Former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D), running for his second non-consecutive term as Virginia’s most senior elected official, has become the subject of criticism after remarks from a Tuesday night debate.
During the debate, McAuliffe claimed he thought parents should have little to no input on what they’re children are being taught in schools.
As Virginia’s gubernatorial candidates approach their first possible debate, questions of a possible conflict of interest are muddying the waters.
The Virginia Bar Association (VBA) has invited both former Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe, the Democrat candidate for his old job, and Glenn Youngkin, the Republican candidate for governor, to debate. The VBA customarily hosts a debate between the state’s gubernatorial candidates.
