“극단주의는 다양한 형태로 나타날 수 있습니다. 국회의사당을 습격하려는 폭도들의 분노에 휩싸일 수 있습니다.. 그것은 미소와 양털 조끼로 올 수 있습니다,” said Biden Tuesday at a rally on behalf of Youngkin’s opponent, former Gov. 테리 맥컬리프.
Youngkin called it “standard rhetoric from a failing campaign,” telling hosts Bill Hemmer and Dana Perino that McAuliffe and Democrats are not focusing on the issues important to Virginians.
“What they are not focused on is what is really happening in Virginia. We have parents trying to stand up for their children on school boards all over Virginia. We saw students walking out of the classroom yesterday trying to ask school boards across Virginia to look out for their safety. This is what this race is about,” Youngkin told “미국의 뉴스 룸.”
ABC News correspondent Jonathan Karl bluntly asked Virginia Democratic gubernatorial candidate 테리 맥컬리프 Wednesday why he needs so much help in a state where a Republican hasn’t won a statewide race in 12 연령.
최근 며칠 동안, McAuliffe는 Joe Biden 대통령을 입대했습니다., 버락 오바마 전 대통령, Vice President Kamala Harris and a slew of other liberal household names in hopes he can get the extra boost needed to win the closely watched race. The Virginia governor’s race is often looked at as a national bellwether. 에 2017, a comfortable win for Democrat Ralph Northam preceded Democrats taking back the House the following year, as did Republican Bob McDonnell’s landslide victory in 2009 before the GOP won the House in 2010.
Polls have shown McAuliffe, who was previously elected governor in 2013, tied with GOP nominee Glenn Youngkin and Biden’s own popularity is on the decline after carrying Virginia comfortably in 2020.
Democrats appear nervous, and Karl took notice.
“We’ve got Stacey Abrams in here, two visits by the president, a visit by the former President Obama, a visit by the first lady, a visit by the vice president,” Karl observed before asking, “Why all the — why do you need all the help?”
McAuliffe responded, “We did this last time. 내말은, we did the same thing in ’13. 내말은, we always bring them in. This is the biggest race in America. Who doesn’t want to be here?”
Youngkin said Terry McAuliffe can’t talk about any of these things because he is on the wrong side of every issue.
Youngkin also claimed McAuliffe backs the FBI being used to try “to silence parents all over Virginia for standing up for their kids.”
