Governor Glenn Youngkin is in Las Vegas today sharing the message that won him his race in Virginia last year – “Parents Matter.”
Youngkin was in the Silver State this morning stumping for Republican gubernatorial nominee Joe Lombardo and headlining an “education townhall” for him.
From Virginia to Nevada, Parents Matter! Tune into our education townhall with @JoeLombardoNV: https://t.co/YcjdKDeZ4Y

During his remarks at the event, Youngkin first said “the spirit of doing is being lost, the spirit of delivering on promises made with promises kept is being lost, and we can not let others take that spirit from us.”
Then, Glenn hit on a major campaign point from his governor’s race last year – that liberal governments and politicians inserted themselves into citizen’s homes – via a “14 inch screen” that was pitched as the solution to a quality education – and made themselves a “co-parent” in the lives of school-age children.
Youngkin has been hitting the campaign trail hard for fellow Republicans this year, both in the Commonwealth of Virginia and in other states.
Fox News political reporter Mark Meredith highlighted the fact that Nevada – where Youngkin was today – is a presidential early state in his tweet from the event:
Virginia Gov @GlennYoungkin is in Las Vegas today to campaign for GOP gov candidate Joe Lombardo. Youngkin’s visit to this early 2024 presidential content state will certainly make headlines – NV republicans are trying to make this race focused on Crime and Education. pic.twitter.com/Gvf9NBOvTe

Republican candidates in swing states are looking toward Youngkin’s winning strategy from last fall as a blueprint on how to win races in states that may not naturally favor Republicans – parents’ rights and education seem to be a successful sticking point to captivate voters.
