Panelists on CNN’s Erin Burnett OutFront said that embattled Virginia governor Ralph Northam will probably not last 24 hours in the governorship following Big League Politics’ publication of a medical school yearbook photo showing Northam and a friend dressed in black face and a Ku Klux Klan hood, respectively.
Black lawmakers in Virginia convened an emergency meeting to discuss the Northam crisis.

CNN contributor April Ryan said that Ralph Northam will not survive this political scandal.
Burnett noted that Northam acknowledged his presence in this photo, and apologized. But his apology rings false with national leaders. Kamala Harris, Julian Castro, and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) have all called for Northam to resign.
