Republican gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin released a the first video in a series that his campaign says will “highlight all talk, no action politician Terry McAuliffe’s same old recycled rhetoric and promises that he failed to deliver on the first time he was governor.”
McAuliffe’s campaign responded to the new video in a statement provided to Virginia Scope. “Glenn Youngkin has already shown Virginians he will be a failure when it comes to controlling this pandemic and rebuilding Virginia’s economy,” said Renzo Olivari, a spokesperson for McAuliffe. “He peddles such dangerous anti-vaxx and anti-mask rhetoric that doctors in Virginia have asked him to stop undermining measures that will prevent the spread of this virus. As Virginia’s 72nd Governor, Terry created 200,000 new jobs, cut unemployment in every locality and he is the only candidate in this race who has released 19 new policy plans that will get Virginians vaccinated, keep our kids in schools, and create a better future for all Virginians.”
