From "McAuliffe stumps in Roanoke":
Terry McAuliffe, widely considered the front-runner among the three candidates for the Democratic nomination for governor, brought his high-energy campaign to the Roanoke Valley again over the weekend.
McAuliffe stepped out of a black sport utility vehicle about 1:30 p.m. Sunday into a group of about 30 supporters at Mill Mountain Coffee and Tea on the Roanoke City Market. [my emphasis]
I'm sure the reporter mistook that Prius for a "sport utility vehicle." Democratic politicians would never be so stupid as to ride to a campaign event in a gas-guzzling, global warming exacerbating SUV.
