Youngkin Announces Confirmed Participation in Northern Virginia Gubernatorial Debate

July 26, 2021

FALLS CHURCH, VA - Political outsider, successful business leader, and Republican nominee for governor Glenn Youngkin’s campaign announced today that Youngkin has confirmed his participation in a Northern Virginia gubernatorial debate which will be held at George Mason University.

“Glenn Youngkin looks forward to debating career politician and Clinton crony Terry McAuliffe, and hearing him explain his poor performance as governor,” said Youngkin spokesperson Macaulay Porter. “McAuliffe has still not accepted the August debate, but we hope he will soon.”

The debates Youngkin has committed to are:

  •  Hampton University and Liberty University in late August
  •  The Appalachian School of Law in Grundy on September 16
  • The Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce, NBC4/Telemundo 44 and the Schar School of Public Policy and Government at George Mason University

Unlike McAuliffe, Youngkin committed in March to the debate at the Appalachian School of Law.
