Youngkin Statement on Democrat Candidate Debate

June 1, 2021

FALLS CHURCH, VA – Political outsider, successful business leader, and Republican nominee for governor Glenn Youngkin released the following statement regarding today’s Virginia Democrat gubernatorial primary debate:

“Terry McAuliffe is clearly struggling to earn the confidence of his party or demonstrate that he has a firm grasp of the facts. I agree with Justin Fairfax – Terry seems to have trouble giving a straight answer. I agree with Lee Carter – Terry seems to be selling only more divisiveness. I agree with Jennifer Carroll Foy – Terry likes to talk like he wasn’t already governor, but he’s a politician of the past who had his chance and he failed. And I agree with Jennifer McClellan – under the McAuliffe-Northam regime, Virginians have lost faith in Richmond’s ability to solve problems.

“I will be a new kind of leader, one who brings people together around our shared values to solve problems and get things done. Another career politician isn’t going to get Virginia back on the right track. That’s why I stepped away from my 30-year business career to serve the people of Virginia. I want to bring our Commonwealth together like never before so every person who calls Virginia home can achieve a brighter future.”
