Glenn Youngkin

Students protested Virginia Gov. Youngkin reversing policies protecting trans youth.

During his inauguration, he seemed to strike a civil and even bipartisan tone, but a slew of executive orders released by the new governor says otherwise.  

Glenn Youngkin, the GOP hopeful in Virginia's gubernatorial race, has two loud and proud neo-Nazis, Lucas Isturiz and Angie Chang, in his fan club, and he has shown no interest in denouncing them. 

Some question the wisdom of the incident as it feeds into the right’s obsession with “crisis actors” and claims tragic events are staged.  Others directly challenged the use of Charlottesville as a prop. Local news outlet WVIR reported that Democratic Del. Sally Hudson who represents the area called out the stunt.  

On Monday, Glenn Youngkin, the GOP's great white hope in Virginia's gubernatorial race, released a campaign ad featuring a woman who, in 2012 and 2013, embarked on a mission to get iconic, Nobel Prize-winning Black author Toni Morrison's novel Beloved removed from her son's school.

The nearly 3-year-old blackface scandal surrounding Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam has resurfaced as the state's Democratic and Republican gubernatorial nominees court Black voters ahead of next week's election. It's not a good look for Terry McAuliffe or Glenn Youngkin.
