After yesterday’s bombshell report from The American Independent, news outlets throughout Virginia and the nation are reporting on GOP gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin’s admission that he will ban abortion and defund Planned Parenthood if elected governor — and he hopes the voters of Virginia don’t find out.
During a high dollar fundraising event, Youngkin explained his plan to “go on offense” against women’s reproductive rights, but added that “as a campaign topic” he can’t discuss the issue because it is so unpopular with the general electorate. This is just the latest example of Youngkin’s dishonesty and attempts to keep his beliefs secret from voters in Virginia, but behind closed doors, Youngkin is running the kind of extreme far-right campaign that won him Donald Trump’s endorsement.
American Bridge 21st Century launched a 5-figure digital buy to ensure Virginia women can see and hear Glenn Youngkin say in his own words that if elected governor, he is coming for their reproductive rights.
Here is a look at headlines in Virginia and across the country:
