast was “not about Trump,” reported CBS News.
