Well, well, well … suburban women finally came through for the GOP tonight! The title refers to a group of 27,000 ‘soccer moms’ who campaigned throughout Virginia to help elect Glenn Youngkin. In his acceptance speech just now, he hit all the right buttons- 20 new charter schools, parental involvement in school curricula, investment in law enforcement, etc. Best of all, he is a highly successful businessman and knows how to balance a budget. Also, good news that conservative Republican Winsome Sears is Virginia’s new lt. governor.
My only regret is that this election did not occur closer to 2024. Democrats have plenty of time to backpedal on many of their radical stances, but hopefully the damage has already been done and voters will remember them in three years. In any case, we’ll at least have Joe Biden around to remind us if the country is still standing by then!
