As we receive more information regarding the delegate signup process, we will be sure to keep you informed. In the meantime, I am going to continue working hard to earn your support and wanted to provide you an update on our campaign.
Speaking To Grassroots Republicans
I am continuing to travel the Commonwealth both virtually and in-person to meet and speak with Republicans throughout Virginia. Last week’s travels brought me to Prince William, Campbell, Williamsburg, James City, Charlottesville, Washington, Page, and Shenandoah.
This week, we’ll be visiting with Republican voters in Fredericksburg, King and Queen, Staunton, Loudoun, Roanoke, and Sussex.
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
As with previous weeks we are continuing to pick up some major conservative endorsements. This week, I was honored to add Senate Republican Leader Tommy Norment and former Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli to the growing list of conservatives who are backing our campaign.
I am honored to have the support of Senator Norment and Secretary Cuccinelli and dozens of other prominent conservatives like Congressman Ben Cline and Congressman Morgan Griffith.
Issue Spotlight – Election Integrity
The principle of one person one vote is the foundation of our Republic. Unfortunately, many Virginians and Americans have serious concerns about voter fraud and the integrity of the ballot box.
For 17 years, I fought for commonsense election integrity measures like the 2007 legislation I authored that directed localities to replace direct recording electronic (DRE) voting machines with paper ballot machines. This legislation was vital to making sure there was a paper record to counter any possibility of electronic hacking by foreign or domestic forces.
But we must do more. As Lieutenant Governor, I’ll work to reinstate common sense measures like requiring a photo ID to cast a ballot. Furthermore, I’ll work to update Virginia’s voter rolls, tighten vote by mail requirements, and ensure poll watchers have unrestricted access to all vote counting and ballot transport.
