Politifact Virginia: Personhood amendment claims

Posted: Updated:
RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

We are in the midst of a heated Senate race. So in the coming weeks, Politifact Virginia will be examining the claims the candidates are making about each other.

This week, we're taking a closer look at a claim Mark Warner made about a Ed Gillespie during a recent debate.

Warner claimed Gillespie supports a personhood amendment. Gillespie denies the charge.

So who's right? Politifact Virginia says Warner's claim is false. Sean Gorman says Warner has yet to prove his argument.

"We couldn't find any record of him saying this campaign that he supported the personhood amendment. Not only that when we put the question directly to Gillespie's campaign they said that he does not support a personhood amendment," said Gorman.
