Terry McAuliffe says if he loses, Trump’s ‘comeback’ could be imminent

The Virginia gubernatorial race could lead to former President Donald Trump’s return if the Democratic contender loses — that’s according to Terry McAuliffe himself.

Polling favors McAuliffe 49% to 45% for Republican candidate Glenn Youngkin, a recent poll among 802 likely voters found. During a recent MSNBC interview, host Joe Scarborough noted McAuliffe’s campaign strategy, that is to one day say he’s winning and then opine on falling numbers the next day.

Youngkin is a “Trump wannabe,” McAuliffe said.

“He has said so much of the reason he is running for governor is because of Donald Trump,” said the Virginia Democrat.

McAuliffe also brought up Youngkin’s aim to ban abortions and what he called “Georgia’s anti-voting laws.”

“This is big for Donald Trump,” he said. “He’s endorsed Youngkin five times. This gets Trump off the mat. This kicks off his 2024. We can’t let it happen.”

Rev. Al Sharpton asked whether a loss in the race would mean a Trump “comeback.”

“If I were not to win this, this would be, as I say, the comeback of Donald Trump,” McAuliffe replied. “This would lift him off the mat.”
