A campaign staffer for Virginia Democrat gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe reportedly snapped at a Fox News reporter during a campaign stop this week when the reporter tried to ask McAuliffe a question.
The incident reportedly happened at an event at the Virginia Democrat Party regional headquarters in Harrisonburg as McAuliffe spoke to supporters.
“The campaign bus stop was the latest in events featuring a dwindling audience for the former governor of the Old Dominion as he slides in the polls,” Fox News reported. “Only a handful of supporters in Harrisonburg showed up to greet McAuliffe’s campaign bus Thursday afternoon after the former governor’s flailing campaign cashed in political capital to get big-name Democrats out to stump for McAuliffe, including President Biden, Vice President Harris and failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams.”
Fox News said that after the event, one of its reporters tried to ask McAuliffe a question was told to “f— off” by one of McAuliffe’s staffers.
A Fox News poll showed this week that Youngkin has taken a lead over McAuliffe as education has seemingly become the key issue in the race.
Earlier this week, Youngkin took a shot at Democrat President Joe Biden when asked if he was worried about Biden campaigning for McAuliffe.
“I’m not afraid, I’ll be honest,” Youngkin responded. “You know, down the stretch here, Virginians are so focused on what their governor is going to do for them when I’m governor, and we’re going to get our taxes down and we’re going to get our job machine cranked back up, make our neighborhoods safe. And we are in fact going to make sure that our schools are teaching our children how to think and not what to think.”
“You can’t help but look at President Biden and recognize what a failed presidency looks like,” Youngkin added. “I mean, you look at Afghanistan, you look at the border, you look at our economy, you look at the fact that everything he’s doing seems to be making America worse, and I’m going to go to work and make Virginia better.”
