“HENRICO, VA — Republican gubernatorial hopeful Ed Gillespie defended his campaign’s tough talk on immigration and support for protecting Confederate statues during an interview just hours before the polls closed Tuesday, arguing that his campaign is highlighting the stark policy differences between the two candidates.
Speaking with The Hill on a misty Tuesday afternoon outside of a polling place at a suburban Richmond, Va., elementary school, Gillespie said that his focus on policy issues will make it easier for the state to come together behind him after a divisive election.
“My focus and ads have been about issues and policy differences,” Gillespie said.
“The lieutenant governor came forward and said we should remove all of the historical statues in the Commonwealth of Virginia, I disagree with that. And that’s a difference in policy. It’s a legitimate debate but it’s a difference in policy.”
Gillespie went on to note differences between himself and his opponent, Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam (D), on sanctuary cities and the restoration of felon voting rights. And he pointed to the controversial pro-Northam ad run by the Latino Victory Fund, which depicts a Gillespie supporter driving a Confederate flag-adorned pickup truck terrorizing minority children, to tar Democratic attacks as “smears.”
“[The ad] basically portrayed my supporters and millions of Virginians across the Commonwealth of Virginia as evil,” he said.”
