Coverage Roundup: Glenn Youngkin Continues To Fuel Trump’s Big Lie

Today caps off another bad week for Republican Virginia gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin, who once again was caught spreading Donald Trump’s “Big Lie.” After the last debate — during which Youngkin said he would support Trump’s candidacy in 2024 — a new video captured the Republican calling for audits of election machines in Virginia. 

For months, Youngkin has pandered to the former president calling “election integrity” the most important issue of his campaign.

Here’s what Virginians are reading about Youngkin’s continued role in fueling election conspiracy theories:
