Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi warned Dems in a fundraising pitch that a Terry McAuliffe loss in Virginia this November will “essentially steamroll a path to Trump’s comeback”:

She’s right to be worried. Right now, Joe Biden’s approval rating is about the same as when Donald Trump was impeached:
This would place Biden at the same approval as Trump was during his impeachment. https://t.co/m2kFo15UkA

As we told you earlier, McAuliffe is bringing in Barack Obama, Stacey Abrams, and Jill Biden to help campaign for him:

But a few moments ago he said he’ll have Biden in the state as well:
ALEXANDRIA, Va. — At an education roundtable, Terry McAuliffe said President Biden will be campaigning for him. "He'll be coming back. You bet he will."

Maybe he’s trying to lose?
Man, Terry McAuliffe REALLY does not want to be governor of Virginia. https://t.co/coF0JCq9ji

And we’ll note that McAuliffe was unmasked at this education roundtable where he talked about keeping kids safe in school with masks:
.@DSMcAuliffe and I enjoyed a great roundtable discussion with parents, educators, early childhood education leaders, and my good friend @AnneHolton in Alexandria this AM. Together, we'll build a world-class education system & keep kids safely in school. Let's go! pic.twitter.com/iiWmmteA8a

Man, he *deserves* to lose.
