'He's lost the authority to lead': Calls continue for Virginia governor to resign over racist photo

On Meet the Press, Rep. Donald McEachin, a Virginia Democrat and member of the Congressional Black Caucus, said that “He’s lost the authority to govern. He has to resign. It’s in the best interest of the commonwealth. It’s in the best interest of the party.” The Virginia Legislative Black Caucus also continued to call for Northam to resign.

Northam would be replaced by Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax, currently Virginia’s only black statewide elected official.
