(FOX NEWS) – Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., clashed with CNN host Brianna Keilar Monday in a fiery exchange over whether or not critical race theory (CRT) was actually being taught in Virginia public schools.

During an appearance on “New Day,” Scott refuted claims that CRT was not being taught in Virginia schools by pointing to specific examples of its promotion by officials within the state, as Keilar repeated the narrative by many Democrats and media pundits that the controversial subject was not part of the curriculum.

Keilar initiated the debate by asking Scott if Republicans across the country would ignore former President Donald Trump as they campaigned for the 2022 midterm elections, appearing to claim that was part of Virginia Gov.-elect Glenn Youngkin’s, R., strategy to victory.

“I think what Democrats are going to continue to do is talk about Donald Trump. I think Republicans are going to continue to talk about issues. Glenn Youngkin won his race because he talked about issues and I think that’s what’s going to happen,” Scott said.
