Political outsider, successful business leader, and Republican nominee for governor Glenn Youngkin announced that he received the endorsement of more than 20 Commonwealth’s Attorneys.

“I am honored to have the support of over 20 Commonwealth’s Attorneys and look forward to working closely with them and the rest of Virginia’s law enforcement community to make Virginia’s neighborhoods among the safest in the nation, not the most dangerous,” said Glenn Youngkin. “Terry McAuliffe has turned his back on our communities and law enforcement, embracing the most radical elements of his party that want to defund the police, free violent criminals, abolish ICE, and close prisons.”

These endorsements come just days after it was revealed that Terry McAuliffe endorsed rogue and reckless Fairfax County Commonwealth’s Attorney Steve Descano, who was exposed for releasing a convicted sex predator early from prison.

Under Terry McAuliffe’s watch the murder rate increased 43%, now Virginia faces a 20-year high in the murder rate and four of America’s deadliest cities are here in the Commonwealth.

While McAuliffe has embraced a criminal first, victim last agenda – Glenn Youngkin has fought for safe communities, our law enforcement personnel, and reducing crime.

That’s why Youngkin has been endorsed by the Virginia Fraternal Order of Police, Virginia Law Enforcement Sheriff’s Association, Virginia Police Benevolent Association, the Virginia Beach Police Benevolent Association, 50 sheriffs from all over the Commonwealth, and now over 20 Commonwealth’s Attorneys from all across Virginia.

The endorsement comes after Youngkin released his Day One Game Plan, which addresses how he will keep our communities safe with several actions including:

Fully funding law enforcement and protecting qualified immunity for our Law Enforcement Heroes
Firing the Parole Board and keeping violent criminals off our streets
Launching #UnityInTheCommunity programs Operation Ceasefire and Project Exile
Fixing our broken mental health system.
