New Terry for Virginia Digital Ad Highlights Glenn Youngkin’s Loyalty to Donald Trump
Youngkin Repeatedly Touts His Endorsement From Donald Trump Despite Trump’s Failed Leadership, Offers No Real Plan to Move Virginia Forward
MCLEAN, VA – Terry for Virginia today released a new digital ad, “Honored
,” highlighting extreme Republican Glenn Youngkin’s unwavering loyalty to his top endorser Donald Trump. Youngkin has repeatedly said he is “honored” to be endorsed by the former president and has said Donald Trump “represents
” so much of why he is running for governor. The ad reminds Virginians that Glenn Youngkin has fully embraced the most extreme elements of the Republican Party, including fawning over Trump and lauding his praise despite his failed leadership as president.
Youngkin has repeatedly tied himself closely to Donald Trump – who once called the coronavirus pandemic, which has taken more than 600,000 American lives and triggered an unprecedented health and economic crisis in this country, a “hoax
,” and said that he wanted to “terminate health care.” Trump even called white supremacists “very fine people.”
Virginians won’t let Glenn Youngkin do to the Commonwealth what Donald Trump did to America. Terry’s plans
to lift up all Virginians, create good paying jobs, invest in our kids, and make health care more affordable reflect the real leadership Virginians are looking for – not the divisive rhetoric of extremists like Glenn Youngkin and Donald Trump.
