Letter: Youngkin will not define himself to electorate

Editor: After two debates, does anyone have any idea what Glenn Youngkin, the Republican nominee for governor, stands for? With less than a month before the election, all Youngkin has presented is a lot of platitudes and dog whistles (language...

Candidates stake out familiar positions in gubernatorial debate

Locked in a tight race for governor, Republican Glenn Youngkin and former Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) traded barbs over COVID, abortion and the economy during a Sept. 28 forum at Northern Virginia Community College in Alexandria. Youngkin assailed what he...

Letter: Progressives are actually impeding progress in Virginia

Editor: A clear difference once existed between Maryland and Virginia. Virginia had lower taxes, was more business-friendly and was less intrusive. With progressives in control, Virginia has progressively declined. We have the choice to halt or hurry that decline. We can...

Editorial: Will Biden travails propel Youngkin to success?

Editorial: Is window of opportunity closing for Youngkin?

Back nearly a decade ago during the battle-royale over the Columbia Pike streetcar that roiled the political waters in Arlington (and an itty-bitty sliver of Fairfax County), a wise elected official – and streetcar supporter – proffered this explanation...

Gubernatorial candidates have different road maps to future

Virginia gubernatorial candidates Glenn Youngkin (R) and Terry McAuliffe (D) promised rosier futures for Virginians during a Sept. 1 luncheon in Tysons, but offered vastly different roadmaps for how to get there. McAuliffe, 64, spoke first and Youngkin last at...

Editor’s Notebook: Youngkin better up his game, pronto

Let’s face it: The television and social-media advertising of both candidates for Virginia governor leaves much to be desired. But in this case, that’s an advantage for Terry McAuliffe, because he’s the known quantity. For Republican Glenn Youngkin, the question...
