GLENN YOUNGKIN BANISHES DONALD TRUMP FROM VIRGINIA IN CAMPAIGN HOMESTRETCH
October 27, 2021 — Today, The Lincoln Project has released a new ad as part of the organization’s infamous “Audience Of One” strategy. The commercial, which speaks directly to former President Donald Trump, tells the story of a gubernatorial candidate — Glenn Youngkin— elevated to victory in a GOP primary by the MAGA base, only to shun them in the homestretch of the campaign.
The ad is called “Ungrateful,” and will air on Fox News in the Palm Beach media market.
“During the primary, and in certain parts of Virginia, Glenn Youngkin was as big a fan of Donald Trump as anyone, but now that it’s time to close the deal with Virginians, Youngkin is begging the former president to stay away,” said Lincoln Project co-founder Rick Wilson. “This dynamic is representative of today’s Republican Party: Court Trump and his base to win the primary and then run away from the MAGA world as fast as possible. Our message to Trump with this ad is simple: You’re being played.”

The Lincoln Project is a group of dedicated Americans who worked to defeat Donald J. Trump and continue to fight on behalf of American democracy.
