FRC Action Endorses Glenn Youngkin for Virginia Governor

Washington, D.C. -- FRC Action, the legislative affiliate of Family Research Council, is endorsing Glenn Youngkin for Virginia Governor. Earlier today, Glenn spoke at FRC Action’s Pray Vote Stand Summit on education, protecting students, and parental rights. FRC Action President Tony Perkins issued the following statement:

“This fall, Virginia voters are faced with a stark contrast between the two candidates vying for Governor. As a former Governor of Virginia, Terry McAuliffe has assembled a lengthy track record of extreme, far-left positions. McAuliffe has been endorsed by Gov. Ralph Northam, who made comments in support of infanticide, and McAuliffe supported legislation allowing abortion at the moment a baby is born. When he was recently asked to name an abortion restriction he supports, McAuliffe said he supports any kind of abortion at any stage of a baby’s development. Terry McAuliffe’s agenda is one of the greatest threats to religious freedom that Virginia has ever seen. McAuliffe’s positions would dramatically undermine religious freedom and could result in small business owners and faith-based organizations being punished for living out deeply-held religious beliefs. And when it comes to educational choice, McAuliffe supports extreme measures stripping parents of their right to protect their children. He recently stated during a public debate, “I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach.” Democrats are now calling concerned parents a “threat” in an attempt to intimidate and silence families after the National School Board Association claimed parents are potential “domestic terrorists.” Glenn on the other hand will empower parents to have an even greater say in their child’s education. That’s why we’re urging Virginians to vote for Glenn Youngkin for Governor. Glenn’s faith is a driving force in what he does and he understands the values that are important to Virginians. He will stand up to the extreme policies of the Left.”
