On our first Sunday, after my wife and I moved back to Virginia in late December 2020, we joined friends at their church. It just so happened that the long-standing warden at McLean’s non-denominational Holy Trinity Church was stepping down that day. We were asked if we’d like to meet him.
His name was Glenn Youngkin. “He’s getting ready to run for governor,” my friends said. I was mildly surprised, since I’d never heard of the former Carlyle Group CEO, despite his being one of the most successful business people in the country.
After a brief conversation, the observation hit me: he may be the most talented candidate I’d ever met. And I’d worked in some 35 US Senate and congressional campaigns over nearly three decades, most of them winners.
