FALLS CHURCH, VA – Republican nominee for governor Glenn Youngkin today announced the endorsements of three former Republican governors of Virginia, Bob McDonnell, George Allen, and Jim Gilmore.

"Glenn Youngkin is the political outsider, problem solver, and new kind of leader that Virginia needs,” said Governors McDonnell, Gilmore, and Allen. "As a successful business leader, he knows how to get things done. He stepped away from his business career because he loves Virginia and wants to serve all Virginians. With Glenn’s proven business experience, he will be a breath of fresh air in Richmond and bring real change. He has what it takes to reignite Virginia's economy, grow opportunity for all and create jobs. Glenn will lift up every community in our Commonwealth, prioritize public safety, and make sure our schools are focused on achieving excellence and preparing children to succeed. Glenn brings a positive optimistic spirit to the job and will get results by bringing people together across party lines to solve problems.​ He is laser focused on rebuilding Virginia into the best place in America to live, work, and raise a family, and we are proud to stand with him because we know he can win and then positively lead all Virginians forward!”

“It’s such an honor to have the support of Governors Bob McDonnell, George Allen, and Jim Gilmore.” said Youngkin. “Virginians are coming together like never before, and with our dynamic grassroots campaign, we will take our message to new voters, Democrats, and independents, and win in November.”
