Bolling: Youngkin Would Be Wise to Complete Gubernatorial Term Before Running for Higher Office
I obviously have no idea what Governor Youngkin’s long term political goals may be, but I can tell you this: If he’s contemplating running for President in 2024, that’s a huge mistake.
The cycle just isn’t favorable for a sitting Virginia governor to run for President in the third year of his one consecutive term in office. Every governor who has tried to do this has failed, and his effectiveness and popularity in Virginia has suffered.
Just do your job as governor. Serve out your term. If you do it well, future opportunities will present themselves.
