Washington, D.C.– Following Tuesday’s statewide election in Virginia, People For the American Way President Ben Jealous released the following statement:

“We commend Terry McAuliffe for a hard-fought, principled campaign that centered Virginians, and for his service to the Commonwealth.

“Glenn Youngkin won by pretending to be something he’s not. Democrats nationally should take note: this Republican tactic only works if Democrats in Washington aren’t offering a bold vision for the future and delivering on that promise. They have to start delivering, because the midterm election season is now here.”
