How the Texas Abortion Law Could Sink a Republican in Virginia
The Trump-endorsed candidate for governor wants to be talking about anything except abortion, but the topic is at the front of voters’ minds now.
Youngkin has been trying to change the subject since he was caught early in the campaign saying he had to moderate his views to win votes in the northern Virginia suburbs but “can start going on offense” to curb abortion rights after he won.
Now, Texas’ law has brought the race back to abortion and former Governor Terry McAuliffe, the Democratic candidate, is hammering Youngkin on the issue, calling him an extremist who would bring the Texas law to Virginia. Youngkin is tossing the label back, calling McAuliffe “extremist” while falsely claiming he would allow taxpayer-funded abortions until the moment of birth.
