Before I start, here’s the caveat. With Fairfax County in the middle of their vote-manufacturing plan, it’s possible that they could reverse the will of the people in Virginia just as they did during the 2020 election. But enough news outlets have called Virginia that we’re confident Republicans swept the major elections in the state even if Democrats will try to steal it all overnight.
Virginians showed up in force to give Republicans the win in all three statewide races. Glenn Youngkin will be the next Governor, Winsome Sears will be the next Lt. Governor, and Jason Miyares will be the next Attorney General. Sears’ victory is historic as she becomes the first Black woman to win a statewide election in Virginia as well as the first female Lt. Governor in the state.
Republicans have a full sweep in Virginia – Governor, Lt. Governor, and Attorney General

Meanwhile, by 9pm Eastern, none of mainstream media has called the race. It’s reminiscent of the 2020 election when close races that leaned towards Joe Biden were called early while close races for Donald Trump weren’t called until much later, giving the cheaters enough time to steal the election without anyone in mainstream media being too embarrassed.
This time, it seems like Terry McAuliffe was simply too McAwful for even the cheaters to fix it.

Much of the credit is being given to Youngkin’s stance on education, or to be more accurate, McAuliffe’s unpopular stance. In the last days ahead of the election, McAuliffe’s team tried to distance him from Critical Race Theory and school board control over education, but the damage was done by his early bearhug embrace of both.

On top of the education issues, McAuliffe was also thrown into scandal after scandal, including the ridiculous attempt by the Lincoln Project to paint Youngkin as a racist.
This appears to be a crystal clear referendum against both statewide and national Democrats. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris traveled to Virginia to campaign for McAuliffe to no avail. And even as mainstream media tried their best to prop him up, the radical agenda of the left continued to shine through.
Is this a bellwether for the 2022 midterm elections? Is Virginia starting the “red wave” that should be sweeping across the nation right now? We will see. In the meantime, Republicans should enjoy this victory.
