Democratic State Senator Says Romney Is Running On Race


According to Virginia State Senator Louise Lucas (D-Portsmouth), Mitt Romney wants race to be part of November’s election. Lucas said that Romney and his supporters do not want anyone “other than a white man in the White House.” Reportedly, the black Senator is part of Barack Obama’s “Truth Team.”

“I absolutely believe it’s all about race and for the first time in my life I’ve been able to convince my children finally that racism is alive and well,” Lucas said on The John Fredericks Morning Show.

Lucas went on to say that there is no reason anyone should not like Barack Obama:

All of the folks who are saying ‘We don’t like Barack Obama’ they can’t tell you any reason that they don’t because, let me say first of all, President Barack Obama did not create the situation … this economic mess that we’re in. Everybody knows that this stuff happened under President George Bush and they are trying to dump it on the President. … Intelligent people understand that President Barack Obama did not create this mess. … I listen to MSNBC.

She also said that polls indicate Obama’s approval rating is falling because people are on vacation and not paying attention to political messages.

Lucas is known for her attempts to change the State song of Virginia. “Carry Me Back To Old Virginia” talks about a “darkey” who laments the loss of his “massa and misses” and wants to return to “old Virginny.”
