Political outsider, successful business leader, and Republican nominee for governor Glenn Youngkin called on Terry McAuliffe to apologize for and disavow his actions at Democratic National Committee Chairman in 2004, when he told a crowd of Democrats, “we actually won the last presidential election, folks. They stole the last presidential election.”
Youngkin also called on Democrats Hala Ayala, Mark Herring, and Ralph Northam to disavow these comments from McAuliffe.
“If you look up hypocrisy in the dictionary, you’ll see Terry McAuliffe,” said Youngkin. “While McAuliffe is smearing my plan to strengthen the integrity of our elections by doing common sense things like requiring a photo ID to vote, he’s the only person in this race who has said a presidential election was stolen. He should immediately apologize for and disavow those comments he made. Does he still believe the election was stolen? Even today he won’t say, but just two days ago he said that kind of talk hurts our country and hurts our military men and women in uniform. Given their recent, intense focus on this issue, I hope Hala Ayala, Mark Herring, and Ralph Northam will have the courage that McAuliffe doesn’t and make it clear they disagree with what he said.”
