President Trump recorded a late robo-call urging Virginia voters to support Republican gubernatorial candidate Ed Gillespie ahead of Tuesday's election, according to multiple reports.

Trump's appeal to voters slams the Democratic candidate, Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam, for his leadership in the state's economy, Politico reported.

"If you let Ralph Northam be governor, he will be a total disaster for your state. Northam is weak on crime, weak on immigration, and as your lieutenant governor, Northam has driven your economy right into a ditch," Trump said in the call, according to Politico.

Gillespie has connected Northam to MS-13 gang violence in a series of controversial ads aired during the Virginia race, which the Democratic candidate has called "false attacks."
