GOP’s Nominee for Virginia Governor Praised Confederate Generals, Heritage at 2017 Event4:07

The winning GOP nominee on Tuesday night, June 12, for the Virginia governor’s race can be seen in a video from April last year praising Virginia’s Confederate generals and heritage in a Danville room festooned with the Confederate flag. The video was streamed via Facebook Live on April 8, 2017, to Corey Stewart’s verified page, and shows him at the Old South Ball dressed in a Civil War-era costume and promising to “take back Virginia.” “I need your help because on June the 13 is a Republican primary, and there’s only one of us who’s going to sign the legislation to prohibit Charlottesville, or any other locality, from taking down a statue of any one of our heroes,” he told the audience. “Because over my dead body when I’m governor of Virginia are we ever going to take down the statue of Robert E. Lee or Stonewall Jackson or any hero of the commonwealth of Virginia.” Credit: Corey Stewart via Storyful
