Northam: Virginia Has Said It Won’t ‘Condone Hatred and Bigotry,’ It Called for an End to Divisive Politics

During his victory speech on Tuesday, Virginia Governor-Elect Ralph Northam stated Virginia has said it won’t accept “hatred and bigotry,” and to end “the politics that have torn this country apart.”

Northam said, “Today, Virginians have answered and have spoken. Virginia has told us to end the divisiveness, that we will not condone hatred and bigotry, and to end the politics that have torn this country apart. I want to let you know that in Virginia, it’s going to take a doctor to heal our differences, to bring unity to our people. And I’m here to let you know that the doctor is in, and this doctor will be on call for the next four years.”
