We are three days away from the Virginia Gubernatorial election, and other state races, both executive and legislative, in the Commonwealth.
Virginia has become “Blue” in recent years, but now there is concern, based on some polls, that Terry McAuliffe who was governor from 2013-2017, and is trying to become governor again, may be trailing in public opinion polls to Republican Glenn Youngkin, a Donald Trump acolyte, who would turn Virginia backward after great progress in recent years!
It is not just the governorship, but also other state executive positions and control of the Virginia legislature at stake!
A victory for Youngkin, who has no government experience, would embolden Donald Trump, while a defeat for Youngkin would help to undermine Donald Trump!
It is urgent that those who voted for Joe Biden, who won Virginia in 2020 by ten points, get out there and vote!
The Virginia Gubernatorial election is the most crucial for Joe Biden and the Democratic Party in November, as Terry McAuliffe, who was a successful Governor from 2014-2018, is being challenged by Republican Glenn Youngkin, a businessman with no government experience, but supported wholeheartedly by former President Donald Trump.
Virginia has become very “Blue” in recent elections, and has set a standard for good state government, and it is important for a Trump lackey to be defeated, so as to undermine Donald Trump’s influence and opportunity to consider running again for President.
If McAuliffe wins soundly, it will be seen as a rebuke to Donald Trump, and might encourage some Republicans to stop bowing down to him, as if he is automatically entitled to be the Presidential nominee in 2024.
Courageous Republicans who want to save the party need for Trump and his lackeys to face defeat in Virginia and in 2022!
Here we are, about a month out from the comparatively small number of elections taking place this November.
This includes the gubernatorial elections in Virginia and New Jersey; the Mayoral Election in New York City; and many other municipal elections in smaller cities.
The only real concern for Democrats is Virginia, where former Governor Terry McAuliffe is being challenged by Republican Glenn Youngkin.
The New Jersey gubernatorial race seems an easy win for Governor Phil Murphy, and the NYC Mayoralty race seems an easy win for Eric Adams.
Once these elections are over, the real competition for the Senate and House of Representatives seats in 2022 Midterms begins, as well as gubernatorial races, particularly the latter for Republicans, who plan to run for President, such Trump lackeys as Ron DeSantis of Florida, Greg Abbott of Texas, and Kristi Noem of South Dakota!
