Despite the controversy over a racist photo his medical school yearbook page, Gov. Ralph Northam insists he is the best person to lead Virginia, once the heart of the Confederacy, and says he can help the state "heal."
Northam referenced the state's 400 years of slavery in his interview with Gayle King on "Face the Nation," and referred to enslaved Africans as "indentured servants from Africa." "Also known as slavery," King interjected. Virginia Gov. Northam also said Lt. Gov. Fairfax should resign if the allegations of sexual assault against him are true, in an interview with Gayle King on CBS News' "Face the Nation" while refusing to do the same.
Northam: "These accusations are very, very serious. As you know Gov. Fairfax has called for an investigation. I really think where we are now we need to get to the truth; the truth is important. And certainly ... if these accusations are determined to be true. I don't think he has any other option but to resign."
