Entering the race as an underdog with no political experience, rising GOP star Glenn Youngkin has defeated repulsive Democrat Terry McAuliffe in Virginia’s gubernatorial election, dealing a blow to Democrat President Empty Shelves Joe Biden as the latter just came home from his Europe trip.
A seemingly shattered and speechless Sleepy Joe came back to the White House in the early hours on Wednesday after a G-20 and COP26 climate conference trip to Europe just in time to be met with the news of the Virginia defeat.
With 99% of the votes counted, Youngkin came on top in Tuesday’s vote by app. 51% to 49% for McAuliffe, a pro-wokeist, pro-critical race theory lackluster Democratic Party apparatchik, who was governor of Virginia from 2014 until 2018 and can hardly boast with any successes from back then.
54-year-old Youngkin’s victory marks the first time since 2009 a Republican has become the Governor of the state of Virginia.
Youngkin is ahead by about 67,000 votes: 1.677 million vs. 1.610 million for McAuliffe.
To top it all off, Tuesday’s election day might end up being a big “small disaster” for the Democrats as in New Jersey, which also voted for governor, Republican candidate Jack Ciattarelli has gained a small lead over Democrat incumbent Phil Murphy after 88% of the cast votes have been counted.
Neither of them has rushed to declare victory as the results have been really close from the very beginning of the counting.
The elections in Virginia and New Jersey are deemed as a referendum of sorts on the disastrous presidency of Sleepy, Empty Shelves Joe, whose ratings have been taking a nosedive since July, and appear to be abysmal barely nine months since he occupied the White House, and about a year before the 2022 midterms.
Back in 2020, according to the official tallies, which many Republicans don’t believe, Biden won by 16 points in New Jersey and by 10 points in Virginia.
Sleepy Joe seemed particularly “sleepy” and wiped out when he landed at Andrews Air Force Base overnight, The Daily Mail reported.
Just hours earlier, while he was still the UK, he had predicted McAuliffe’s victory in Virginia.
Not only Biden but also his former boss Barack Obama came down to Virginia to campaign in favor of McAullife, while Youngkin himself was heavily endorsed by President Donald Trump.
“Virginia, we won this thing,” an overjoyed Youngkin shouted before the crowd at his campaign camp.
He added that, “Our kids can’t wait,” and that “we’re going to work” “on day one” – a likely reference to his vow to ban the teaching of the vicious anti-white racist Critical Race Theory on his first day in office.
Youngkin also promised to cut taxes, reduce living expenses, and save Virginia’s households $1,500 per year, while also making “our communities safe.”
Top Republican figures have rushed to congratulate Youngkin, with former South Carolina Governor and former US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, calling him “a rockstar”, while ex-Vice President Mike Pence declared that “the conservative comeback” is here.
Besides Youngkin’s victory, Virginia also elected a Republican as lieutenant governor: former US Marine Winsome Sears, an outspoken conservative who has become the first black woman to hold statewide office in Virginia’s history.
Sears is devastatingly critical of the ideological monstrosities of the left, enraging the Democrats who claim every American female and person of color as their voter by default.
