2:55 am
bathroom. that guy was convicted yesterday. and now there is going to be obviously a sentencing for him. we saw a report from the daily wire that shows when parents were requesting to see some of the curriculum, they want them to sign an nda agreement before they can actually see that, that curriculum. got the former president of the united states that came in and essentially says that it is a culture war that we shouldn't be spending time on this. but the parents that i speak to on a day-to-day basis here in virginia. they say it's the number one issue. todd: looking forward to see what you do all morning live. you will be live with breakfast with friends. nobody does better breakfast with friends lawrence jones. outfit is on point. if i try to take that they wouldn't take me once during the three hour breakfast with friends segment. lawrence: only reason why, guys if jillians wasn't here doing it if she was here i would have to

2:57 am
control of what their children are taught. and who should be directing what happens within their school systems. i think that's a key issue. and parents are fired up. i traveled around with glenn youngkin on saturday. i was out knocking doors. asking people to come out to vote for glenn on saturday. i have never seen this level of enthusiasm. and this level of concern by families across the state what they see happening both with terry mcauliffe and his words but also what they see happening at the national level. what's happening with the biden administration. what's hang here in congress with nancy pelosi in control as people deeply concerned about our nation. that's translating over to this race in the commonwealth. todd: you mentioned around the commonwealth of virginia. what you are telling me this issue of education is resonating outside of your loudoun and fairfax counties. it's resonating throughout the state. >> it is. we hear from the smallest rural counties to population centers
2:58 am
like loudoun and elsewhere. people are concerned about this. they understand that it's parents and families that should be in control of their children's destiny. their children's education. instead, they don't want to hear that it is a bureaucrat or unions that are in charge. that's really a concern of theirs. todd: my quick follow-up. will that be enough to put glenn youngkin over the top next tuesday? >> i think it will. i think this issue and him wanting to empower parents. his record on building a business and being strong on the economy and his record on strong support of public safety, i do think that pushes him across the finish line to victory. jillian: all right. let's talk about this for a second. you are one of 11 lawmakers to send a letter to the president and defense secretary austin on the vaccine man datsd and quote we strongly urge you to reconsider the manner in which you are seeking to address this issue so as not to harm the livelihood of civilian contractors, industry partners and strategic goals of our armed services. can you tell me why this so important to you and why you
