Candidates for Governor

Today Denver Riggleman officially declared his candidacy for Governor of Virginia. Denver Riggleman, a former Air Force intelligence officer, and father of three, is the owner/operator of Silverback distillery in Afton Virginia. In his announcement Riggleman said:

“I am running to radically change business as usual in Virginia. The plain truth is that the system is wired for lobbyists and large donors and against small business and the people. I have explored every other avenue to fight for not just myself but for the people of Virginia. I believe someone needs to use blunt force trauma to break up the good ole boy system in Richmond that, as Ronald Reagan said, ‘takes from the needy to give to the greedy.’”

Riggleman joins an already crowded field of candidates for Governor: former candidate for US Senate Ed Gillespie, Prince William county chairman of the board Corey Stewart, and state Senator Frank Wagner.

Denver Riggleman’s campaign kickoff will be at his distillery on Saturday, January 14th:

Official Campaign Kickoff
Silverback Distillery
Saturday, January 14th

Afton, VA 22920

    My county Republican unit recently contacted the four gubernatorial campaigns regarding attending one of our upcoming meetings. We have heard nothing from the Ed Gillespie campaign and nothing from the Frank Wagner campaign. We had a prompt response from several Corey Stewart staffers. Denver Riggleman responded to us immediately and in person. Am I impressed? You bet.

      Candidates should always respond quickly even if they can’t attend. One of our local pols had a similar experience with Ed. I think his staff needs to be more on top of these things. Failing to call someone back leaves a bad taste in their mouth.

        The candidates don’t need the local pols, they got a primary. What else would you expect?

        Thanks SCC, for the results and the tab to the taxpayers, really helps the brand!

      How does one contact you?

      • Sailblazer

        Staffers for Gillespie and Wagner need to check the incoming messages on their websites. If they can’t manage a website inquiry, maybe they shouldn’t try to manage a state.

    • Rocinante

      Really? That doesn’t tell you anything else?

      Will you be heading up Republicans for Northam again?

      • John Fredericks

        Not in the Democratic primary, we have a Republican primary on the same day, June 13 2017. In June of 2013 it was Northam vs. Chopra-only game in town that day!

        • Rocinante

          “Not in the Democratic primary…”

          Thanks, good to know.

  • Rocinante

    What was it he did before?

  • John Fredericks

    On #JFRS today GOP Gov. hopeful Dennis Riggleman says,”Richmond is the biggest self licking ice cream cone…I’m going to drag them into sunlight.”
    “Richmond is rigged and wired- rigged for the elites and wired for the cronies.”
