After a battle for the nation’s morality was on trial, Glenn Youngkin beat the Democratic candidate for Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia, Terry McAuliffe, yesterday. Republicans fought on the side of parents and medical freedom, while the Democrats fought to keep CRT and Teachers Unions in control of the school and vaccine mandates.
Youngkin, endorsed late in the game by President Trump, won the hearts of Democrats throughout Virginia after the election became a fight for individual rights, including a parent’s right to control their child’s education. The stunning upset is said to be the bellwether for the 2022 midterms. If Republicans can make strides in traditionally Democrat areas of Virginia, the rest of the country is likely feeling the same pull to the Conservative message.

Right now, the Republican party has a choice; whether to understand this doesn’t have anything to do with the policies of Kevin McCarthy and Mitch McConnell. The people of Virginia came out and voted with Youngkin because he fought for “kitchen table issues.” People want to give their children a good education free of racist ideology like CRT.

Just four days ago, Vice President Kamala Harris told a crowd at a Terry McAuliffe rally that “What happens in Virginia will in large part determine what happens in 2022, 2024, and on.”
According to the Washington Post exit polls, several issues were raised as reasons to vote for the Republican Glenn Youngkin as the Governor of Virginia, but the least of which was the Pandemic and Abortion. Virginia voters chose Taxes, the Economy/Jobs, and Education as their top three issues.
From the Washington Post:
“About one-third of Virginia voters said that the economy was the most important issue facing Virginia, according to preliminary network exit polling. That followed by about one-quarter naming education as the most important issue in their vote. Fewer than 2 in 10 said taxes or coronavirus were their top issues, and about 1 in 10 said abortion.”
When the Post asked voters how much control parents should have over their child’s education and what they are taught in school, 76% of parents, who overwhelming voted for Glenn Youngkin, said it mattered “A Lot.”
When voters were asked about vaccine mandates, 55% of voters favored them, while 42% stood against employers requiring the covid vaccine for employees.
