The Democratic Governor’s Association called for Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam Friday to resign over a racist yearbook photo minutes before he was gave a press conference refusing to step down over the controversy.

“The photo of Ralph Northam’s yearbook that surfaced yesterday is both racist and inexcusable,” Gov. Gina Raimondo (D-RI) and DGA Chair Elect Gov. Phil Murphy (D-NJ) said in a statement. “It is time for Gov. Northam to step aside and allow Virginia to move forward.”
