Hillary Clinton is on her way to win the Democratic nomination. Meanwhile, Donald Trump continues to campaign as the frontrunner trying to secure the 1237 delegates needed to win the GOP nomination. If he does win, the Democrats will do everything they can do to prevent Trump from winning the White House. In Virginia, Governor Terry McAiliffe is getting a head start in making sure Trump has no chance to win his state.
Historically, blacks vote for the Democrat in any race. Hard part is getting them out to vote. President Obama secured more than 90% of the black vote in 2008 when running against Senator John McCain. And to ensure Hillary gets all the help she will need to beat Trump, Governor McAillife has issued an executive order which makes it so more than 200,000 felons who have completed their sentences, the majority of them black, will be able to cast ballots in the swing state of Virginia in November’s election.
Governor McAuliffe said his actions would help undo Virginia’s long history of trying to suppress the black vote, and he is certain he has the legal authority for this massive extension of voting rights after consulting with legal and constitutional experts, including Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring.
