Terry McAuliffe: “I think that’s life threatening…and I think that’s disqualifying as governor”
MCLEAN, VA – Terry for Virginia today released a new digital ad “Disqualifying” calling out Glenn Youngkin for spreading anti-vaccine rhetoric. The ad features numerous clips of Glenn Youngkin questioning the efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccine and encouraging students to fill out exception forms to avoid getting vaccinated for non-medical, non-religious reasons. Youngkin’s own words make it clear that he is not a leader who will get Virginia out of this pandemic. Instead, Youngkin will continue to drive Donald Trump’s right-wing agenda and put Virginia’s families in harm’s way – once again demonstrating he is unfit to be governor.
Just this month, Virginia doctors penned a letter to Glenn Youngkin stating that he was undermining COVID-19 safety measures by peddling anti-vaccine rhetoric. Terry McAuliffe, however, will always follow the science on COVID-19 and keep Virginia families safe and students safely in the classroom. Last week, Terry proposed a new plan to tackle the COVID-19 crisis, keep schools open and safe, and expand access to child care and out-of-school activities. Terry knows that in order to keep Virginia’s economy strong, schools open, and communities safe, every eligible Virginian must be vaccinated against COVID-19.
