With the DNC race now over, the epicenter of the divisive Democratic civil war is the Virginia Democratic gubernatorial primary.

Pretty soon the Tom Perriello Virginia voters once knew will be unrecognizable. That’s because Perriello has flip-flopped on so many positions, it’s like he’s a completely new person.

While the Democratic civil war is a nationwide phenomenon, nowhere is it being fought with as much intensity as in the Virginia Democratic primary for governor. The two leading Democrats are locked in a fierce competition to see who can be the most liberal.

The growing Democratic civil war means that many politicians are now deciding to move into more extreme and liberal positions. Many do this hoping to appeal to the same people who fueled Senator Bernie Sanders’ insurgent presidential campaign. One politician who has already shown an inclination to do this is Virginia gubernatorial candidate Tom Perriello.
