Anyone know the deal on Youngkin?

Been seeing a lot of youtube spots and big yard signs in my neighborhood for this Youngkin guy. Is he our version of Bloomberg or another Romney like candidate? I could swallow just about anybody as an alternative to another term by Terry McAuliffe.

Seems like a Romney character. Former Carlyle guy, refused to answer any of the VCDL or NRA candidate questionnaires. I'd obviously vote for him over any Dem candidate, but he's not my first (or third) choice.

Sergio is my first choice, but he's a long shot.

Um, no. He's a conservative.

Glenn is one of the smartest people I have met. He is also one of the most humble and generous.

If he hasn't spoken about certain issues, it will be because it won't benefit him in the upcoming elections. Virginia has an opportunity to run a fresh candidate against McAuliffe and to stem the litany of Democratic victories in Virginia.

So standing up for the Constitution of the United States publicly will hurt him politically in Virginia?

Is that your take. His Best shot is Im not a Democrat?

Not really selling me here.

Sometimes the best thing a candidate can do is keep his mouth shut and let his opponent talk him/herself into an election loss.

Wasn't the "At least I'm not Hillary" messaging effective for Trump in 2016?

We just need to avoid that “lesser of two evils” that continue to move conservatives to the left. I didn’t vote for Youngkin in the convention but will give him the chance to convince me he votes conservatively. fred55

I’m sure Romney is a smart, friendly guy too. But going to church on Sunday doesn’t make you a conservative. He won (money will do that) so I’ll vote for him, but I’m not impressed.

I'm not sure what "conservative" means anymore. Lots of people in that past decade have been hijacking that label and using it on things that twenty years ago would have been considered radical rather than conservative.

Rule of Law used to be a bedrock conservative principle. Apparently not so much anymore.
