Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax (D) said that he is ‘very hopeful about the future’ and ‘thinking very seriously’ about a gubernatorial run in 2021, the Richmond Times Dispatch reports.
“Fairfax, who faces sexual assault allegations by two women, said the scandal has raised his public profile for good.”
“Said Fairfax: “Many people a year ago would not have recognized me, now they really do. People come up to me at gas stations, they say, ‘Hey, we recognize you. We love you. We know what they are saying about you is false.’”
