McCain senior adviser Nancy Pfotenhauer suggested northern Virginia is not like the rest of the "more southern in nature" parts of the state. Northern Virginia is really "metro D.C." like.
Gee, I wonder what she meant by that...?
Here's how the Washington Post reported it:
McCain senior adviser Nancy Pfotenhauer, a self-described "proud resident of Oakton, Virginia," said on MSNBC that "Democrats have just come in from the District of Columbia and moved into Northern Virginia, and that's really what you see there. But the rest of the state, real Virginia, if you will, I think will be very responsive to Senator McCain's message."
Program host Kevin Corke asked Pfotenhauer if she wanted to retract the comment, prompting her to reply, "I mean 'real Virginia' because Northern Virginia is where I've always been, but 'real Virginia' I take to be the -- this part of the state that is more Southern in nature, if you will. Northern Virginia is really metro D.C."
Virginia Democrats … pointing out that McCain and his wife own a condominium in the northern part of the state and that the McCain campaign's national headquarters is also located there.
