(LifeSiteNews) – After a campaign emphasizing parental rights in education, businessman Glenn Youngkin won Virginia’s governor race last night, becoming the first Republican to win the governorship in more than a decade and signaling that the commonwealth is no longer the blue stronghold it was during the Trump years.
Pro-life and pro-family advocates say Youngkin’s defeat of former Gov. Terry McAuliffe, who was governor from 2014 to 2018, show a path for future Republican victories. Leaning into the culture wars over education, Youngkin managed to keep support of the pro-Trump Republican base in Virginia while also picking off moderate Democrats and independents.
Liberal Fairfax and Loudoun Counties went 10 and 14 points more Republican than in the 2020 election, respectively.
The sea change is evident just in comparison to Virginia’s last election in 2019 when Democrats gained two state Senate seats and six House seats, thus taking both branches of the state legislature while also controlling the governorship.
