RICHMOND, Va. (WUSA9) -- Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe stopped by Washington Redskins training camp Friday morning in Richmond, where he weighed on the hottest topic surrounding the team: the future of it's name.

"I have continuously said it is not up to a governor to decide what a private business should do with their business," McAuliffe said.

The governor told reporters his first job is to improve the Virginia economy and create jobs within the state, and the Redskins are helping do that.

"I have a team here that is growing our economy...I am appreciative of what the Washington Redskins have meant to the Commonwealth of Virginia," McAuliffe said.
