Republican businessman Glenn Youngkin is now the governor-elect of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Newsmax called the race late Tuesday.
Youngkin performed well across the state, sweeping the suburban and rural counties. Larry Sabato of the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia told MSNBC a high-ranking McAuliffe official called it a “bloodbath.”
Supporters of Youngkin told the press they ranked education as the No. 1 reason for choosing him over McAuliffe.
Former President Trump thanked “MAGA voters” for pushing Youngkin over the finish line and he took a shot at McAuliffe
“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!” Trump said in a statement. “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!”
And former Vice President Mike Pence also congratulated Youngkin.
“Congratulations to Governor @GlennYoungkin on a HUGE victory!” Pence tweeted. “Glenn will serve the people of Old Dominion well with common sense Conservative policies that will benefit parents, families, and hard-working Virginians! The Conservative Comeback is HERE!”
