Quotes from the news wire:
Pete Buttigieg is really spending a lot of time and energy to make sure Pete Buttigieg has enough resources to be credible, obviously, campaign leadership is going to have to find the right balance. It's fine in the short term, since Pete Buttigieg started out entirely shoestring and not having a finance base... but I also believe after a good second quarter, a good third quarter, then Pete Buttigieg will have to shift focus back to the early states.
I dont think its actually true, there are cynics who say this is about the next election. But I think its much more about values. We would move from a progressive, very strong attorney general to someone whos not just a Republican, but whos on the arch-conservative end of it. So the way our laws wouldbe administered in Virginia would be completely different. This isnt about party politics as much as it is about the kind of Virignia that we want.
