Inside the Beltway: Youngkin wins a precious endorsement
It is important news from a specific region. The Hampton Roads Black Caucus (Hampton Roads, Virginia) has endorsed Republican Glenn Youngkin for the commonwealth’s governornatorial race. Hampton Roads, which is home to over 1.8 million people, is Virginia’s second-most populated region.
GOP candidate Winsome Sears as lieutenant governor, and Jason Miyares as attorney general. The organization is a grassroots organization that supports candidates and legislation that “enhances the Black community.” According to its website, it also nominated Jason Miyares .
” All three of us were honored with the endorsement. It just reflects that Virginians have come together in an extraordinary manner and rejected this left-liberal, progressive agenda that is not only taking control of Virginia, but also taking over America,” Mr. Youngkin said to SiriusXM’s Breitbart News.
” I am humbled and honored by this honor, which just shows that people support a platform that lowers our cost of living. It also cuts taxes so that people can keep more money in their paychecks,” Mr. Youngkin stated.
He predicted Virginians would vote against the progressive agenda of the commonwealth and go to the polls.
Voters, he stated, would simply “not allow it to happen anymore” he predicted.
IGNORANCE ISN’T BLISS
Congress is currently negotiating the passage of a $1 trillion bill for infrastructure and a $3.5 billion federal social spending plan.
Republicans are paying more attention than Democrats to this complicated situation, according to a new Politico Harvard T.H. The Chan School of Public Health conducted a poll to gauge how much public attention was being paid to this issue.
“Even though the congressional debate of these bills has received a great deal of media attention, only 48% of the public reports that they are following the debate,” the poll analysis reported.
” It was noted that Republicans had been closely following the news about the Congress debates than the general public and Democrats.”
And the numbers: 61% of Republicans are closely following the situation, compared to 48% of Democrats and 41% of independents.
The poll also revealed that 51% of the general public, 52% of Democrats, 57% of independents are not following the big debate — along with 38% of Republicans.
The poll of 1,006 U.S. adults was Sept. 14-19 and released Oct. 1.
ONE FOR TONY NOW
Fox News just unveiled their newly renovated Washington D.C. Bureau. It includes a brand-new newsroom, updated TV studios and a “green” room for guests to pay tribute to the late Fox News commentator Charles Krauthammer and another update that may be of interest to Washington Times readers.
A state-of the-art radio studio is also part the renovation. It is dedicated to the late “Fox News Sunday” host Tony Snow , who was the editorial page editor for The Washington Times from 1987 through 1991..
“In 2003, Tony launched ‘Tony Snow Radio Show’ on Fox News Radio ,, kicking off three decades of broadcasting before Tony would go back to public service at The White House,” stated Fox News Media president and editor Jay Wallace in a recent ribbon-cutting ceremony.
Snow was the director of speechwriting and deputy advisor for media affairs to President George H.W. Bush ,, and then as President George W. Bush ”s press secretary. The newsman and on-air star died in 2008 at age 53.
The renovation at Fox News was completed to mark the network’s 25th anniversary, which is Thursday.
This is a useful term that the Republican Party uses now.
“Bidenflation is roaring at a 30-year high. New data from the U.S. Commerce Department shows that the Personal Consumption Expenditures price Index, a key measure for inflation — rose by 4.3% in August compared to a year ago,” reports Tommy Pigott rapid reaction director for the Republican National Committee.
“The core rate — which excludes food and energy — rose 3.6% over the past 12 months. That’s six straight months of rapid inflation, the highest 12-month increase since 1991, and the fastest increase in core inflation in 30 years,” he advises.
THE WEIGHT OF A CAMPAIGN
The constant publicity of a presidential campaign can take its toll on a candidate, according to someone who ran in 2020.
“It was a nightmare running for president. In an excerpt taken from a Politico book, Andrew Yang wrote that we should be concerned about the modern campaign process’s effects on all our leaders.
After spending days on the road appearing on TV and at numerous public events in party-like environments, he said that his smile was tiring. Mr. Yang said that candidates can become “progressively out-of-touch”.
“I could clearly see the signs that politicians can become so out of touch while on the campaign trail. You are surrounded by dozens of people whose lives revolve around yours. Everybody asks what you think. Your appearance is what defines you. Empathy is no longer optional, or even helpful. Leadership is the appearance of leadership. The way we select leaders reduces or neutralizes the most desirable qualities in them. He said that it’s cumulative and the more you stay in it, the more severe the effects will be over time.”
Mr. Yang has published a new book titled “Forward” and will be published by Penguin Random House on Tuesday.
25% of U.S. adults say they have no trust “at all” in the federal government; 45% of Republicans, 28% of independents and 2% of Democrats agree.
