Jeff Dove Responds to Racist Comments Made by Joe Biden

Manassas, VA | May 22, 2020 – Jeff Dove, candidate for Virginia’s 10th Congressional District, made the following statement regarding the racist comment made by Joe Biden on “The Breakfast Club” this morning: “This morning, Joe Biden made a truly unthinkable comment, stating, “I tell you if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”

Dove stated “It is no surprise to me that Joe Biden or any democrat for that matter would make such a comment. The Democrat party has taken for granted the votes of African Americans for decades now.”

However, what is truly shocking is the lack of condemnation that the comment has received from members of Biden’s own party. Biden himself only half apologized, saying it was a comment made “in jest.” Apart from that comment, silence from the Democrats, and not a word from Rep. Jennifer Wexton. “For a person who ran on inclusion and common decency, it is abhorrent at best that Jennifer Wexton has been silent on these comments. One can only assume that silence is agreement with the statement. Virginia can do better.” Dove said.

Dove is an Iraq War Army combat veteran and a businessman who is running to replace Wexton in Northern Virginia’s 10th District.
