The Democratic front runner as successor to the Governor of Virginia, Ralph Northam, criticized the new state budget, which Northam recently described as “very progressive”.
McAuliffe blew the new budget signed by Northam, saying the state would have “bigger problems” if it could not find more money to invest in public schools.
Northam announced that it signed the budget on Monday, calling the measure “great” and saying it was a “very progressive” budget.
“Virginia recently approved a $ 135 billion budget,” McAuliffe tweeted. “If we can’t find $ 2 billion to invest in our students, we’ll have bigger problems.”
Neither Northam’s office nor McAuliffe’s campaign responded immediately to Fox News’ request for comment.
Northam signed the billion dollar budget after the Virginia General Assembly concluded a special session to bring the measure across the finish line.
