Youngkin Apologizes to Pelosi For Comments On Husband’s Attack

Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin sent House Speaker Nancy Pelosi a “personal note” apologizing for his comments

  • Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin apologized to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in a written “personal note” for his insensitive comments about the attack on her husband.
  • During a campaign event on the day of the attack, Youngkin said, “There’s no room for violence anywhere, but we’re going to send her back to be with him in California.”
  • The Speaker accepted Youngkin’s apology, which was postmarked on November 1.
  • “My full intention on my comments was to categorically state that violence and the kind of violence that was perpetrated against Speaker Pelosi’s husband is not just unacceptable, it’s atrocious. And I didn’t do a great job with that,” Youngkin said. “And so listen, it was a personal note and it was one between me and the speaker, just to reflect those sentiments.”
