With Virginia’s biennial budget signed, and the state’s congressional primaries in the rearview mirror, GOP Gov. Glenn Youngkin is ready to head out on the campaign trail to help out fellow Republicans.
“I will be out helping out our great nominees,” Youngkin said in an interview with Fox News the day after Republicans settled nomination battles in a handful of competitive congressional districts in Virginia which the GOP hopes to flip from blue to red in November’s midterm elections, as part of the party’s push to recapture the House majority.
“I have said from the very beginning that the road to the majority in Washington runs through Virginia,” Youngkin emphasized. “And I look forward to going to work.
Youngkin energized Republicans nationwide last November, as the first-time candidate who hailed from the party’s business wing edged former Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe to become the first GOP candidate in a dozen years to win a gubernatorial election in the one-time swing state that had trended towards the Democrats the past decade.
