VA State Senator And Member of Obama's 'Truth Team' Says Racism Fueling Romney Campaign


<p>Virginia State Senator Louise Lucas (D) <a href="… on</a> the John Fredericks Morning Show and said that racism is driving the Romney campaign. </p><p><strong>HOST:</strong> Do you really believe now that this all about race?</p>
<p><strong>LUCAS:</strong> I absolutely believe it's all about race and
for the first time I've convinced my children finally that racism is
alive and well.</p>
<p><strong>HOST:</strong> Even in Virginia?</p>
<p><strong>LUCAS:</strong> In Virginia how about all across this nation. And especially in Virginia!</p>
<p><strong>HOST:</strong> So, do you think race as this campaign goes on through this summer...</p>
<p><strong>LUCAS:</strong> We need to have this discussion because it
has not become addressed appropriately. And we do need to have that
discussion. And I know that there are people who are cringing in their
seats because they don't want to hear it but it's time that we face the
reality that we need to have a national discussion on racial issues</p>
<p><strong>HOST:</strong> State Senator, in your view, how do you think the race issue then will be addressed now?</p>
<p><strong>LUCAS:</strong> I don't believe the President can leave this
discussion because it would be precieved in a way that would not be
beneficial to him because the Republicans will try to make habit but
there needs to be some kind of forum to deal with these issues.</p><p>Lucas is a surrogate of Obama's official "Truth Team" in Virginia. </p><p>(h/t <a href="… Nation</a>)</p>
