Newsmax reported last night that
Newsmax has declared GOP candidate Glenn Youngkin has defeated Democrat Terry McAuliffe in the Virginia gubernatorial election, held alongside local and state races across the nation on Tuesday night.
Decision Desk HQ also made its early projection via tweet at 8:37 p.m. ET. The latest AP ballot results from Virginia will be updated live here.
A McAuliffe loss in Virginia, which Democratic President Joe Biden won by a double-digit margin over Republican then-President Donald Trump last year, would represent a demoralizing setback for national Democrats. McAuliffe saw his lead in public polls evaporate in the campaign’s closing weeks.
McAuliffe came out to speak to his supporters at his election headquarters at 10:20 p.m. ET, but refused to concede the election, saying there was 18% of the vote remaining to be reported and he wanted to be sure every vote is counted.
He thanked his campaign staff and voters.
Trump trolled McAuliffe in a statement from his Save America PAC just after 9 p.m. ET on Tuesday night:
“It is looking like Terry McAuliffe’s campaign against a certain person named ‘Trump’ has very much helped Glenn Youngkin. All McAuliffe did was talk Trump, Trump, Trump and he lost! What does that tell you, Fake News? I guess people running for office as Democrats won’t be doing that too much longer. I didn’t even have to go rally for Youngkin, because McAuliffe did it for me. Thank you to the MAGA voters for turning out big!”
Trump praised his voter base for coming out for Youngkin in another Save America PAC statement:
“I would like to thank my BASE for coming out in force and voting for Glenn Youngkin. Without you, he would not have been close to winning. The MAGA movement is bigger and stronger than ever before. Glenn will be a great governor. Thank you to the people of the Commonwealth of Virginia and most particularly, to our incredible MAGA voters!”
Donald Trump Jr. declared Youngkin’s victory a slam on President Joe Biden, tweeting:
“When Biden wakes up tomorrow afternoon, somebody’s gonna have to tell him he’s now officially presiding over the collapse of the Democrat party”
The bruising campaign centered on issues including Youngkin’s ties to Donald Trump, the future of abortion rights, and culture war battles over schools. But voters saw the economy as the top issue, followed by the coronavirus pandemic, according to AP VoteCast, a survey of statewide voters.
Some 34% of Virginia voters ranked the economy as their No. 1 priority, compared to 17% saying COVID-19 and 14% choosing education. Those issues outranked health care, climate change, racism and abortion in the survey.
So, what does Youngkin’s victory mean?
It means that 10 months in to the Biden-Harris Administration, average Americans are fed up.
It also means that Democrats have, once again, overestimated the popularity of their failed Marxist Political Ideology and, most importantly, their own intelligence.
America has always, at least between the coasts here in the Heartland, been a nation of Traditional faith and Values…and individual freedom.
The freedom to worship, live our daily lives, and raise our children and grandchildren as WE see fit.
As shown by the fight against the teaching of Critical Race Theory in not just Virginia but other states across the nation, the overwhelming majority of Americans do not want anti-American Marxism being taught to our children.
We also believe in control over our own bodies.
Last night’s election result was a rejection of the Democrats and their Cradle-to-Grave Government intrusion into our daily lives.
The Democrats went hog wild after they succeeded in getting an incompetent demented old fool installed as the President of the United States of America.
They believed that they had it made and they could do anything that they wanted to including teaching racism in our public schools.
They did not count on something much more powerful than they could ever hope to be: LOVE.
A mother and father’s love for their children caused the Democrats’ downfall last night.
Virginia’s parents showed up to local School Board Meetings and, most importantly, on Election Day.
Yes, gentle readers, LOVE won the Virginia Gubernatorial Election.
LOVE ALWAYS WINS.
