Youngkin sends handwritten apology to Nancy Pelosi for dig over Paul Pelosi attack

A spokesman for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi confirmed to Fox News that Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin sent Pelosi a handwritten apology note regarding the assault on her husband, Paul Pelosi.

The spokesman also confirmed the speaker has accepted the apology.

Youngkin faced backlash for a remark he made at a Virginia campaign rally for GOP candidate Yesli Vega when he said, "There’s no room for violence anywhere, but we’re going to send her back to be with him in California." 

Democrats quickly criticized those remarks for being insensitive.

On the topic of the Paul Pelosi attack, Arizona Rep. Andy Biggs on Tuesday night said of Speaker Pelosi: "She’s losing the gavel but finding the hammer. Too soon? Is that too soon?"

"Absolutely revolting and disgusting," Rep. Don Beyer, D-Va., tweeted. "Andy Biggs has encouraged political violence before, but this is particularly awful even for him." 

Beyer overwhelmingly secured his fifth term in Congress on Tuesday night against Republican Karina Lipsman. Meanwhile, Biggs secured his re-election to represent Arizona's 5th Congressional District.
