It has gone from a point of pride to a political problem.

Terry McAuliffe has long presented himself as a forerunner of wokeness in the South. He often brags about his status as the “first” Southern governor to support this or that woke cause. “I was proud to be the first Southern governor to officiate a same-sex wedding,” he has said. In his run for Virginia governor this year, however, his bumptious wokeness is proving a liability.

He finds himself in a tightening race. Even long-in-the-tooth liberal pundits are fretting over his run. “What most alarms Democrats is the lack of enthusiasm on their side,” says Eleanor Clift. To correct this problem, McAuliffe has asked Barack Obama, Stacey Abrams, and others to campaign for him. But could they make it worse?

The unfolding scandal in Loudoun County adds to McAuliffe’s troubles. The county’s transgender policy in public schools, which McAuliffe backed, has obviously exposed female students to harm. “More than 60 concerned parents, students and residents spoke at the Loudoun County School Board meeting Tuesday evening, with many demanding the resignation of Loudoun County Superintendent Scott Ziegler in the wake of allegations that the school district covered up two alleged sexual assaults,” reports Fox News.
