Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin made light of the violent assault on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband, who was attacked in an early-morning break-in at their California dwelling on Friday.
Just sooner than 2:30 a.m. Friday morning, an attacker broke into Pelosi’s San Francisco dwelling reportedly searching for the House Speaker sooner than the assailant “violently assaulted” her 82-year-old husband Paul Pelosi with a hammer. Paul Pelosi was left hospitalized with blunt-force trauma to his head and physique.
Pelosi was in Washington, DC, with her protective detail at the time of the attack, authorities talked about.
While speaking at a rally with seventh District GOP candidate Yesli Vega Friday afternoon, Youngkin talked about he had “enough” of political opponents like Democratic Rep. Abigail Spanberger, who presently serves in Congress representing the state’s seventh District and President Joe Biden.
Youngkin went on to invoke Nancy Pelosi, mentioning the break-in and subsequent assault of her husband sooner than saying he and his supporters had been going to oust the House Speaker at the polls.
“There’s no room for violence anywhere, but we’re gonna send her [Nancy Pelosi] back to be with him in California,” Youngkin talked about. “That’s what we’re going to go do.”

In a press launch to Insider, a spokeswoman for Youngkin talked about: “As the governor clearly said, the assault on Paul Pelosi was wrong and there is no place for violence. He wishes him a full recovery and is keeping the Pelosi family in his prayers.”
Police identified the suspect as 42-year-old David Depape.
“The Speaker and her family are grateful to the first responders and medical professionals involved, and request privacy at this time,” Nancy Pelosi’s office talked about in response to the attack.
