Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax announced his gubernatorial candidacy a few months after he let people know he was thinking about it.
The announcement also comes a year after he faced two sexualassault allegations.
Sometimes there are incredible stories that come out, that when you see them you think, "Did that person really say that?"
Such was the case for me Friday when I read the news that embattled Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax (D) told reporters he was seriously considering a 2021 gubernatorial run—because the two sexual assault allegations leveled against him earlier this year had raised his profile.
Vanessa Tyson and Meredith Watson, the two women who have accused Democrat Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax of sexual assault and rape, sat down with Gayle King for CBS This Morning to provide details of the incidents.
Tyson demanded an investigation from the Virginia legislature while Watson reminded people that she has nothing to gain by coming forward.
