Pro-life candidate wins Virginia governorship

Glenn Youngkin, a businessman making his first foray into electoral politics, is the first Republican to be elected governor in Virginia in over a decade. At the time the race was called, Youngkin was leading Democrat Terry McAuliffe by 11 points and nearly 200,000 votes. McAuliffe, who described himself as a “brick wall” in favor of abortion rights, made abortion a central part of his campaign.
