Biden, Harris, other Democrats wage final get-out-the-vote push for McAuliffe

President Biden along with other prominent Democrats are encouraging supporters to vote for Terry McAuliffe Virginia’s Election Day.

Mr. Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris and others took to social media in out a last-minute, get-out-the-vote message to help Mr. McAuliffe, who is neck and neck with Republican Glenn Youngkin in the race for governor. They also supported New Jersey Governor. Phil Murphy is running for reelection.

“Virginia, New Jersey, you have only a few more days to vote and help elect Terry McAuliffe , Phil Murphy and other Democrats down the ballot,” Mr. Biden tweets.

Ms. Harris posted a video of herself talking about the importance of both races and her experience campaigning for Mr. McAuliffe and Mr. Murphy.

” I’ve been in Virginia with Terry McAuliffe ,” Mrs. Harris. “We have to do everything we can to ensure that those two governors (and Democrats) up and down the ballots, this Wednesday, get elected .”

Former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams added her voice to the 11th-hour push.

” Let’s vote. Let’s get it done. Terry McAuliffe , Hala Ala, Mark Herring November 2. Vote early. Vote now. “Get it done!” Ms. Abrams stated in a Twitter video.

New Jersey and Virginia will hold gubernatorial elections on Tuesday, though the race between Mr. McAuliffe and Mr. Youngkin is expected to be a tougher path for Democrats.

“Virginia. Tomorrow is your chance to make an impact by voting for people like Terry McAuliffe , and other Democrats on tomorrow’s ballot,” Mr. Harrison tweeted. “Get to the polls early – and bring some friends

Mr. McAuliffe was joined by several heavy-hitting Democrats who stumped for the former governor in the final stretch of the campaign. Mr. Biden and Ms. Harris campaigned for Mr. McAuliffe last week.

Several prominent Black politicians also took to the trail over the weekend to bolster Mr. McAuliffe‘s support, as polls indicate him struggling with Black voters.

Mr. McAuliffe is joined on the Democratic ticket with lieutenant governor candidate Hala Ayala and Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring, who is running for a third term.

Mr. McAuliffe and Mr. Youngkin are splitting support at 48%, according to an Emerson College/Nexstar poll.
