Virginia Republican gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin expects to win over voters in the heavily blue Northern Virginia region based on the “universal issues” of reopening schools and protecting the state’s Right to Work status, Youngkin told host Alex Marlow on Tuesday’s edition of Sirius XM’s Breitbart News Daily . Northern Virginia is home to a high concentration of Democrat voters, particularly in Fairfax County — the most populous county in the state — which voted for President Joe Biden over former President Donald Trump in the 2020 election, 70 percent to 28 percent. Marlow observed that Northern Virginia’s proximity to Washington, DC, has made the region prone to “swamp expansion.” He asked Youngkin, who is vying for the Republican nomination for governor which will be decided on May 8, “How do you contend as a Republican in a state that is increasingly becoming a subsidiary of Washington?” Youngkin replied, “There are universal issues right now that are not … [Read more...] about GOP Gubernatorial Candidate Youngkin: Reopening Schools, ‘Right to Work’ Will Swing Northern Virginia Democrats
College has become a staple of national news and a source of serious bipartisan concern about equity. For example, the Washington Post ran an op-ed last week that illuminated the inequitable share of college debt burdening Black students . The New York Post published a feature on Saturday about the $1.8 million salary of the president of Long Island University. To cap off the unmasking of inequities within academia, the New York Post reported on Sunday that the cash-strapped City University of New York system hired the “powerhouse” consulting firm McKinsey & Co. for $3 million for two months of work to come up with a fall reopening plan. Democratic New York state Sen. John Liu from Queens, New York City’s most middle-class borough, asked: “High-priced consultants on a plan for which there are already enough highly paid CUNY officials, while students continue to suffer from a shortage of full-time professional faculty?” This is about equity, pure and simple. What makes … [Read more...] about How can colleges recover their civic souls?
This was bound to be a fraught time for Minneapolis, with the trial of former police officer Derek Chauvin now wrapping up its third week. The recent killing of 20-year-old Daunte Wright at the hands of former police officer Kim Potter during a traffic stop has amplified tensions in the city. This comes on the heels of nationally-released video footage of a traffic stop in December 2020, in Windsor, Va., in which police officers pulled out weapons on Caron Nazario at a gas station, ultimately leaving him — an Army veteran of Black and Latino descent — prone on the ground, blinded by pepper spray and sobbing. How to make sense of it all? There are similarities among the incidents, to be sure: all involved Black men and white cops, all were captured on videotape, none of the suspects had been stopped for serious crimes, and none were armed. Still, as Mona Charen noted in The Bulwark this week, “[t]hey may be similar on the surface, but they are quite different in the … [Read more...] about What do George Floyd, Caron Nazario and Daunte Wright teach about policing?
