Speaking with Democratic supporters and campaign volunteers, Bowser talked about the importance of believing “climate change is real” and said Democrats will focus on transportation and education before mentioning Republican candidate Ed Gillespie’s plan for tax cuts.

“Certainly those terrible tax cuts are going to kill us–kill us,” she said. “And so we need a Governor of Virginia that’s going to help lead the entire Virginia delegation so that we’re really supporting the middle class and not just the big guys.”

She then asked the crowd if they could imagine taking money out of neighborhoods like the one they were canvassing in, and giving it to “billionaires like Donald Trump.”

“No!” the crowd yelled.

“That’s exactly what’s on the table,” Bowser said.

Gillespie’s tax cut plan “cuts individual income tax rates by 10 percent across-the-board, putting nearly $1,300 per year back into the pockets of a family of four,” according to his campaign website.

Virginia’s gubernatorial election between Gillespie and his Democratic opponent, Ralph Northam, will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 7. Read more: WFB
