Glenn Youngkin: GOP has winning path on education
Virginia Gov.-elect Glenn Youngkin told the Republican Governors Association annual meeting in Phoenix on Wednesday that his race shows the party has a winning path on education, AP reports.
Why it matters: Youngkin admitted it's an issue where the GOP has "historically been a bit on our heels."
What they're saying: "The polls kept telling us that education was the seventh or eighth or ninth most important issue," Youngkin said. "Let me tell you: It is the top issue right now. And Republicans across the country can own this topic."
- He said Republicans can win by pushing for "strong schools that teach our children how to excel, not watering down the curriculum, a school where parents have a say in what their children are being taught."
