‘Black Virginians for Youngkin’ Member Explains Support for Republican Candidate

A member of the Black Virginians for Glenn Youngkin coalition told Fox News why she believes members of her group are supporting the Republican candidate inĀ Virginia‘s gubernatorial race.

“What he’s conveying most to me is maybe the simple things that we really want,” Linda Gross told Fox News. “It’s to make Virginia the best place to live, the best place to work, the best place to raise a family,” she explained.

“In talking with him, you never feel like there’s a difference between Black and White, privileged and underprivileged. And it might be utopic to think that that’s not something that’s possible,” Gross continued.

A Suffolk University poll released Tuesday shows the race for governor between Youngkin and opposing candidate, Democrat Terry McAuliffe, remains very close. The poll showed the candidates tied at roughly 45% each, with 5% of voters remaining undecided.
