NEW TV Ad: “Wall Street Glenn” Calls Out Youngkin’s Agenda to Put Interests of Wealthy Wall Street Execs Like Himself Over Working Families

The Ad Shows Virginians Who Glenn Youngkin Really is: a Right-Wing Wall Street Executive Who Doesn’t Care About Working Families

MCLEAN, VA – Terry for Virginia today released a new TV ad, “Wall Street Glenn,” illustrating Glenn Youngkin’s dangerously out-of-touch economic agenda that would harm working families and take Virginia’s economy backwards. The ad shows voters who Glenn Youngkin really is: a right-wing Wall Street executive who doesn’t care about Virginia families.

Glenn Youngkin has been clear about his plans if he is elected governor: he opposes raising the minimum wage and has called the American Rescue Plan, which provided billions in funding for Virginia families, small businesses, and schools, “unnecessary.” Youngkin also opposes Medicaid expansion, which has provided over 550,000 Virginians with affordable, lifesaving health care coverage. And, Youngkin’s economic plan would decimate Virginia’s essential services – slashing funding for education and public safety and defunding law enforcement. The Washington Post has said Youngkin’s plan would drive Virginia’s economy “into the ditch.” Youngkin’s economic plan benefits wealthy Wall Street executives like himself at the expense of hardworking Virginians – a recipe for disaster for Virginia’s safety, schools, and economy.

While Youngkin campaigns on running Virginia’s economy into a ditch, Terry has released plans to invest in Virginia’s workforce and rebuild a stronger post-COVID economy, including by raising the minimum wage to $15 by 2024 and securing paid sick days and paid family and medical leave for all. Terry has proposed 18 detailed plans to create good-paying jobs, make health care more affordable, give every child a world-class education, and keep Virginia moving forward.
