The Republican party of Virginia is all in for Donald Trump, choosing his campaign manager Corey Stewart to head up Team Virginia, formerly known as Victory Virginia. Stewart heads the Trump campaign in Virginia, is a candidate for Governor in 2017, and currently chairs the Prince William County Board of Supervisors. Former Presidential candidate Governor Jim Gilmore will share the duties with Stewart. RPV chairman John Whitbeck made the announcement on Thursday saying,
“With Corey Stewart on board, we will be able to bring together the resource of the Trump campaign and combine them with the resources that the Republican National Committee and RPV have already committed to this effort, Team Virginia is the largest and most aggressive plan in the history of the RPV.”
Team Virginia will focus on voter registration and turnout in addition to communications and social media.
“People are going to be surprised at the number of new Republicans who come out to support Trump and the Republican ticket,” said Stewart.
