That’s a challenge that Mr. McAuliffe takes seriously. After he clinched an easy victory in the Democratic primary Tuesday night, Mr. McAuliffe — who is seeking to replace Gov. In contrast to the last two Virginia governor’s races, the G.O.P.’s conservative and more establishment-aligned factions are united behind Mr. Youngkin. “I don’t think he’s coming this year,” Mr. Youngkin said in response to a question of whether he wanted Mr. Trump to campaign with him. “I don’t think his schedule is — I think he has his schedule and is set to go to other places,” Mr. Youngkin tried again.

Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe (D-VA) greets supporters after speaking during an election night event after winning the Democratic primary for governor on June 8, 2021 in McLean, Virginia. New York businessman and Democratic donor Dennis Mehiel will host McAuliffe at an event at his home, according to an invitation obtained by CNBC. He referred a request for further comment to the McAuliffe campaign, which did not respond to an email seeking comment. The New York fundraiser comes as the Virginia gubernatorial race kicks into an expensive phase. Medium Buying says the Youngkin campaign has spent just over $1 million on ads since he won the Republican nomination.

Terry McAuliffe overwhelmingly won the Democratic nomination to return to his old job Tuesday, setting up a general election in November with Republican Glenn Youngkin. Jennifer Carroll Foy. But his victory was also a blow to some Democratic activists' hopes of electing McClellan or Carroll Foy as the country's first Black female governor. Carroll Foy ultimately won an endorsement from one of the groups, the Higher Heights for America PAC. Any concerns that McAuliffe stood in the way of history — he launched his bid after Carroll Foy and McClellan had been running for months — did not register enough to derail his campaign.

Here's what we're talking about:One thing to watch for: President Biden and first lady Jill Biden will depart for their first overseas trip of Biden's presidency at 8:10 a.m. Eastern. THE HIGHWAY OPTION: Democrats are creeping closer to going it alone on at least part of President Biden's massive infrastructure plan. Biden's weeks-long talks with a group led by Republican Sen. Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia collapsed on Tuesday. GOP senators involved in the group told Insider that they supported some ideas the White House previously rejected. Cassidy also ruled out any funding for caregiving in the proposal like Biden proposed, arguing that it goes beyond the scope of infrastructure.

McAuliffe Favored in Virginia Democratic Primary Election

Mr. McAuliffe leads four Democratic rivals: Jennifer Carroll Foy, a public defender and former state lawmaker; Lt. Gov. Mr. McAuliffe has coalesced support of leading Democrats in Richmond, where the party hopes to retain complete control of government after a cache of victories since 2017. Mr. McAuliffe, who left office in January 2018 because the state prohibits consecutive gubernatorial terms, ran by leaning into his prior tenure, and he proposed higher funding for education and police. Democrats are favored in the November matchup between Mr. Youngkin, the former co-chief executive of the Carlyle Group Inc., and the winner of Tuesday’s contest. And Mr. McAuliffe, if pronounced the winner, faces an early test in keeping all elements of his party energized.

Former Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe won his party’s nomination for a second stint as governor, defeating a crop of rivals who tried to cast him as an uninspiring standard-bearer and setting up a November matchup with Republican Glenn Youngkin that should be this year’s most-watched election. Mr. McAuliffe, speaking to a packed hotel ballroom with largely maskless supporters, cast his prior stint in office and the years of Gov. Ralph Northam’s that followed as key to spurring Democratic electoral gains in Virginia. Mr. McAuliffe won a decisive majority of the votes cast, beating four Democratic rivals: Jennifer Carroll Foy, a public defender and former state lawmaker; Lt. Gov.

Former Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe speaks at the North America's Building Trades Unions (NABTU) 2019 legislative conference in Washington, U.S., April 10, 2019. No Republican has won statewide office in the Southern state since 2009, and Democrats have controlled both chambers of the legislature since 2019. Trump lost Virginia in 2020 by 10 percentage points, double his margin of defeat in 2016. hereThe other Democratic candidates are state Senator Jennifer McClellan, former state Representative Jennifer Carroll Foy, Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax and state Representative Lee Carter. Under Virginia law, Democratic Governor Ralph Northam, who has endorsed McAuliffe, cannot run for a second consecutive term.

Former Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe speaks at the North America's Building Trades Unions (NABTU) 2019 legislative conference in Washington, U.S., April 10, 2019. If McAuliffe wins that contest, he would become Virginia’s second two-term governor since the U.S. Civil War. McAuliffe was backed by much of the state’s Democratic establishment, including some three dozen state legislators and Democratic Governor Ralph Northam. But McAuliffe’s victory suggests the state’s Democrats still favor an establishment politician over a more progressive newcomer. They had both been seeking to become the first woman and the first Black woman elected Virginia governor.

Former Democratic Gov. Virginia voters are casting their ballots for June 8th's Democratic primaries for governor, lieutenant governor, and attorney general. Governors can only serve one term at a time under the Virginia constitution, meaning current Democratic Gov. The poll, conducted from May 24 to June 1, surveyed 637 likely Democratic primary voters with a margin of error of ±3.9 points. The outcome of the open Democratic primary for lieutenant governor is far less certain.

The results also marked a moment of vindication for Mr. Northam, underscoring his political recovery in a party whose leaders, including Mr. McAuliffe, once called for his resignation. Three of Mr. McAuliffe’s primary rivals are Black: Ms. Carroll Foy, Jennifer McClellan, a state senator, and Lt. Gov. And with all four of the other candidates remaining in the race to the end, none of them were able to coalesce what opposition there was to Mr. McAuliffe. But this primary more closely approximated last year’s presidential primary, when a coalition of moderate whites and Black Democrats rallied to the moderate candidate they knew. “Terry is a little more experienced,” said John Eley III, a McAuliffe supporter and member of the Newport News School Board.

DUMFRIES, Va.—Glenn Youngkin, the private-equity boss-turned-Republican nominee for Virginia governor, is so new to politics that many Virginia GOP activists had never heard of him. “He was a virtual unknown,” said Rich Anderson, a longtime GOP activist in Virginia and head of the state Republican Party. Mr. Youngkin, who stepped down last year as co-chief executive of the Carlyle Group Inc., is betting that running as an outsider will propel him to a feat no Virginia Republican has accomplished since 2009: winning statewide. To beat likely Democratic nominee Terry McAuliffe, Mr. Youngkin will almost certainly have to rise above the GOP infighting that has plagued Republicans in Washington this year by accepting support from all elements of his party. Roughly 100 Republicans from all corners of the party gathered recently in this small town in Prince William County outside Washington, D.C., to hear from Mr. Youngkin.

Starting this month, Donald Trump will also be back in public circulation, headlining a series of grievance-filled summer MAGA rallies. Trump's return to the political stage gives Democrats a rare opportunity to set aside the disagreements that come from governing just as Biden's honeymoon period is ending. By now, most Americans know to expect plenty of disinformation and far-right red meat from Trump rallies. The disagreements within the Democratic Party look marginal when compared to a former president's openly fanning his supporters' most extreme conspiracy theories. For GOP candidates now dependent on Trump's money-printing outrage machine, Trump's rallies could serve as forced baptisms into the MAGA movement.

An NBC News poll last month found that Mr. Trump’s favorability rating was down to 32 percent among all voters and 14 percent among independents. As Ms. Cheney discovered, Republican leaders will continue to bow to Mr. Trump as long as they’re worried that their rank-and-file voters will punish them for disloyalty. “There’s not a lot of good options,” said Brendan Buck, a former House Republican leadership aide. Terry McAuliffe, the likely Democratic nominee, mentioned Mr. Trump’s name three times in the first three sentences. “They have a strong likelihood of taking the House,” Paul Begala, a Democratic strategist, said of Republicans.

Virginia Republican leaders nominated political newcomer Glenn Youngkin for governor, betting on the former private-equity executive, who embraced elements of former President Donald Trump’s policy agenda, to turn around the party’s fortunes in a state that has moved sharply toward the Democrats. Instead of holding an open primary, the GOP in Virginia picked its nominee at a convention via a ranked-choice voting system, which allowed delegates to list candidates by preference. The Republican Party of Virginia announced late Monday that Mr. Youngkin had prevailed. “Virginians have made it clear that they are ready for a political outsider with proven business experience to bring real change in Richmond,” Mr. Youngkin said, adding that he had spoken to all of his GOP challengers. “Every Republican should be proud that our party inspired such a spirited, diverse and talented field of candidates.”

Ms. Chase had said that if he became the nominee, she would run as an independent. There is no indication she intends to do that with Mr. Youngkin heading the party’s ticket, which will also include nominees for lieutenant governor and attorney general. insiders heaved a sigh of relief that the nomination for governor was not won by Ms. Chase, believing that her general-election candidacy would have been likely to go down in flames given how deeply unpopular Mr. Trump is in Virginia.

Since the late 1970s, only once have Virginians elected a governor of the same party as the White House occupant: Democrat Terry McAuliffe. He won the governor’s mansion in 2013, a year after former President Barack Obama, who carried Virginia, cruised to re-election. Instead of holding an open primary, Virginia Republicans are picking their nominee at a convention via a ranked-choice voting system, with delegates gathering to make their choices at dozens of locations around the state. Former Virginia GOP officials—including those from the state’s northern parts, where proximity to Washington, D.C., and growth have helped accelerate widespread Democratic victories—say Republicans risk a Democratic win if they nominate a candidate too closely aligned with Mr. Trump. He lost Virginia by 10 percentage points in 2020 after falling roughly 5 points short in 2016.
