• Chairman Whitbeck: Gillespie Trounces Northam in First Televised Debate

    — Tonight’s results explain why No Show Northam wanted only 3 debates —

    RPV Chairman John Whitbeck issued the following statement:

    “It’s pretty clear now why Ralph Northam was so adamant that he only appear on stage with Ed Gillespie three times, and only twice on television. Ed laid out a clear, common-sense vision for the future of our Commonwealth, and all Ralph Northam had was attacks.”

    “The choice could not be more clear. If we want a governor who will truly be for All Virginians, and build a better future for our children and grandchildren, we will elect Ed Gillespie in November.”

  • UNANIMOUS: Vogel Dominates in Lt. Governor Debate

    The verdict on today’s debate is in, and it’s not even close.

    House of Delegates Speaker-designee Kirk Cox:

    “We couldn’t be more proud of Jill Vogel’s performance in today’s debate. Time and again, Jill not only demonstrated that she stands for mainstream, common-sense solutions, but also that Justin Fairfax is simply too far out on the left fringe for Virginia. There’s only one choice for Lt. Governor, and that’s Jill Vogel.”

    State Sen. Ryan McDougle, R- Hanover:
    “Congratulations to Senator Jill Vogel on her victory in today’s forum. Jill is an accomplished and effective member of the Senate Republican Caucus and I know she’ll be a great President of the Virginia Senate.”

    State Sen. Richard Stuart, R-Stafford
    “Congratulations, Jill Vogel! Jill’s performance today shows she is ready to continue leading Virginia as our next Lieutenant Governor.”

    State Sen. David Suetterlein, R-Roanoke County

    “Jill Vogel again demonstrated she is the only candidate with the experience needed to deliver results for Virginia families.”

    RPV Chairman John Whitbeck:

    “I could not be more proud of Sen. Jill Vogel for her performance in today’s debate. Time and again she showed a mastery of the issues facing Virginia, and her record of working with her colleagues to get things done. That’s a stark contrast to Justin Fairfax who showed just how inexperienced and far-left win he really is. Virginia needs someone with a record of accomplishment, not a Bernie Sanders clone, presiding over the Senate of Virginia.”
  • Whitbeck: Mark Herring’s Salary Shuffle is Disqualifying

    Sleazy doesn’t begin to cover it. When Abbott Labs settled a major Medicaid fraud case, Virginia received millions of dollars. Federal rules are clear: that money can’t be used for salary increases. But Mark Herring found a loophole – and rewarded his favorite staffers with raises as high as 30 percent.

    RPV Chairman John Whitbeck issued the following statement:

    “Mark Herring’s back door pay hikes are worse than unconscionable. They’re disqualifying for anyone who wants to serve the Commonwealth and enforce the rule of law. Rather than use this money for its intended purpose — the public good — Mark Herring found a way to put it into the pockets of selected staff, including his former campaign manager.”

    “Mark Herring has shown time and again that he will put his personal views and interests ahead of his duty to the Commonwealth. It’s time for Herring to go.”

  • Chairman Whitbeck Applauds GOP Ticket Policy Plan to Combat Opioid Epidemic

    RPV Chairman John Whitbeck issued the following statement:

    “Every portion of the Commonwealth of Virginia has been impacted by the deeply personal, destructive affects of the opioid and mental health crisis we are now facing. This silent crisis is tearing apart families, leaving lasting emotional scars on children across Virginia and the rest of the country. It is time that our elected officials provide a clear focus on this important issue.”

    “The policy proposals include: education and prevention training for law enforcement, tackling drug trafficking, and providing support through employment and recovery meetings for addicts, as well as many other positive focused opportunities. I applaud the work of our nominees: Ed Gillespie, Jill Vogel, and John Adams on their plans to combat the opioid epidemic and enhance mental health services. Their complimentary plans are what the Commonwealth needs to combat the crisis.”

  • Whitbeck: Adams Substance Abuse Policy Shows True Leadership

    — Virginia deserves an Attorney General with an agenda for service, not sanctimony —

    RPV Chairman John Whitbeck issued the following statement:

    “I want to commend John Adams and his team on the Substance Abuse policy they released today. As an attorney, I spend many of my days in and around our Commonwealth’s courthouses and justice centers. It’s difficult to put into words the suffering and heartache heroin and opioid addiction causes.”

    “Substantive, detailed policy proposals like the one John Adams and his team rolled out today are the kind of true leadership we need in an Attorney General. For John, it’s not about a rush to the TV cameras — it’s about saving lives and ending suffering. I’m proud to stand with John, and look forward to helping him implement this important agenda.”

  • Whitbeck: Unanimous SCOTUS Ruling Shows Herring Puts Politics, Not Virginia, First

    RPV Chairman John Whitbeck issued the following statement:

    “Today’s unanimous ruling from the U.S. Supreme Court couldn’t be more clear: when it comes to issues of national security, the safety of the American people matters far more than any self-aggrandizing politicians’ sprint to the cameras. Mark Herring derided the President’s efforts as unconstitutional. Not a single Supreme Court Justice agreed.”

    “Just last week Mark Herring told his supporters that he would be ‘the voice of the resistance’ in Richmond. Virginians don’t need a far-left cheerleader who will sue just to curry favor with his base. Virginians need an Attorney General who will put their interests, and not his political career, first.”

  • Whitbeck: Senate Bill is an Important Step on the Road to Obamacare Repeal

    RPV Chairman John Whitbeck issued the following statement:

    “Anyone remotely familiar with health insurance knows just how badly broken Obamacare is. In Virginia, premiums have gone up 77 percent since 2013. Virginians are far too often forced to purchase ‘insurance’ with sky high deductibles, narrow networks, and unaffordable rates. Like the House bill before it, today’s Senate bill moves us closer to fixing this untenable situation.”

    “States need flexibility to reform and rebuild Medicaid and other Federally-backed programs in ways that meet the needs of their populations, and the Senate bill gets us closer to that goal. Republicans are committed to ensuring that Virginians have health care, not just health insurance. The Senate bill moves us closer to that goal.”

  • Whitbeck: The Extreme Left Now Runs Virginia’s Democrat Party

    RPV Chairman John Whitbeck issued the following statement on Virginia Democrats’ Jefferson-Jackson Day Dinner:

    “Today’s events make it clear: the extreme left is now in charge of Virginia’s Democrat party. Democrats like Ralph Northam, Tim Kaine, and Mark Herring have made it clear that there’s no room for any dissent from the far-left, Sanders-Perriello line.”

    “Democrats are doing their best to paper over Ralph Northam’s leftward tilt, but they’re hamstrung by their own radical base. For Virginia Democrats, moderation is truly an unacceptable vice.”

  • Whitbeck: After First Attorney General Debate Adams is Clear Choice

    RPV Chairman John Whitbeck issued the following statement:

    “John Adams overwhelmingly won today’s debate by presenting his clear plan to stop the partisan games in the Attorney General’s office. His plans for Virginia to uphold and defend the Constitution will be a refreshing change from our current Attorney General’s political motivations. Republicans across Virginia look forward to working alongside Attorney General John Adams.”
