[Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin] is expected to stump for Arizona governor candidate Kari Lake (R) next month, escalating his midterm campaign efforts ahead of a prospective 2024 presidential bid.
Youngkin is embarking on the Arizona trip as part of a broader nationwide campaign tour to bolster Republican candidates for governor. In recent weeks, he has traveled to Nevada — an early state on the 2024 GOP nominating calendar — and to Michigan, where Republicans are looking to unseat Democratic incumbents. Youngkin is headed to Kansas later this week.
The GOP sends Youngkin out because he appears to be a soccer dad and he doesn’t take a dump in your living room and then set the house on fire. But consider this: Youngkin is willing to appear with Republican candidates who will take a dump in your living room and set the house on fire.
And we remind everyone that when you decided you were too pure to vote for a squishy centrist, dare-I-say-corporate Democrat like Terry McAuliffe in the General Election, that is exactly when Republicans take over a blue state and you see that state goose-step straight into fascism. Virginia is not the same place as it was even two years ago, with book bans, School Boards taken over by MAGA (allegedly to prevent CRT from being taught), and abortion bans, and a threat to ban contraception. (And those are just off the top of my head.)
If you see Youngkin going into your state, you should immediately realize that you are next. It is your canary in the coal mine moment.
