Terry for Virginia Statement on Debate Hosted by Liberty University 
Glenn Youngkin Scheduled to Headline “Election Integrity” Rally Hosted by Capitol Riot Insurrectionists at Liberty University Next Week
MCLEAN, VA — On Tuesday, Terry McAuliffe called on Glenn Youngkin to withdraw from an “election integrity” rally being hosted at Liberty University by Capitol riot insurrectionists next week. Terry for Virginia today released the following statement on Terry’s decision to not participate in the gubernatorial forum hosted by Liberty University because of the “Election Integrity” rally that Glenn Youngkin will be headlining in on their campus.

Statement attributable to Terry for Virginia spokesperson Jake Rubenstein:

“Upon learning that Glenn Youngkin will be attending an ‘Election Integrity’ rally hosted at Liberty University by insurrectionists who attended the deadly event at the U.S. Capitol, Terry McAuliffe will be declining Liberty University’s invitation to participate in its upcoming gubernatorial forum. This “Election Integrity” event at Liberty University will be providing Glenn Youngkin with a platform to peddle Donald Trump’s debunked lies and conspiracy theories about the 2020 election. These types of events are unpatriotic, diminish respect for the Commonwealth and our country around the world, and are an insult to the men and women fighting right now to protect our sacred democracy.

“Upon winning the Democratic nomination, Terry quickly accepted invitations to participate in five debates in five different regions of the Commonwealth, and he has been firm in his commitment to discussing his plans to create good paying jobs, address rising health care costs, and ensure every Virginia child receives a world-class education. Glenn Youngkin has already skipped the Virginia Bar Association Debate — the first candidate of either party in 36 years to do so.

“Terry continues to urge Glenn Youngkin to withdraw from and condemn the ‘Election Integrity’ rally being held at Liberty University next week. He hopes Glenn will agree to join him at the AARP Virginia debate hosted by WTVR in Richmond and the Norfolk State University debate that both candidates were invited to well over a month ago.”
