Murdoch Encouraged Virginia’s Youngkin to Seek Presidency

From a Washington Post story by Laura Vozzella, Sarah Ellison, and Maeve Reston headlined “Rupert Murdoch encouraged Virginia’s Glenn Youngkin to seek presidency”:

Media mogul Rupert Murdoch has repeatedly encouraged Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin (R) to run for president in 2024, according to two people familiar with entreaties made in at least two face-to-face meetings.

The meetings took place months ago, but Murdoch’s ask has taken on fresh relevance as Youngkin continues to lay the groundwork for a potential last-minute White House bid and as Murdoch outlets hyped his presidential prospects this month with a mix of sober Wall Street Journal analysis and buzzy Page Six blurbs.
