Dareh Gregorian and Hallie Jackson // Va. Gov. Northam’s yearbook pic of men in blackface, Klan robe spurs calls for his resignation – New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy, a fellow Democrat, said on MSNBC’s “All in with Chris Hayes” that Northam doesn’t seem to have a choice other than to resign.
“I know him and I think he’s a good man, but as you said earlier, it is disqualifying,” Murphy said of the photo. “Particularly at this time, with the division in this country.”
Northam was resisting those calls Friday night. He tweeted out a video of his apology, but added that he had promised to fight for Virginia, and “I’m committed to continuing that fight through the remainder of my term.”
