RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Two of the candidates for Virginia governor, Democrat Ralph Northam and Republican Ed Gillespie, have released statements following the chaos in Charlottesville on their stances for removal of the monuments.
Northam says he is in favor of moving the statues to museums and erecting monuments to other civil rights advocates:
Gillespie is against removing the monuments, as they show Virginia's history "mostly for the better, but at times for the worse":
