HARRISONBURG, Va. (AP) — This time out, Democrat Terry McAuliffe's campaign strategy came down to three points: dramatically outspend the opponent, take advantage of outside factors and keep his outsized persona to himself.
If he wins the Virginia governor's race on Tuesday, McAuliffe will achieve what eluded him four years ago. He will win his first elected position after a political career marked by a stint as a national Democratic Party chairman and the distinction of being a Clinton family confidant.
Should he win, McAuliffe partly can credit his own political skills. Luck also has had a lot to do with his performance.
