OpEd: Long Island’s Elections Are The True Bellwether


The Washington, D.C. pundit class is up in arms about Tuesday’s elections in Virginia, where former Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) is fighting for his old job against newcomer Glen Younkin (R).

The commonwealth has not elected a Democratic governor since 2009, and McAuliffe – a close ally of President Joe Biden – is not doing as well in the polls as he had hoped. He is running even with Youngkin, who has made education and vaccines central focuses of his campaign, staying clear of former president Donald Trump since he won the nomination.
