Glenn Youngkin Looks to Bring His Winning Strategy to More States to Help Elect Republican Governors
Townhall, Aug 23, 2022

One stop includes Georgia, where Youngkin will campaign for Gov. Brian Kemp, the incumbent Republican facing Democrat Stacey Abrams, in a rematch of the state's 2018 gubernatorial race.

Youngkin will also make campaign stops in states where Republican nominees are looking to defeat Democratic incumbents, such as New Mexico, where Mark Ronchetti is facing Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, and Kansas, where Derek Schmidt is facing Gov. Laura Kelly. Another stop includes Oregon, where Republican nominee Christine Drazan is facing Democratic nominee Tina Kotek.

It was also recently announced that Youngkin will travel to Michigan to campaign for Republican nominee Tudor Dixon, who is facing Gretchen Whitmer, the state's Democratic governor.

[...]

Youngkin has previously said, "I am so excited to be supporting Republican gubernatorial candidates across the country. Michigan is going to be a great stop. We're also supporting candidates across Virginia. We are going to take back congressional seats in Virginia…my focus is on 2022."

Indeed, his other campaign priorities have been on getting Republicans elected at the congressional level. Youngkin continued to note that his "top priority is to make Virginia the best state to live work and raise a family. 2024 is a long way off. Right now, I am focused on delivering on promises made last year that have been kept. We've got a giant agenda for the rest of this year and into next year. And 2024 will happen when 2024 gets here."

Both reports acknowledge Youngkin's impressive win last November in Virginia, which was once considered a purple or even blue state. Despite the race once being considered to favor Youngkin's Democratic opponent, former Gov. Terry McAuliffe, who had also been leading in the polls for a large portion of the race, Youngkin's momentum grew in the final months. He ultimately won 50.6 of the vote compared to McAuliffe's 48.76 percent. Youngkin also outperformed how Republicans had done in previous cycles, including in more heavily Democratic areas.

In Kansas, perhaps his time will be well-spent.

But in New Mexico and Oregon?
Time wasted.

Youngkin better get Virginia under control before he looses it... Things are better but there are many miles to go before he can take a breath.
Don't pull a G. W. Bushy on us... start one fight then move to another and lose the first.
