Terry McAuliffe and his Union bosses want to get rid of Right to Work. If we lose Right to Work, it will be the death knell for Virginia businesses. When I’m governor, it will be here to stay. pic.twitter.com/GAm9DKvRvl— Glenn Youngkin (@GlennYoungkin) September 22, 2021
The Liberal leadership in Richmond has overtaxed Virginians $2.6 billion. Terry McAuliffe thinks that this is his money, but when I’m governor, we’re going to lower taxes and give that money back to Virginians. pic.twitter.com/eN00q0WW5R— Glenn Youngkin (@GlennYoungkin) September 17, 2021
Lots of folks in DC are excited about this poll.
I’m incapable of pretending that I care about the outcome of the California recall election or the upcoming Virginia’s governor race which hinges on the fate of the state grocery tax.
“The Virginia gubernatorial race is shaping up to be much closer than previous elections, according to a new poll by the University of Mary Washington and Research America Inc.
The poll found that 48 percent of likely voters back Republican candidate Glenn Youngkin, while 43 percent support former Democratic governor Terry McAuliffe. However, among total registered voters, 46 percent back McAuliffe while 41 percent favor Youngkin. …”
We should have a dog in this fight.
Terry McAuliffe was the governor of Virginia at the time the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville. McAuliffe had his “state of emergency” ready to go and pulled the rug out from under us that day. We were lured into a trap because we were under the mistaken impression that federal court orders mattered in Virginia and that our civil liberties would be protected by the Virginia State Police. You can add to that grievance the destruction of Monument Avenue in Richmond and the removal of the monuments in Charlottesville and COVID fatigue and the outrage over CRT in the NOVA suburbs.
What is at stake in these races though? If Larry Elder had won in California, would that have changed the downward trajectory of the state? If Glenn Youngkin wins the governor’s race in Virginia, what will have been won? Will it bring back any of our monuments? Will it end CRT in public schools? Will our civil liberties be protected again in leftwing cesspools like Charlottesville and Richmond?
