BREAKING: Glenn Youngkin Victorious, Will Become Next Governor Of Virginia With Mandate To Reform Education

111

The Virginia gubernatorial race has been called for Republican Glenn Youngkin, who sailed to victory on a wave of widespread disgust with the public school system in Virginia, even as loser Terry McAuliffe based his campaign around stripping parental involvement from the public school system.

“I’ve seen enough: Glenn Youngkin (R) defeats Terry Mcauliffe (D) in the Virginia governor’s race” wrote campaign analyst Dave Wasserman on Twitter at 8:27 p.m. ET. Soon after, Wasserman added, “To my eye, we’re on track for a 2-5 pt Youngkin win.”

When the race was called, Youngkin was ahead by 55.1% of the vote to McAuliffe’s 44.3% of the vote. Fringe candidate Princess Blanding received 0.7% of the vote.

The election results will likely be viewed as a rebuke of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, who both campaigned for Terry McAuliffe in the waning days of the campaign.

Worse, it is a clear indictment against Critical Race Theory, LGBTQ teaching materials, and transgender bathroom policies in public schools. Youngkin’s campaign was far behind in the polls before McAuliffe came out vocally against parents, suggesting that he does not believe parents have any role in the modern education system.

It appears, with a victory, Youngkin has a mandate to fundamentally transform Virginia’s education system into a pro-America prototype for other states, presenting the traditionally blue state of Virginia with an opportunity to lead on a critical conservative issue.

Youngkin is the second high profile Republican victory for the night. Earlier, Virginia’s Democrat Attorney General Mark Herring lost his race to Republican challenger Jason Miyares, who based his campaign around education and his Cuban ancestry.

As National File reported, Herring admitted to wearing blackface in 2019, soon after National File Senior Reporter Patrick Howley exposed outgoing Democrat Governor Ralph Northam for wearing either blackface or Ku Klux Klan robes in his medical school yearbook. The Democrat loser said:

“In 1980, when I was a 19-year-old undergraduate in college, some friends suggested we attend a party dressed like rappers we listened to at the time, like Kurtis Blow, and perform a song,” Herring said in a statement at the time. “It sounds ridiculous even now writing it. But because of our ignorance and glib attitudes – and because we did not have an appreciation for the experiences and perspectives of others – we dressed up and put on wigs and brown makeup.”

“This was a onetime occurrence and I accept full responsibility for my conduct. That conduct clearly shows that, as a young man, I had a callous and inexcusable lack of awareness and insensitivity to the pain my behavior could inflict on others. It was really a minimization of both people of color, and a minimization of a horrific history I knew well even then.”
