Thursday’s lackluster showing for Terry McAuliffe and Kamala Harris tells you everything you need to know: Democrats are not energized or excited about their candidate for governor.

Next on the docket as McAuliffe desperately tries to energize his base: Barack Obama.

If you are reporting on Obama’s campaign event with McAuliffe today, consider the following quote from the RGA:

“Terry McAuliffe has called in the cavalry to drum up enthusiasm for his sinking ship of a campaign, and so far — it’s just not working,” said RGA Spokeswoman Maddie Anderson. “As Biden’s poll numbers continue to tank, McAuliffe is going down with him and no amount of heavy hitter politicians will right the ship.”
