Northan denies being in the yearbook photo even though he had apologized for it Friday and said previously that he was in it.
MARTIN: As the calls for resignation from political leaders on both sides of the aisle continue, Virginians who have supported Northam are wrestling with what to make of what's been a unusual and painful 48 hours.
Northam, standing by his wife Pam, said he believed it was possible some photographs in the yearbook had been switched.
While he may not have appeared in that picture, Northam later admitted to once darkening his face in an attempt to resemble Michael Jackson for a 1984 dance contest.
During the same press conference, Northam revealed that he once wore blackface for a Michael Jackson dance contest, which occurred around the same year the offensive photo was taken.
After he spoke, both of Virginia's us senators said they called Northam to tell him that he must resign, as he had "irrevocably broken the trust Virginians must have in their leaders".
Ed Gillespie, who ran for Governor of the Great State of Virginia against Ralph Northam, must now be thinking Malpractice and Dereliction of Duty with regard to his Opposition Research Staff. "He's going to do the right thing".
His refusal to step down could signal a potentially long and bruising fight between Northam and virtually all of the state's Democratic establishment.
He also noted that he had no intention of resigning despite calls from both Democrats and Republicans.
If Northam steps down, Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax would step up.
The state's Republican House speaker said there is "a rightful hesitation" among lawmakers to seek Northam's impeachment or removal, and they are hoping he steps down instead. It will include African Americans and other people of color.
Northam was pushed repeatedly by reporters to explain why he issued an apology if he wasn't in the photograph.

Watch Maroon 5’s Super Bowl Half Time Performance If You Dare
" Maroon 5 headlined the Super Bowl halftime show , with throwback songs like 'This Love " as well as their more recent hits. All of the above distress and disappointment seemed to come to the fore during last night's Superbowl halftime performance.
"I have worked closely with Ralph Northam over many years".
The former governor added, "Well, first he said it was Friday night".
"Once that picture with the blackface and klansman came out there is no way you can continue to be the governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia", McAuliffe said on CNN's State of the Union on Sunday.
But McAuliffe said Northam's explanation was too little, too late.
He said he believed the only way to clear his name would be to stay in office and prove it was not him in the photo. "Instinctively, you know if you put black paint on your face". I had a glove, and I used just a little bit of shoe polish to put on my cheeks, and the reason I used just a very little bit is that you can not get show polish off. There is no Democrat that I know that I have ever met who supports infanticide, not one.
"It doesn't matter whether he was in that photo or not in the photo at this point". We have to close that chapter.
Northam stood his ground in calls to old friends and colleagues Saturday night, saying he meant to stay and fight, according to three people who received those calls.
Stressing that it wasn't Northam, Marsh added, "No, I don't think it's him". "And so I think that's why I think we have called for the resignation". Among those offended was apparently at least one former classmate of Northam's, according to The Post.
The news outlet that first reported on the existence of the photo was the website Big League Politics, whose editor in chief told The Washington Post that the tip came from a "concerned citizen". He stood by me when I restored more (unintelligible) rights than any governor in American history and was sued by the Republicans.
The scandal threatens to cripple Northam's ability to govern. He is a member of a predominantly black church.
Some of Northam's graduate school friends say they are shocked by the photo.
On Saturday the Democrat from Virginia denied he was either person in that 1984 photo and rejected calls to resign.
Late last month, Florida's secretary of state resigned after photos surfaced of him in blackface as a Hurricane Katrina victim at a 2005 Halloween party.
