Hugo For Lieutenant Governor Weekly Newsletter 1/31/2021
We had another great week on the campaign trail. I wanted to take a moment to give you an update on our campaign’s activities this past week.
Speaking To Grassroots Republicans
As with previous weeks, I made it a priority last week to visit with our local Republican committees across the Commonwealth. I had the opportunity to address Republicans in Isle of Wight County, Loudoun County, Prince Edward County, Culpeper County, and Virginia Beach.
Speaking to Republicans in Prince Edward County
This week, I’ll be visiting with Republicans in Lunenberg County, Henrico County, and Alexandria. I’ll also be speaking to the College Republicans at my alma mater William and Mary!
We are scheduling more visits with local GOP units everyday. Contact our campaign manager Dustin Rhodes at [email protected] to make sure we have the next meeting time for your local committee!
Consolidating Conservative Support
This last week, I was honored to add former RPV Chairman John Whitbeck to our growing list of conservative endorsements.
Here are what some other prominent conservatives are saying about our campaign:
Congressman Ben Cline: “I am supporting Tim Hugo for Lieutenant Governor because I know he can beat the liberal Democrats this November and help put our Commonwealth back on the right track. Tim has a strong record when it comes to cutting taxes, reducing regulations, and growing jobs and that is what our Commonwealth needs now more than ever.”
Former Delegate Brenda Pogge: “Virginians who care about pro-life, pro-family and faith issues can always count on Tim Hugo. As a Delegate, Tim was one of my closest allies in the fight to protect the unborn and our traditional Judeo-Christian values. I strongly encourage all my fellow Virginia conservatives to join me in supporting Tim Hugo’s campaign for Lieutenant Governor.”
Former Delegate Scott Lingamfelter: “As a Delegate, I fought hard everyday against attacks on Virginians’ Second Amendment rights, and I can tell you Tim Hugo was always an invaluable ally in those fights. I strongly encourage all gun owners and those concerned about Democrats’ attacks on our right to keep and bear arms to join me in supporting Tim Hugo for Lieutenant Governor. We can count on Tim to stand with us and it is one of the many reasons I am proud to throw my support behind his candidacy.”
Delegate Rob Bell: “You can always count on Tim Hugo to fight for crime victims. He was instrumental in passing laws to hold violent criminals and sex offenders accountable for their crimes, especially those who engage in sex trafficking of children. He also stood up for law enforcement. In recent months we have seen proposals to defund the police and reduce penalties for those who assault law enforcement — we can count on Tim to oppose them. I encourage everyone to join me in supporting Tim for Lieutenant Governor.”
Issue Spotlight – Second Amendment
I am proud to have a lifetime “A” rating from the NRA and equally proud to have received a “Pro-Gun” rating from the Virginia Citizens Defense League in 2019.
As a member of the House of Delegates, I voted for 17 years to protect Virginians’ Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. I voted to repeal unconstitutional one gun a month laws, voted for the restaurant carry bill, and voted for concealed carry reciprocity in Virginia.
Unfortunately, Democrats have repealed much of the legislation I fought for and replaced it with radical anti-gun policies.
As Lieutenant Governor, I’ll oppose the Democrats’ attacks on your constitutional right to own a firearm and protect you and your family. I’ll work to repeal their restored one gun a month rule and so called “red flag law” that violates both your Second Amendment and Fifth Amendment right to due process.
