Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Tom Perez said that he hopes and expects embattled Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D-VA) to resign from office soon during an interview with MSNBC on Monday.

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes asked Perez whether he still thought Northam should resign after a controversial photo from Northam’s medical school yearbook surfaced last week and if Perez had any information about Northam’s decision-making process.

“Well, I hope and I actually expect he will step down,” Perez said. “He’s lost the confidence of the residents of Virginia.”

Perez added “this is not a tenable situation for him,” and that the Democrat Party would not stand for conduct that is inconsistent with its values.

“I still believe that he will in short order understand that he has lost the ability to govern,” Perez said. “He needs to put the commonwealth over himself, and I’m hopeful he’ll do that.”
