Terry McAuliffe, who served as the 72th Governor of Virginia from 2014-2018, and is frequently mentioned as a top contender for the presidency, will address Democratic prospects for the midterm elections and 2020 elections.

In 2018, McAuliffe is barnstorming the country to help Democrats win elections from state house to the House of Representatives.

McAuliffe's new role as State Engagement Chair of the National Democratic Redistricting Committee -- a group formed with former president Barack Obama, Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi and former attorney general Eric Holder -- is working to ensure that Democrats elect more governors and gain back control of drawing state legislative maps.

McAuliffe left office having turned once purple Virginia blue in 2016 for former secretary Hillary Clinton, nearly flipped control of the Republican House of Delegates over to Democrats in 2017 and
helped elect a hand-picked Democratic successor in Virginia's newest governor, Ralph Northam as well as the Lt. Governor and Attorney General.

McAuliffe served as Chairman of the DNC, Chairman of Bill Clinton's presidential campaign and chair of the National Governors Association.
