McAuliffe: President Trump doesn’t have the courage to campaign for Youngkin in Virginia
Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe has challenged President Donald Trump to come to Virginia to campaign for GOP candidate Glenn Youngkin.
In an appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press” following his primary victory earlier this week, McAuliffe said Trump doesn’t have the courage to come to the commonwealth after he has defeated him twice in previous campaign cycles.
McAuliffe was referring to the 2016 campaign where Hillary Clinton carried Virginia and then the 2020 election of Joe Biden where McAuliffe served on the president’s staff in Virginia.
Youngkin received the endorsement of former GOP governors George Allen, Bob McDonnell, and Jim Gilmore this week while calling McAuliffe a recycled, 40-year political insider.
