A third party candidate interrupted a live gubernatorial debate in Virginia, catching moderator Chuck Todd off guard.

Todd, who is also moderator of NBC’s “Meet the Press,” was moderating the debate, on NBC owned WRC and WZDC. It was also simulcast on C-SPAN.

Democrat Terry McAuliffe and Republican Glenn Youngkin were in the middle of a debate when Princess Blanding (her first name is Princess; she is not actually royalty), a Liberation Party candidate who will appear on the state’s ballots, began shouting a pledge to “defund the police” from the audience.

The progressive candidate did not qualify for the televised debate under official guidelines.

Todd was eventually forced to call for “security” before eventually tossing to a break.
