RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- Of all the governors in states voting on Super Tuesday, none is more personally invested in the outcome than Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe.
A longtime fundraiser and confidante of Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, McAuliffe is hoping for a decisive Clinton victory on the March 1 primary.
Pundits expect Clinton to do well in Virginia, a moderate swing-state with a diverse Democratic electorate, against Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.
Key to a Clinton victory is a strong showing among African-American voters, and her campaign has worked to court black voters and lined up the support of most black state lawmakers.
But the Sanders campaign and its supporters feel that Virginia is still up for grabs.
