Former US President Barack Obama is back in the political arena – no less than he swipes at Republicans. On the one hand, there is a current with a policy of “average and sectarianism and conflict,” Democrats said in Richmond on Saturday during an election campaign ahead of the gubernatorial election in the US state of Virginia. “But the good news is, there’s another way we can pull together and solve bigger problems.” It is a conclusion “I hope it will determine not only the next few years but also the next ten years of human history”.
Obama spoke about determining what kind of democracy the next generation will inherit. He warned against “returning to the chaos that caused so much damage”. The former president will mark the term of his successor, Donald Trump (75), who ruled the White House from 2017 to January this year. In Virginia, Obama’s fellow party member Terry McAuliffe, 64, and pro – Trump Republican Glenn Youngkin, 54, are running for governor. The election takes place on November 2. This is considered to be the initial mood test for the nationwide congressional election in a year.

Obama intervened with attacks on a Republican candidate in the election campaign for governor of the state of Virginia. Obama said he wants to reduce Young’s teaching levels and restrict access to abortion. He also accused former President Donald Trump of backing unproven election fraud allegations.
“He said he wanted to investigate the voting machines used in the last presidential election,” Obama said of the Republican candidate. “Really? Does he support the lies and conspiracy theories we’ve always seen? Should we believe he’s firm in our democracy?”
McAuliffe, who is seeking a second term as governor after his first term from 2014 to 2018, is in a neck-and-neck race with Young at the polls. The election in Virginia is seen as an important test for US President Joe Biden’s Democrats in the run – up to next year’s midterm elections. (SDA / AFP / kes))
