Congratulations Gov. Elect Youngkin!
Upon learning of the victory of Glenn Youngkin along with the historic elections of Winsome Sears, the first Black woman to be elected to serve as Virginia’s Lieutenant Governor, and Jason Miyares, the first Hispanic to be elected to serve as attorney general, Brooke L. Rollins offered the following statement:
“Glenn Youngkin’s victory in Virginia is a tremendous moment for the Old Dominion — and a signpost on America’s road back to greatness. The Democrat, leftist, progressive, socialist machine threw everything they had at Youngkin — and they lost.
Remember this, as you go into 2022, 2024, and beyond: the other side left nothing on the table … and they were crushed. They were crushed because the people of Virginia — tired of their arrogance, tired of their disdain, tired of their loathing for everything they have been and meant — went to the polls, and exercised their freedom to say no.
No to their rejection of parental rights.
No to their crude attempts to introduce racism into civic discourse.
No to their belief that incompetent elites deserve to rule.
Nearly two and a half centuries ago, Americans at Lexington fired ‘the shot heard ‘round the world.’ Tonight, Virginians cast the vote heard ‘round the world.’ They voted for Glenn Youngkin, yes — and he deserves every bit of credit he receives in this tremendous victory.
But underlying the vote for a candidate is a vote for freedom. For opportunity. For America.
Tonight is the end of the Virginia gubernatorial race. For America, though — this is the beginning of an America First renewal.”
