BREAKING: Decision Desk Announces Glenn Youngkin As the Projected Winner of the Virginia Gubernatorial Race


Decision Desk has projected that Republican Glenn Youngkin will win the highly contentious Virginia gubernatorial race and become the state’s next governor.

President Joe Biden had won the state by 10 points in 2020. Though it is considered purple, it has trended towards Democrats for the last decade.

Polls had shown that the race was exceptionally close, to the point where the winner was anyone’s guess. On the eve of the election, McAuliffe and Youngkin were tied in a dead heat.

Winsome Sears has also been projected to win the Virginia Lieutenant Gubernatorial Election.

Some expected that the race may not be called for several days, especially after Fairfax County announced that they would not be meeting their self-imposed 8 p.m. deadline for reporting its early vote ballots. 

The race gained national attention as it was being referred to as the bellwether for the midterm elections.

Youngkin had focused heavily on the education system, championing parent’s rights and promising to end Critical Race Theory teachings on his first day in office.

“We know in our hearts it’s wrong,” Youngkin said during a rally over the weekend. “Dr. Martin Luther King implored us to judge one another based on the content of our character and not the color of our skin. Therefore, on day one, I will ban critical race theory in our schools.”

The new governor is a former private-equity executive who has never held a public office.

McAuliffe had run largely on comparing his rival to President Donald Trump and focused heavily on rallying the blue DC-area suburbs.

“Trump wants to win here so he can announce for president for 2024. That’s the stakes of this election. He’s trying to get himself off the map,” McAuliffe told a crowd of volunteers in Manassas on Sunday. “He wants to win here Tuesday and Wednesday, Donald Trump announces he’s running in 2024. Are we going to allow that to go on?”

“Guess how Glenn Youngkin is finishing his campaign? He is doing an event with Donald Trump here in Virginia,” McAuliffe said during a Monday night rally in Fairfax County. “I am here with you, and they’ve got Trump over there.”

Both candidates had attempted to encourage their supporters to vote early, something that appears to have paid off. According to the commonwealth’s Department of Elections, more than 1.1 million Virginians voted early.

    Well I’ll be damned… Could have sworn that McAuliffe was going to easily win this one by 81 million undisputable votes at 3am and become the Most Popular VA Governor Evah

    New Virginia mottos “Let’s go Brandon” or maybe “Not as Stupid as California”. But “Sic Semper Tyrannis” still does remain appropriate. Their nickname is “Old Dominion” but I don’t think they use the other Dominion. Fairfax county hit a hiccup (figures and sounds familiar),curiously unable to complete their assignment on time. Fairfax County has the most Universities in VA . I had a hunch, so I looked it up.
    A first in 20 years- I might tune into CNN or MSNBC… Just to watch the wailing, renting of clothes and gnashing of teeth, as the fall out continues.
    BTW- Timcast-would have been nice to know you have not been abducted by censors. Hope everything is OK.

    The race was so close, I’m half expecting Stacey Abrams to claim the win.

    Is Tim alive? He haven’t posted a video in a while

      Hey!

      Read a post, I think it was on Youtube, about not being back on until ‘at least Wednesday’. Tim has ‘disappeared’ twice before since I’ve been following him. Once was just exhaustion and couldn’t hardly talk. The other time I believe he was off doing other shows… Rogan maybe?

      That said, it’s pretty bad form to have this many people and not have a fill-in, at least for IRL, if the problem is with Tim personally. If it’s tech related, a much more visible announcement should be posted.

      With the push to become more popular and branch out in to other areas, one thing that will certainly disenfranchise viewers and members here is to just ‘disappear’ for any length of time. I don’t think anyone would have complained if they’d just posted ‘hey, we have some things going on and won’t be back on until XXX and we’ll give more details at that time. Until then, please continue to enjoy the news service and all members get a free month’s membership’ or something like that…

        Totally agree, a simple video message on the youtube page would be much appreciated. Worst case, a mention on the .com page… I dont know how to fill my evenings and hate to go elsewhere! It would be great just to know what the schedule is!

        I agree with you RGSMITH. That’s actually why i’m here. Checking to see if Tim was sick or if he had been hit with a ban of some sort. But nada. To think how many people are in and out of cast castle, and we can’t get a simple op-ed stating what members can expect from the crew due to issue xyz. We are financially invested here, each and every one of us. We are the backers of this endeavor and you’d think we’d get a little more thought about a formal notice. I felt the same at first with Crowder, but his health was more than understandable of a reason to continue supporting through a dry spell. I’ll take the Wednesday statement as a landing point, if I can find no word from the crew then I may have to reconsider my membership. At this stage Luke or Any recurring guest could guest host a show similar to Dave or papa Crowder on LwC. Hopefully we can get more consideration next time around….

          We don’t know what Tim is dealing with, especially with being the WV/MD zip codes. The media would want us to doubt this because they want to divide.

    Maybe a glimmer of hope left for this country

      Don’t despair. They just make a loud noise and own almost everything (media, tech, swamp). The flaming liberals are out of touch with real America (perhaps reality) and have no long term planning skills…it shall be their down fall.
