Six Months After the Capitol Insurrection, Glenn Youngkin Still Stands With Donald Trump’s Threats to American Democracy

by Democratic Party of Virginia

Richmond, VA — Today marks six months since the deadly January 6th insurrection, and Glenn Youngkin is still “honored” to stand with disgraced former President Donald Trump. 

Youngkin has based his entire campaign on an “election integrity task force” designed to advance Trump’s Big Lie — which he calls the “most important issue” in this campaign. He spent months lying about the 2020 election, and is committed to the hardline Republican agenda of restricting voting rights. To this day, Youngkin refuses to denounce Trump for the violence on January 6th.

Today, six months after Donald Trump’s deadly insurrection and attempt to overturn the 2020 election, DPVA released the following statement from spokesman Manuel Bonder:

“Glenn Youngkin is so completely subservient to Donald Trump that he is incapable of condemning his role spurring on the deadly violence on January 6th. Youngkin’s adherence to Trump’s Big Lie and the voting restrictions that come with it are yet another testament that he is wrong for Virginia.

“While Terry McAuliffe is steadfastly committed to protecting voting rights and opposing the growing threats to American democracy, Glenn Youngkin has sided with Donald Trump’s dangerous conspiracy theories every step of the way.”
