As National File previously reported, now-Governor-Elect Youngkin sailed to victory by more than 10 percentage points when the race was called, beating McAuliffe by 55.1% to the loser Democrat’s 44.3% of the vote. Fringe candidate Princess Blanding received 0.7% of the vote. Youngkin largely sailed to victory based on Republican frustration with Critical Race Theory, LGBTQ pornographic materials, and LGBTQ bathroom policies in schools.
Following Governor-Elect Youngkin’s electoral victory, President Donald Trump issued a statement saying “I would like to thank my BASE for coming out in force and voting for Glenn Youngkin. Without you, he would not have been close to winning.”
“The MAGA movement is bigger and stronger than ever before. Glenn will be a great governor. Thank you to the people of the Commonwealth of Virginia and most particularly, to our incredible MAGA voters!” Trump continued.
