Windsor appeared on Wednesday’s The ReidOut on MNBC, which confirmed the video and talked to the American Independent. Windsor pressed him on points like “getting a fetal heartbeat invoice right here like they did in Texas, or defunding Deliberate Parenthood.”
Youngkin instructed Windsor that he thinks she’s “on the precise path” on these points, and that he intends to work on abortion points he says a “majority of Virginians” help, together with to “cease utilizing taxpayer cash for abortions” (which doesn’t occur) and banning “abortions all the way in which up till the final week earlier than delivery” (which can be all however nonexistent in actuality, however is preserved so as to save the lives of girls struggling harmful medical circumstances).
“Hear, I’m staunchly, unabashedly pro-life. And the abortion subject is a matter that the Democrats use to divide us,” he mentioned within the video. “And actually there may be such frequent floor for us to say, wait a minute, the place this loopy governor and the governor earlier than him have taken Virginia is so out of bounds, let’s begin the stroll again.” He tells Windsor and one other unnamed questioner that “you may by no means hear me help Deliberate Parenthood. What you may hear me discuss is definitely taking again the novel abortion insurance policies that Virginians don’t need. And actually they’re the radicals, they’re the radicals. And we have to take it again.”
The Undercurrent had one other video shared with the American Impartial, by which Youngkin defined to his supporters how necessary it was that he get these impartial voters. “We’re going after these center 1 million voters who’re, sadly, gonna determine this—have determined elections for the final 10 to 12 years in Virginia, they usually’ve moved a bit away from us,” Youngkin mentioned on this video. “We will get them. We simply received again an entire bunch of knowledge as we speak, and we’re profitable this group. That is the group that now we have to go get.”
He’ll get them by refusing to do what his shedding predecessor, 2017 Republican nominee Ed Gillespie, did—run racist ads interesting to Donald Trump’s anti-immigrant and racist base. Youngkin has Trump’s endorsement, however he isn’t going to marketing campaign on that. Despite the fact that he’ll quote it. In his endorsement, Trump mentioned “Glenn is pro-Enterprise, pro-Second Modification, pro-Veterans, pro-America, he is aware of tips on how to make Virginia’s economic system rip-roaring, and he has my Full and Complete Endorsement!”
This is the assertion from Youngkin’s marketing campaign to the Washington Put up after the video surfaced: “Glenn Youngkin tells everybody he meets the identical factor: He cannot wait to go on offense for the folks of Virginia by constructing a rip-roaring economic system, creating extra jobs with larger paychecks, restoring excellence in schooling, prioritizing public security, and making Virginia one of the best place in America to dwell, work, and lift a household.” That is from Youngkin spokesman Matt Wolking, and in no way cribbed from Trump’s “rip-roaring” endorsement. “This deceptively recorded audio demonstrates that Glenn Youngkin says the identical factor regardless of who he’s speaking to, not like [Democrat] Terry McAuliffe who knowingly makes false allegations and decides what to say primarily based on no matter ballot is in entrance of him.”
McAuliffe, who served as governor from 2014 to 2018, had his personal response.
