Democrats face an uphill battle when it comes to keeping the majority in the House and Senate next November. If Virginia's governor's race this this week is any indication where voters are leaning we could be seeing a red wave in the 2022 Midterms. So how exactly did Governor-elect Glenn Youngkin and Republicans win Virginia? Some are pointing to the debate over critical race theory being taught to school children.
