Lincoln Project launches ad mocking Virginia Republican candidate for forgetting COVID conspiracy talking points

Glenn Youngkin fumbled in the Virginia gubernatorial debate when asked about vaccinations for children. Youngkin has attempted to have it both ways on the issue of vaccines so as to not alienate Republican voters while also appealing to independent voters.

Youngkin was asked about vaccine mandates, something that schools have in Virginia for viruses like measles, mumps, rubella, chickenpox, diphtheria and others. His opposition to the COVID-19 vaccine mandate led the moderator to ask if that means he doesn't support the other vaccine mandates. Youngkin fumbled with his answer.

"I think, I think that the — the — that the, uh, uh," Youngkin says on the video by the Lincoln Project.

"Come on, Glenn. Just remember what they told you to say," the caption reads.

He finally concluded that people should do their own research, despite over 1 billion people getting the vaccine.

"I've gotten the vaccine; my family has gotten the vaccine. It's the best way for people to keep themselves safe. And I in fact have asked everyone in Virginia to please get the vaccine. But I don't think we should mandate it," Youngkin said.
