“Now, schools want to teach your kids hate-filled thoughts and Terry McAuliffe wants you to disappear,” the ad says.
First on Granthshala: Former Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley exerting more pressure Virginia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe As the Old Dominion governor’s race enters its final stages.
Stand for America, Haley’s issue advocacy group, is launching a new ad campaign targeting McAuliffe for its stance on parental involvement in education.
The ad, titled “You’re a Parent,” highlights the role parents play in their children’s lives and slams the former Democrat governor for saying he doesn’t believe parents should say schools What are you teaching your children?

In addition, advertising mention McAuliffe told Virginia’s second governor debate last month, where she said she doesn’t think “parents should tell schools what they should be teaching.”
“Now, schools want to teach your kids hate-filled thoughts and Terry McAuliffe wants you to disappear,” said the ad, obtained exclusively by Granthshala News.
“Tell Terry McAuliffe he’s wrong on education,” it continues. “Because you are the parent, and the parent is visible.”
“Union owners and liberal activists think they know what’s best for students in Virginia,” Haley told Granthshala News in a statement Monday. “This is to remind us that parents have the final say in their child’s education.”
The election inches closer as McAuliffe is neck-and-neck in the Virginia gubernatorial race against Republican nominee Glenn Youngkin.
Haley traveled to Virginia in July of this year and ran to stump for Youngkin, giving the Republican nominee a political boost against McAuliffe.
Voting day in Virginia is November 2, a race widely seen as a bell for the upcoming 2022 congressional midterm elections.
