Statement – The Honorable Geary M. Higgins
February 2, 2020
Today, I am announcing my candidacy for Chairman of the Tenth Congressional District Republican Committee. Now more than ever we must fight for our Republican principles as we see our beloved Commonwealth transform before our very eyes under the misguided values of our Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General and the Democrat-controlled General Assembly.
We are experiencing the painful consequences of the November 2019 election. In three short weeks the General Assembly has pushed troubling initiatives to raise taxes, remove protections for the unborn, our right to self-defense in addition to attacking our religious liberties, our history, and traditional family values. We must reverse this attack on our values and principles. We must solidify and grow our base to win back Virginia.
Like many of my fellow Republicans, I have stood side-by-side with you knocking doors, volunteering and raising money for our candidates and party. I have also been honored to serve on and bring conservative principles to the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors for eight years and the Loudoun County School Board for four years. I look forward to bringing my experience and principles to the work of the Committee.
I was honored to have President Trump’s support for my State Senate bid to succeed Senator Dick Black last year. Should I be elected as the tenth district Chairman, it would be my honor to work to deliver the 10th Congressional District for President Trump and all of our Republican candidates in November.
