After the event, FCRC Chairman Matt Ames issued the following statement:
“1 in 7 Virginia voters lives in Fairfax County. No candidate has been elected Governor of the Commonwealth without also carrying Fairfax County in more than 30 years – and that includes Republican Governors McDonnell, Gilmore, and Allen. Winning in Fairfax County is the key to winning in Virginia. The FCRC is looking forward to working with a strong statewide ticket after the June primary, and we will be ready to make that happen.”
