Wow, this is crazy and extreme, even for the Youngkin campaign.
- “In an exclusive video, Republican Virginia gubernatorial nominee Glenn Youngkin said he could eliminate the state’s COVID-19 safety measures for state employees if elected.”
- Youngkin: “I don’t believe that’s a governor’s decision. I think that’s an individual decision.”
- Youngkin: “One thing I can do is, I can remove the mandate from state employees. That’s the one thing, legally, I can do on Day One. I can say state employees are no longer mandated to get the vaccine.”
- “Reached for comment on Monday, a spokesperson for the Youngkin campaign addressed the comments captured in the Undercurrent video, stating, ‘Terry McAuliffe’s racist mandate will disproportionately hurt people of color. McAuliffe wants Black and Hispanic Virginians fired from their jobs unless they obey his order. Glenn Youngkin encourages everyone to get vaccinated and believes everyone should have the right to make health care decisions about their own bodies.'”
