Glenn Youngkin has been announced as the GOP nomination for Governor of Virginia.

On Monday, the former CEO of a global investment firm, defeated six other Republicans at Virginia’s GOP Gubernatorial Convention. Youngkin beat out entrepreneur Pete Snyder, state Sen. Amanda Chase, former Speaker of Virginia’s House of Delegates Kirk Cox, former think tank leader Peter Doran, retired Army Col. Sergio de la Peña and former Roanoke City, Va., Sheriff Octavia Johnson.

Youngkin has campaigned on lifting coronavirus restrictions and has highlighted his Second Amendment and pro-life stances. The newest nominee says he is prepared to lead, excited to serve and humbled by the trust Virginians have placed in him. “Virginians have made it clear that they are ready for a political outsider with proven business experience to bring real change in Richmond,” expressed Youngkin.

The Republican will face off against the winner of the Democrat gubernatorial primary in November.
