Virginia Governor Ralph Northam now denies appearing in a racist photograph that he on Friday apologized for.

The 59-year-old from Nassawadox has done a complete about face according to a fellow Virginia Democrat who spoke to the Associated Press off the record about a private conversation that had occurred.

It comes as Northam was allegedly calling state lawmakers Saturday to try and gain support so he can remain in office despite top politicians calling on him to resign after seeing a picture of two people wearing a Ku Klux Klan robe and another in blackface.

House Speaker Kirk Cox and Senate Majority Leader Tommy Norment said Saturday the governor had lost the public’s confidence, and it is in the state’s best interests for him to step down.

The Republicans join a growing chorus of elected officials in Virginia and elsewhere.

He lost support from virtually the entire state Democratic party and other key allies, who urged the governor to leave office.

The Virginia Legislative Black Caucus, the state House Democratic Caucus and the state Senate Democratic Caucus all called on Northam to resign late Friday, along with several key progressive groups that have been some of the governor’s closest political allies.

Their calls for Northam to step down came in a wave late Friday, after the Democrat confirmed in an apology on Friday that he had appeared in the photo in the 1984 yearbook from Eastern Virginia Medical School, but vowed to serve his full term in office.

He apologized for appearing in a ‘racist and offensive’ costume, but did not specify which of the two men in the photo was him.
