‘I Don’t Think Corey Stewart Is A Racist’ Says NeverTrump Opponent

Republican Virginia U.S. Senate candidate Corey Stewart is not a racist, according to one of his opponents Nick Freitas, a state delegate whose campaign has been pushing racism accusations in the media.

“I don’t think Corey Stewart is a racist,” Nick Freitas says in his new television ad, putting to rest a manufactured controversy.

Corey Stewart, the chairman of the Prince William County Board of Supervisors, is seen as the front-runner in this coming Tuesday’s Republican Senate primary. In a last-ditch bid to activate the media, the Freitas campaign pushed the narrative that Stewart once complimented a fellow political candidate who later revealed that he held white supremacist views.

Big League Politics reported on the Daily Wire reporter Kassy Dillon’s attempt to coerce the leader of the Liberty University Republicans to write a letter calling for Liberty University president Jerry Falwell Jr. to withdraw his endorsement of Corey Stewart.

Peter D’Abrosca reports:

Avowed NeverTrumper Ben Shapiro is using his platform to coax college Republicans at Liberty University into pressuring the school’s president to drop his endorsement of Virginia GOP Senate Candidate Corey Stewart.

Text messages obtained by Big League Politics show that a member of the Liberty University College Republicans, Ian Trey Parish, spoke with Kassy Dillon of Daily Wire, and that the outlet wanted the incoming Student Body President, Jacob Page, to draft a letter to university president Jerry Falwell Jr. demanding that he drop his endorsement of Stewart.

The following is the text exchange between Parish and Page:

In deleted social media posts from 2015 and 2016, Freitas referred to President Trump as a “5-time draft deferring ‘tough guy’ who would “take some candy from a small child . . . or maybe kick a kitten,” according to the Washington Post.

He also wrote on social media that Trump was not a candidate for “liberty-minded conservatives,” a statement which Trump has proven false in his first 15 months in office.
