Republican nominee for governor Glenn Youngkin announced an endorsement from Hampton Roads Business Political Action Committee.
“I am honored to receive the endorsement of the Hampton Roads Business Political Action Committee. They recognize my Day One Game Plan will protect Virginia workers while also bringing jobs and economic prosperity to Hampton Roads and Virginia,” said Youngkin. “Virginians deserve more than Terry McAuliffe’s recycled plans and failed economic track record. As the pro-business candidate, I will get Virginians back to work, reinvigorate small businesses, and bring economic growth back to the Commonwealth.”
“The Chamber is unapologetically pro-business,” said Bryan Stephens, President and CEO of the Hampton Roads Chamber. “One of the key elements to our region’s economic success is Virginia’s Right to Work Law. These candidates have pledged to uphold the Right to Work Law and for that reason we have chosen to endorse them this year.”
While Youngkin has consistently vowed to protect Virginia workers, Terry McAuliffe has bragged about his opposition to Right-to-Work and said he would sign a bill repealing Right-to-Work protections in the Commonwealth.
In his Day One Game Plan, Youngkin has pledged to protect Virginia’s Right-to-Work law, which gives workers the choice of whether or not to join a union.
In addition to protecting Virginians from forced unionization in his Day One Game Plan, Youngkin has also proposed:
Cutting job killing regulations by 25%;
Launching #JumpstartJobs to develop talent, train workers, attract investment, and make Virginia the easiest state to start a business;
Reinvigorating small business by enacting a small business tax holiday and ending the tax on Rebuild VA and PPP loans; and
Keeping Virginia open and protecting lives and livelihoods.
