“The Youngkin Effect”
How The Issue Of Parents’ Rights Pushed The Virginia Gubernatorial Race Over The Finish Line And Flipped A Blue State Red
RICHMOND, Va. Nov, 03- GOP Candidate Glenn Youngkin is the first Republican in over a decade to be elected as the Governor of Virginia. Youngkin defeated Democratic power player and former Gov. Terry McAuliffe by 3.2%, or roughly 82,000 votes following the national media attention of Loudoun County school board meetings. As the FBI, under the Biden Administration has labeled parents “Domestic Terrorists”, Americans across the country are taking notice of candidates who will support their rights as parents, and represent their values in office. This demonization of parental involvement will continue to reshape the political landscape, in what Parents’ Rights in Education has now coined “The Youngkin Effect”. Executive Director of Parents’ Rights in Education, Suzanne Gallagher released the following statement;
“As we have just witnessed in Virginia this morning, the issue of Parents’ Rights in Education is the number one issue facing Americans today. Parents’ Rights reach beyond the scope of party, or ideology and unites everyone regardless of skin color, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, or even familial status--as the issue itself brings up two vital concerns: 1) deaf representatives pushing special interests ahead of the needs of our communities, and 2) government’s role in the family unit. From where I’m sitting, it seems clear, candidates who stand for parents’ rights will continue to be elected, over those who stand for increased government authority. Should this continue to be a partisan issue, I think we can expect to see more Democratic held states flip to Republican. Ultimately our goal is to see a balance, and equal support from both parties on this vital issue.”
