Virginia AG, a Vocal Trump Critic, Announces 2021 Bid for Governor
By Associated Press
Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring says he's going to run for governor.
Herring, a Democrat, told the Washington Post he's planning to run in 2021.
Virginia does not allow governors to seek consecutive terms, meaning current Gov. Ralph Northam cannot run for re-election.
Herring is a former state senator who became attorney general in 2014. He easily won re-election last year as voters unhappy with President Donald Trump gave Democrats a huge boost at the polls.
