Dear Fellow Virginia Republicans,
Yesterday, Virginians from across the Commonwealth gathered in our first-ever unassembled RPV State Convention for a time-honored task: To elect Republicans to senior positions of party leadership.
As we turn from party elections to the task of electing our great Republicans to federal office, I wish to express my sincere thanks to my fellow Republicans for placing their trust in me to serve as your state party chairman. I pledge to you that I will devote every degree of mind, spirit, and energy that I possess to the long-range interests of our party—and to the essential mission of electing Republicans and defeating Democrats.
On behalf of RPV and our 126 local Republican units, I express our appreciation to Chairman Jack Wilson for his service to our party in leadership positions at the unit, district, state, and national levels.
I am especially grateful to those who offered themselves as candidates, and I congratulate those who have assumed positions of senior leadership in our party. Congratulations on a job well done to National Committeeman Morton Blackwell, National Committeewoman Patricia Bast Lyman, Elector Bishop E W Jackson, and Elector John Selph. You have distinguished yourselves, and all Virginia Republicans are proud of you.
With party elections behind us, we now turn our full energies to re-electing President Trump, electing Daniel Gade to the U.S. Senate, and electing 11 great Republicans to the U.S. House. We are at a critical crossroads in the life of our Commonwealth and country, and it is imperative that Virginia Republicans elect and send these outstanding leaders to Washington next January.
And so, let us begin by recapturing our party’s will to fight and win, confident in the conviction that we take up this fight for our families—and for our future as a free people.
I truly look to the future of the Republican Party of Virginia with great confidence—not because I have been chosen as party chairman, but because of all of you who daily demonstrate your love of Commonwealth and country.
Let us begin by rededicating ourselves to the conviction that IT’S TIME TO FIGHT AND WIN AGAIN!
