Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers (R) issued a warning Thursday evening ahead of the Virginia governor’s race between Republican Glenn Youngkin and Democrat Terry McAuliffe, with just days to go before Election Day.
A recent Fox News survey showed Youngkin leading McAuliffe by eight percentage points (53-45) among likely voters, with just 2 percent supporting other candidates or undecided. However, they now remain reportedly deadlocked as they enter the final weekend before Election Day, according to a Washington Post-Schar School poll released Friday.
New York Post reported:
McAuliffe has stumbled repeatedly on the topic of education — long considered a pet Democratic issue — as parents raise concerns about the implementation of critical race theory and other controversial topics in K-12 curricula.
During a Sept. 28 debate, McAuliffe flatly stated, “I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach” when asked to respond to complaints about sexually explicit books.
Youngkin jumped on the issue, accusing McAuliffe in the same debate of trying to “suppress and silence” parents so schools could push a woke “radical political agenda” in classrooms. The Republican has also vowed to “ban critical race theory as soon as he is elected,” while McAuliffe has attempted to claim the topic is non-existent in Virginia schools. Continued Below
Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers took to Twitter on Thursday, warning, “Republicans in Virginia better not let the Dems go into the night on election night for this governor’s race ‘counting’ votes at 3 am like they did to Trump”.
“I hear that Fairfax County, Virginia will have a water main break on or about 11:30 pm on Tuesday and unfortunately all of poll watchers and observers will have to go home. And further, the water main will be fixed around 11:45 pm so they can bring out the suitcases,” she said, referencing an alleged broken water pipe at the ballot processing site at State Farm arena that reportedly caused a delay in Fulton County’s ability to process thousands of absentee-by-mail votes on the night of November 3, 2020.
“Rumors that Fairfax County, Virginia has run out of Papa Johns boxes so they can board up those windows on Tuesday during the vote counting,” Senator Rogers added, jokingly, referring to a ballot counting center in Detroit, Michigan, who had blocked off its windows from poll watchers.

New reports indicate voters may not know the results on Election Day due to the slim margin separating the two candidates, Just The News reported on Thursday.
Meanwhile, Virginia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe’s campaign is spending nearly $60,000 to hire former Clinton counsel Marc Elias, a Democrat attorney known for election-related legal challenges.
Fox News sent McAuliffe’s campaign a request for comment over their spending nearly $60,000 to hire Elias, however, the McAuliffe campaign scrambled to “kill” the story, according to emails mistakenly sent to Fox News.
Elias is a critical figure in the ongoing Durham investigation and has been accused of lying to the media to hide the role of the Clinton campaign in funding the Steele dossier. His former law partner Michael Sussmann at Perkins Coie was recently indicted by Durham. Elias has also led efforts to challenge Democratic losses, even as he denounces Republicans for such election challenges. Elias has been sanctioned in past litigation, Jonathan Turley reported.
Like Sussmann, Elias has left Perkins Coie. He ironically created a law firm specializing in campaign ethics. McAuliffe may be preparing to challenge any win by Republican Glenn Youngkin. He has given $53,680 to the Elias Law Group. McAuliffe does not appear disturbed by Elias’ highly controversial career or his possible exposure in the Durham investigation, Turley wrote.

Jonathan Turley’s assessment:
…There are a host of election lawyers but McAuliffe selected an attorney accused of lying to the media, advancing rejected conspiracy theories, and currently involved in a major federal investigation that has already led to the indictment of his former partner.
