Biden pushes Democrats to give to Virginia candidates as Youngkin's fundraising lead grows

President Joe Biden asked the Democratic National Committee to give $1.2 million to Virginia Democrats.

The request comes as Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin's fundraising in the state has excelled and rumors grow of the governor pursing a future White House bid.

Desperation mode

“They are desperate, with no vision for the Commonwealth; only far-left Virginia Democrats would look to D.C. and Joe Biden and Kamala Harris for help,” Spirit of Virginia PAC head Dave Rexrode said.

“Virginians are with Gov. Youngkin, they support his commonsense agenda that’s providing tax relief, empowering parents and strengthening public safety," he continued.

Flipping the VA Senate

"The request from Biden comes as a Youngkin political action committee raised $5.9 million by the end of June, a new record for a Virginia governor, according to The Washington Post," the Daily Wire noted.

"The November elections could prove pivotal as Republicans currently control the state House of Delegates and Democrats control the state Senate," it added.

A GOP roadmap?

"Virginia is holding pivotal contests for legislative control in November, and Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin hopes to boot Democrats from their last stronghold in Richmond, where Democrats hold a slim majority in the state Senate. If Youngkin is successful, the governor would be able push forward a conservative agenda in a state that has been trending blue over the past two decades," Fox News reported.

"If Republicans succeed, it could boost Youngkin — a rising star in the GOP — toward a potential White House run, perhaps even next year. Just as importantly, the results in Virginia would be seen by the GOP as a bellwether ahead of next year’s presidential election, and the battles for control of the Senate and House," it added.

Youngkin upset Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe in 2021, joined by Republican Lt. Gov. Winsome Sears, the first black woman in the role.

The governor has so far downplayed any thoughts of running for president in 2024, however, focusing his efforts on helping his party win control in Virginia.

If successful, the calls will certainly grow surrounding Youngkin's popularity, setting him up as a top GOP leader for years into the future.
