The Virginia governor’s race is only one week away, and all recent polls have suggested the election could shape up to be an extremely close contest between former Virginia governor and Democratic candidate Terry McAuliffe and Republican candidate and businessman Glenn Youngkin. Arnon Mishkin, Director of the Fox News Decision Desk joins to break down the circumstances leading to the close race in the longtime blue state, crediting Youngkin’s moderate Republican stance and how Youngkin focused on the local issue of education while McAuliffe has tried to make the race national by invoking former President Trump. Later, he explains what he is watching for in the upcoming New Jersey governor’s race and he details why these upcoming gubernatorial elections will not be as good a measure for forecasting the 2022 midterms as watching President Biden’s agenda closely.
October is breast cancer awareness month. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in the U.S. Former White House press secretary and “Outnumbered” co-host Kayleigh McEnany was never diagnosed with breast cancer, but it did run in her family.
