Delegate Freitas is running hard in a write-in campaign for his seat in the House of Delegates 30th district. He’s also committed to helping other Republican candidates. From Fredericksburg.com,
“The voters know exactly what’s at stake if we lose: Democrats take control of the government in Virginia,” said Freitas’ campaign manager Joe Desilets, a Republican consultant who worked on the Donald Trump presidential campaign, in a phone call Monday. “And the voters know the legislation that will go along with that—partial birth abortion and restrictions on gun ownership in Virginia.”
“We just know this is a conservative district by nature,” Desilets said. “He won 62 percent in 2017, so our goal is making sure Nick’s supporters get out to the polls on Election Day and know the process for write-in votes. Nick is the GOP nominee, so to vote for him, you fill in the bubble for write-in.”
Desilets said it would cost around $150,000 to run the write-in campaign, about twice as much as Freitas has ever spent on getting elected. However, he said, when the Freitas campaign releases its next campaign finance report in September, it will show closer to $550,000 has been raised in July and August.
With that kind of fundraising Freitas should have plenty of money to help other Republican candidates around the state.
