In the Old Dominion Republican gubernatorial candidate and Prince William County Supervisors Chairman Corey Stewart is being attacked in the liberal mainstream media over his strident defense of Confederate monuments. Independent Journal Review writes:
[O]ne gubernatorial candidate named Corey Stewart is trying to make a stand against this trend. Taking a page out of the Trump campaign book, Stewart has been tweeting about the situation in New Orleans seemingly nonstop….
Stewart, who is originally from Minnesota — not Virginia, has seriously picked up some Southern pride while on the campaign trail.
…If you’ve glanced at Stewart’s Twitter account at all, you’ll notice that he really, really, really, wants you to know that he loves the Confederate flag and monuments that honor their leaders and generals.
His stand for Dixie cost him the endorsement of Prince William County’s Black Republican sheriff. Nearly the entire GOP establishment is now against him. He responded, “I don’t care if it wins me support or if I lose support. Defending history is the right thing to do.”
He was also Donald Trump’s campaign manager for Virginia before being fired after leading protests against the GOP establishment – which he labeled “establishment pukes.”
The rebel gubernatorial candidate faces an uphill battle. He was at 12% in the polls earlier this month, though all the free press over his stand for Southern heritage may have shifted the numbers since then.
