After the days-long counting of votes from Saturday’s convention, Youngkin was declared the GOP nominee on Tuesday morning. Democrats have yet to choose their candidate, but the likely choice is former Governor Terry McAuliffe, whom Trump has accused of having “suspicious” deals with communist China.
“He was responsible for many of the problems Virginia currently has,” Trump said in a statement released on Tuesday. “Virginia doesn’t need the Clintons or the Communist Chinese running the state, so say no to Terry McAuliffe, and yes to Patriot Glenn Youngkin!”
Newsweek reached out to Terry McAuliffe’s campaign for comment but did not receive a response in time for publication.
