I hope you’re as excited for tonight’s State of the Commonwealth address as I am. During the speech we'll no doubt hear the second phase of Terry McAuliffe’s 2020 campaign kick off.
Terry is undoubtedly going to take credit for a lot of the hard work done by General Assembly Republicans over the past few years, such as closing budget shortfalls, allocating more money to schools, and generally working to improve Virginia’s business climate. TMac has one chance to re-introduce himself to Democrat primary voters — which should make tonight’s speech a pander-fest in the extreme.

As you cover the speech, please consider the following quote from me, and feel free to share these campaign signs we’ve made to help Terry get his 2020 campaign started right!
“Terry McAuliffe couldn’t make it any more clear that he wants to be President. Unfortunately for Terry McAuliffe, we’ve all seen his record as governor.” — Garren Shipley, RNC spokesman
