A spokesman for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi confirmed to Fox News that Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin sent Pelosi a handwritten apology regarding the attack on her husband Paul Pelosi.
The spokesman also confirmed that the spokesman has accepted the apology.
Youngkin faced backlash when he said at a campaign rally in Virginia for GOP candidate Yesli Vega, “There’s no room for violence anywhere, but we’re going to send it back to him in California.”
Democrats quickly criticized these statements as insensitive.

As of Wednesday afternoon, it was unclear which party controlled the majority in the House of Representatives.
On the subject of Paul Pelosi’s attack, Andy Biggs of Arizona said of spokeswoman Pelosi on Tuesday night: “She loses the hammer but finds the hammer. Too early? Is that too early?”
A clip of the remark at the GOP watch party in Arizona sparked backlash on Twitter.
“Absolutely disgusting and disgusting,” tweeted Rep. Don Beyer, D-Va. “Andy Biggs has called for political violence before, but this is particularly horrific even for him.”
Beyer overwhelmingly secured his fifth term in Congress on Tuesday night against Republican Karina Lipsman. Meanwhile, Biggs secured his re-election as the representative of Arizona’s 5th congressional district.
