From 2021 VA Dems gubernatorial nominee Terry McAuliffe’s campaign:
Terry for Virginia Launches First Digital Ad of General Election
Democratic Nominee for Governor Releases First Digital Ad of General Election, Touts Record of Job Creation and Delivering Results, Lays Out Clear Contrast with Trump Loyalist Glenn Youngkin
MCLEAN, VA – Terry for Virginia announced today it has launched its first digital ad of the general election. “Running for You” outlines Terry’s record of delivering results for Virginians as governor, including creating 200,000 good paying jobs. The 60-second spot also draws a stark contrast with Glenn Youngkin, who has gone out of his way to embrace Donald Trump and the most extreme elements of his party.
As Virginia’s 72nd Governor, Terry worked with Democrats and reasonable Republicans and delivered real results for Virginians across the Commonwealth – including creating good paying jobs and investing in infrastructure and education.
On the other hand, Glenn Youngkin has already gone all in with the extreme wing of his party. He has repeatedly tied himself to Donald Trump, saying he is “honored” to have his endorsement, and has even bragged that Trump “represents so much of why” he’s running.
Terry McAuliffe: We have had eight great years of success here in Virginia. We created thousands of new jobs. Anchor: Governor Terry McAuliffe was in our area today announcing dozens of new jobs. Anchor: The news today means more jobs and more money. Terry McAuliffe: We put billions of dollars into our infrastructure projects and access to health care. That is our record. Terry McAuliffe: And I was able to get it done in a bipartisan way. I worked with reasonable Republicans to get things done. But let me be clear. Glenn Youngkin is not a reasonable Republican. He is a loyalist to Donald Trump. Anchor: Youngkin won the support of former president Donald Trump. Glenn Youngkin: I’m honored to receive his endorsement. Terry McAuliffe: He has gone as far to say that the reason that he’s actually running is because of Donald Trump. Glenn Youngkin: President Trump represents so much of why I’m running. Terry McAuliffe: Well you know what folks. I’m running because of you. I promise you again, I will build the best economy in the country. I will lift up and build an equitable education system so everybody can prosper.
