Americans for Prosperity, the group financed by the billionaire industrialists Charles and David Koch, is going on air to attack Virginia Democratic gubernatorial contender Ralph Northam as part of a multi-million dollar campaign.
A commercial set to air Thursday on cable networks statewide blasts Northam, the sitting lieutenant governor, for missing board meetings of the Virginia Economic Development Partnership. . . .
Northam faces Republican Ed Gillespie, a longtime GOP party operative who was the keynote speaker at Americans for Prosperity’s summit in Richmond in August.
