Candidates are divided on the vaccine issue-McAuliffe will require students, teachers, and health care workers to be vaccinated, and will support companies that enforce it; Youngkin said he encourages everyone to vaccinate, but opposes enforcement- already become The core issues of the 2021 governorship race.

McAuliffe said: “He wants to send a child to a school where the teacher does not wear a mask and the teacher is not vaccinated? This loses his qualifications as governor.”

At the same time, Yankin insisted that McAuliffe’s description of his position on vaccines was “the most shockingly false statement that my opponent continues to say to me.”

“I was vaccinated; my family was vaccinated. This is the best way for people to protect themselves. In fact, I have required everyone in Virginia to be vaccinated. But I don’t think we should mandate it,” Yang Jin said.

He said he did not want teachers and medical staff who opposed vaccination to lose their jobs. “We need the medical staff. We need the staff. To make their lives difficult, we can’t serve the Virginians,” he said.

When asked whether he thought the vaccines needed for measles, mumps, and rubella should also be Virginians’ personal choices, Youngkin stumbled. He said, “The data related to these vaccines is something we should definitely understand the difference between these vaccines.”

Youngkin, the former co-CEO of the private equity firm Carlyle Group, dismissed Trump’s lies about widespread election fraud. He said that the 2020 elections “have no major fraud” and “can prove to be fair.”

He did not mention Trump himself in the debate and pointed out that McAuliffe often mentioned the former president.

NBC host Chuck Todd (Chuck Todd) asked Youngkin if he would support Trump if he runs for president again In 2024.

“Who knows who will run for president in 2024?” Yankin said. “If he is a Republican candidate, I will support him.”

McAuliffe also kept his distance from his National Party.Ask him if he supports 3.5 trillion USD budget reconciliation plan Both President Biden and Democratic congressional leaders support, and McAuliffe said he thinks this number is “too high.”
But he did urge Congress to approve $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure package.

McAuliffe said: “They must stop chatting there, it’s time for them to pass.”
