RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - With their new statewide ticket finally set, Democratic nominees for governor, lieutenant governor and attorney come together for the first time Wednesday to establish sharp ideological contrasts with a conservative Republican ticket.

Fresh off Tuesday's primary triumphs, lieutenant governor nominee Ralph Northam of Norfolk and Mark Herring of Loudoun link up with gubernatorial nominee Terry McAuliffe in a historic theater in a historically black Richmond neighborhood.

Northam and Herring, both state senators, face stark opposites in the Republican nominees they will face on Nov. 5.

GOP lieutenant governor nominee E.W. Jackson is a conservative black minister and abortion foe who likened abortion provider Planned Parenthood to the Ku Klux Klan. Republican attorney general pick Mark Obenshain sponsored unsuccessful Senate legislation requiring women to report unattended miscarriages to law enforcement.
