Democrat Terry McAuliffe walked out of a TV interview with WJLA reporter Nick Minock. Video below. McAuliffe is running against Glenn Youngkin for Virginia Governor.
It’s never good when a politician walks out of an interview. This is especially true for a Democrats as they usually get softball questions from the media.
McAuliffe walked out when the conversation turned to critical race theory.
GOUSA has rated both Youngkin and McAuliffe using our opportunity-based Political Credit Rating System. Youngkin received a strong pro-opportunity score of 4.2/5.0. McAuliffe received a poor score of -1.6/5.0 (anti-opportunity).
Our press release noted the basis for the ratings:
“Youngkin received a high score on his support for protecting our 2nd Amendment gun rights, despite deceptive ads from Democrat-linked organizations attacking him on the issue. McAuliffe scored terribly on the subject with his far-Left, anti-2A gun control agenda. Youngkin also scored highly on all five Points of Opportunity – Personal, Economic, Social, Educational, and National Opportunity – while McAuliffe’s score is underwater on all points except for Social Opportunity (Youngkin bests him 60% to 20% on the topic). With such a clear difference between the candidates, the choice for Virginia voters should be clear.”
UPDATE: The two most recent polls now have Youngkin and McAuliffe tied at 46 percent each.
UPDATE2: Now McAuliffe is claiming that he didn’t walk off despite video evidence to the contrary. The local TV news station states otherwise.
