Virginia governor to hold news conference, not planning to resign: NBC

(Reuters) - Virginia Governor Ralph Northam will hold a news conference at 2:30 p.m. ET on Saturday and does not plan to resign, U.S. network NBC said, citing a spokesperson for the governor.

Northam is facing mounting pressure from his Democratic party to resign after a photograph surfaced which he said on Friday showed him and another person in racist garb at a party decades earlier.
