Terry McAuliffe (born February 9, 1957) is the 72nd governor of Virginia. who served as chairman of the Democratic National Committee from 2001-2005. In 2008 he served as chairman of the Hillary Clinton Presidential Campaign.

As the 2008 Democratic primaries came to a close and it became clear that Hillary Clinton's campaign was over, McAuliffe appeared on the MSNBC show "Morning Joe" with a bottle of rum. After drinking several shots—an action which may have violated the group Mothers Against Drunk Driving's media guidelines [1]— he admitted that Hillary Clinton knew she had lost the 2008 primary race. On January 3, 2009, McAuliffe uploaded a YouTube video in which he announced that he would be running for Governor of Virginia in the Democratic primaries.[2] He lost the nomination to Creigh Deeds, who in turn went on to lose to the Republican Bob McDonnell in the general election.
