Democrats spent the last two years calling to defund and abolish the police. Now, the national murder rate is about to hit its highest level in 25 years.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki blamed the “underfunding” of some police forces for the spike in crime across the country.
But, Elaine Luria voted AGAINST condemning calls to defund the police earlier this year, doubling down on efforts that make our communities less safe. So according to the White House, Luria is to blame.
“Democrats pushed defunding the police and left families and businesses to protect themselves as crime skyrocketed,” said CLF Press Secretary Cally Perkins. “Elaine Luria’s soft on crime approach has had devastating consequences for communities and proves she can’t be trusted to keep Virginians safe.”
