After expressing appreciation to outgoing RPV chairman Jack Wilson for his service in leadership, Rich Anderson had special gratitude to all the candidates for stepping forward.
Rich further stated: “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.”
