See below for some photos of Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin campaigning this evening in Maine for unhinged extremist and virulent racist former Gov. Paul LePage (R). Just a reminder that, among his many MANY insane and extremist comments, LePage has said: “the enemy right now is people of color”; the “NAACP should apologize to the white people”;  “people of color are coming to Maine to impregnate white women”; etc. LePage is also a climate science denier (even claiming, laughably, that climate change could be *beneficial*!); has called for repeal of the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, saying he believes it is unconstitutional; called the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) “‘the new Gestapo’ due to their role in enforcing the law”; etc. So yeah…that’s the guy Youngkin is happily campaigning with this evening, giving him a red sweater-vest (I know, I know – groan!); and declaring, mindlessly, “you have a candidate that has been there, has done it and can do it again” (note: in fact, LePage’s was first elected wit just 37.6% of the vote, versus a Dem & a progressive independent opponent who split the anti-LePage votes and let him sneak in. The second time, LePage again won with <50% against a Democrat & a progressive independent).
