BREAKING: Donald Trump Reminds Virginians That Glenn Youngkin is His Hand-Picked Candidate

by Democratic Party of Virginia

Richmond, VA — Glenn Youngkin has spent his entire campaign making clear that Donald Trump represents so much of why he’s running. Glenn has told Virginians he is “honored” to have Trump’s “complete and total” endorsement. Now, the disgraced former president is out with yet another statement of support for his hand-picked candidate.

This comes as Youngkin is repeatedly pressed for comment about his allegiance to Trump. Just this week, Glenn had a complete meltdown in a grocery store when asked a simple question about his support for the former president.

Earlier today, Trump appeared on The John Fredericks Show to fire a warning shot at his Virginia protege Glenn Youngkin: 

“The only guys that win are the guys that embrace the MAGA movement.” 

These developments are an important reminder that Glenn Youngkin is all in on Donald Trump and his most dangerous election conspiracies. Youngkin launched his campaign with an “election integrity task force” designed to advance Trump’s Big Lie, which he has called the “most important issue” in this campaign. Youngkin spent months lying about the 2020 election and is committed to the hardline Republican agenda of restricting voting rights.

Most recently, Youngkin headlined an insurrectionist-sponsored “election integrity” rally. This came after Youngkin suggested that the disgraced former president could be reinstated into office.

"As Donald Trump inches closer and closer to coming to Virginia, voters are being reminded of Youngkin’s complete allegiance to the former president," said DPVA spokesman Manuel Bonder. "This doesn’t seem great for Glenn Youngkin."
