More McAullife press
The New Republic has a decent write-up on Terry McAullife and his gubernatorial run, which highlights, among other things, his energy and enthusiasm and his love of chicken waste. Following McAuliffe to several campaign meet-and-greets, the author, Eve Fairbanks, shows his ability to sway even the staunchest skeptics, while pointing out that his talented ability to fundraise can both help local candidates and organize the electorate at Obama-type levels. The article concludes with an awkward interaction between McAuliffe and a mother of an autistic child.
