Mr. Perriello finished the campaign Monday with a series of stops in Northern Virginia, including a final rally with Khizr Khan, the Muslim father of slain United States Army Captain Humayun Khan, and who became a major critic of Mr. Trump in the 2016 election.

While Perriello may have embraced the party's progressive, populist mantle more than Northam, there are few gaps between the two when it comes to policy. Mark R. Warner and Tim Kaine, spent his final day of campaigning with four stops across Hampton Roads.

Without that last job, he would have never been introduced to politics or be running for the election this year.
While VirginiaDemocrats are tasked with deciding who will earn the party's nomination in a neck-in-neck race, the candidates are test-running a blue-on-blue game plan that might pave the way for future candidates heading into the 2018 midterms and even the 2020 election.
