RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- The Democratic candidates for Virginia governor have met for their second debate, sparring over policing and economic development.
The hour-long event held at a hotel in Bristol showcased the diverse styles and perspectives of the field that voters will winnow next month. In one of the sharpest exchanges self-described socialist Del. Lee Carter attacked the massive incentives the state offered to lure Amazon’s second headquarters to northern Virginia.
Former Gov. Terry McAuliffe, widely considered the Democratic front-runner, shot back. McAuliffe said he wrote the Amazon bid and was proud of it.
Democratic voters will pick their nominee in a June 8 primary.
