Virginia, get yourself a Governor that doesn’t ban books. I loved Beloved. It’s a brilliant, compassionate book that made me a fuller person when I read it as a pretty young person. It’s mindboggling a candidate is running to ban it.
This actually seems like a good response from McAuliffe to Youngkin on his ridiculous anti-Toni Morrison ad

After 23 students were arrested in 3 days at a Louisiana high school over fights, a group of fathers created Dads on Duty: 40 dads who take shifts at the school. There hasn't been a single incident at the school since the dads showed up cbsnews.com/news/dads-louisi…

Thank you @hughhewitt for speaking out on behalf of the need to get this country vaccinated.
When your child becomes eligible, study up. I know my grandchildren are getting vaccinated as soon as these vaccines are available, and FMH didn't raise any dummies. It is such a smart choice for kids with no underlying conditions that would otherwise prevent them from taking it.

Hey all Wake up!
Trump calling in to Bannon rally near Richmond, saying he wants to be with fans "live" eventually, and praising Youngkin. "I hope Glenn gets in there, and he'll straighten out Virginia. He'll lower taxes and do all the things we want a governor to do."
