The Hill reports:
CNN host Chris Cuomo and Virginia Senate candidate Corey Stewart (R) sparred Wednesday night in a heated interview that focused on Stewart’s affiliation with white nationalists. Stewart appeared on “Cuomo Prime Time” one day after he secured the Republican nomination to challenge Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) in November’s midterm election.
The two men frequently shouted over each other in the interview, with Cuomo repeatedly calling out Stewart’s refusal to condemn white nationalists. “Don’t blame me for being extreme left. Or being some antifa fool,” Cuomo said. “It’s your attempt to deny the facts.” “This is the biggest joke I’ve heard in a long time,” Stewart shot back.
“I take support from whoever wants to give it me. That doesn’t mean I support their views”

Congratulations to Corey Stewart for his great victory for Senator from Virginia. Now he runs against a total stiff, Tim Kaine, who is weak on crime and borders, and wants to raise your taxes through the roof. Don’t underestimate Corey, a major chance of winning!
