On Thursday, former Vice President Mike Pence traveled to the commonwealth to campaign for Youngkin. Pence spoke about the importance of children’s education and how it will impact the nation’s future.
The former vice president also reiterated the importance of school choice, educational freedom, and parents’ participation in their children’s education.
This is yet another matter that deeply divides Youngkin and McAuliffe. Earlier on in his campaign, the Democrat declared parents shouldn’t be telling school boards what they believe should be taught to their kids.
This is not a view Youngkin shares. The Republican candidate strongly believes in parents having a right to involve themselves in the learning and education of their own children.
The 11th hour of the Virginia gubernatorial race
This election is turning out to be quite the nail-biter. Many conservatives across the country are rooting for Glenn Youngkin to become Virginia’s next governor.
A win by Youngkin would not only serve as a win for Virginia Republicans, but also Republicans across the country. It could possibly foreshadow what’s to come in the 2022 midterms, which are only a little over one year away.
