Last week, Kamala Harris said, “What happens in Virginia will in large part determine what happens in 2022, 2024, and on.”
And wow, FOR ONCE, I hope she’s right.
It was an absolute bloodbath for Democrats in Virginia.
Despite Joe Biden, Barack Obama, and Kamala Harris attempting to rally support for the Democrat candidate, Terry McAuliffe, he lost. Republican Glenn Youngkin flipped the blue state, which Biden won by 10 points, into a red state by winning about 51% of the vote, compared to 48% for McAuliffe.
President Trump released a statement about the awesome win saying: “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.”
While the liberal media will do anything they can to paint this race as somehow being POST-TRUMP, Trump’s statement is totally right. His vocal support was vital turning out the vote on Tuesday. And nearly 1.7 million people voted for Youngkin – which is ALMOST as many as the 1.9 million Virginians who voted for Trump in 2020.
This is still MAGA country.
