Ahead of the November Election, 88.9 WCVE has invited each of the candidates for Mayor of Richmond to discuss their ideas on some of the toughest issues facing the city.

In this candidate profile 88.9 WCVE’s Craig Carper speaks to former Delegate Joe Morrissey.


Craig Carper: Why are you running, and what are the top three issues you would like to tackle as mayor?

WCVE Exclusive 4th District Congressional Debate

Johnson Says 2016 Will Be Last Whitehouse Bid

Libertarian Presidential nominee Gary Johnson says this is his last bid for the Whitehouse.

The former Republican Governor of New Mexico made the statement while wrapping up a daylong, multi-stop trip in central Virginia Monday night (10/17).

After speaking at both Liberty University and the University of Virginia, Governor Johnson appeared at Richmond’s Hippodrome Theater where he told 88.9 WCVE he won’t run again.

VP Debate Fails To Sway Undecided

Political experts say Vice Presidential debates typically don’t sway voters opinions.

That seems to hold true for at least one Longwood University student who watched last night’s (10/4) debate from inside the exclusive venue. Junior business major Michael Sevride says seeing Governor Mike Pence and Senator Tim Kaine in-person added a new dimension to debate-watching. But even with the palpable moments of tension and levity, he says neither candidate’s quips, attacks or policy points were enough to lure him from the undecided camp.
