WATCH: Glenn Youngkin Talks With Tucker Carlson About What’s At Stake in Virginia Under Democrat Control

May 5, 2021

"Virginians are ready for a change"

FALLS CHURCH, VA – Conservative Republican business leader and candidate for Virginia governor Glenn Youngkin joined Tucker Carlson on Fox News last night and sounded the alarm about what is at stake in November if Democrats retain control and the liberal McAuliffe-Northam Administration continues for more than decade.

Youngkin said:

"What we're seeing from the Democrats, and particularly from Terry McAuliffe, is that they're on the wrong side of every issue. When it comes to business, they want to take away our Right to Work status in Virginia. I want to keep our Right to Work status and keep Virginia moving.

"In education, they want to teach our kids what to think, they want to teach them critical race theory, and they want to take accelerated math out of the curriculum. I want to teach our kids how to think and not have critical race theory in the curriculum, and actually, yes, teach accelerated math.

"Terry McAuliffe wants to take away qualified immunity from our law enforcement so they can be pursued with frivolous civil lawsuits. And I want to protect qualified immunity so that our law enforcement officers know that we're not only going to invest in them, but their governor has their back.

"And Terry McAuliffe agrees with Joe Biden that, in fact, these amendments of our Constitution are not absolute. He even said recently that religious exemption should not be the basis for laws. And I want to stand up for our Constitution and protect our First Amendment, our Second Amendment, and our right to life.

"Virginians are ready for a change. We're ready for a governor who's got a business career, who knows how to get things done and deliver results, not empty promises, and to put Virginia back on the path to be the best state in the country to live, and work, and raise a family."

On Sunday, U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) announced his endorsement of Youngkin. Cruz will join Youngkin on the campaign trail in Virginia today and tomorrow.

Youngkin – who pledged to not accept a salary as governor – was also endorsed by Governor Kevin Stitt (R-OK), conservative radio icon Hugh Hewitt, and the conservative group Middle Resolution PAC.

As CBS News in Charlottesville recently reported, election observers believe that if there’s any Republican that can beat liberal Terry McAuliffe in November, it’s Glenn Youngkin.
