• 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: Gov. Should Apologize

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    Chairman Whitbeck condemns Terry McAuliffe’s Shameful Statement
    Urges the Govenor to Engage in Self Reflection on his own actions.

    “Wednesday, Governor Terry McAuliffe shamefully politicized the aftermath of yesterday’s Congressional shooting by immediately pushing for gun control. Tragedies are not the time for cheap politics and it speaks volumes of the Governor’s character that he has not learned that lesson over his past 4 years in office. Simply put, the Governor’s statement was completely tasteless and, at the very least, he should apologize to victims of the shooting for his tone-deaf political stunt.”

  • RPV Statement on GOP Primary Results

     

    — With our ticket set, it’s time to go win in November —

    RPV Chairman John Whitbeck issued the following statement:

    “Congratulations to Ed Gillespie and Senator Jill Vogel on their victories in today’s primary! I look forward to joining Ed, Jill, and our Attorney General Nominee John Adams on the campaign trail to take back Virginia.”

    “I’d also like to thank our other four candidates and their teams — Senator Frank Wagner, Chairman Corey Stewart, Senator Bryce Reeves, and Delegate Glenn Davis — for their hard work. The passion and energy these candidates brought to the campaign trail lead to close races and excitement across the Republican campaigns.”

    “Now, we take that energy and turn it toward the far-left liberal ticket of Ralph Northam, Justin Fairfax, and Mark Herring. Let’s turn Virginia red!”

  • Whitbeck: Northam Wins Race to the Left

    RPV Chairman John Whitbeck issued the following statement: 

    “It’s official: Ralph Northam has won the Democrat Party of Virginia’s Race to the Left. But Tom Perriello fans should take heart. Publications from the Economist to Politico have noted, both of these candidates ‘agree on most issues’ and ‘both candidates [have been] lurching for increasingly leftward policies.'”

    “Now Virginia Democrats are left with a slate of candidates that are more representative of Vermont’s values than Virginia’s. As the Democrats attempt the impossible task of trying to heal their badly fractured, far-left party while tacking back to the center, the Republican Party of Virginia looks forward to a unified race to take back Virginia’s Governor’s Mansion and other statewide offices.”

     

  • Chairman Whitbeck: Terry McAuliffe Announces his 2020 Presidential Campaign With Climate Alliance Kickoff

    Add your name below and tell Terry McAuliffe Virginians needs jobs, not lectures — and we don’t want him anywhere near the White House!

    RPV Chairman John Whitbeck issued the following statement:

    “I’m surprised that Governor McAuliffe has decided to kick off his 2020 campaign for the Democrat Presidential nomination this early. That’s the only real explanation possible for his decision to tie Virginia to policies that will destroy Virginia jobs and put us at a competitive disadvantage compared to other states.”

    “President Trump made it clear that he was far more concerned about jobs in Pittsburgh than the opinion of bureaucrats in Paris, and for good reason. The Paris Accords put the U.S. at a competitive and financial disadvantage for what is at best negligible gain. Fully enacted, and with all goals met, the accords would reduce global temperatures by 0.2 degrees.”

    “Governor McAuliffe had a clear opportunity to show Virginians where he stands – for affordable energy, more jobs, and stronger economic growth, or for currying favor with Democrat primary voters. This was a test, and Governor McAuliffe has failed.”

  • Whitbeck: Withdrawal from Paris Accord Puts America and American Jobs First

    — Terry McAuliffe’s Cap and Trade scheme is job-killing liberal virtue signalling —

    RPV Chairman John Whitbeck issued the following statement:

    “President Trump’s executive decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord is in the best interest of our taxpayers and delivers on his promise to put America first. Today’s action ends the lingering threat to 140,000 energy jobs in the Commonwealth.”

    “In Virginia, Ralph Northam, Terry McAuliffe, and Tom Perriello have made it clear they intend to take the opposite approach, creating rules and regulations that hobble job creation, kill jobs, and make life more expensive for working families.”

    “Virginians want jobs not lectures; especially from politicians who put the interests of left wing billionaires ahead of the concerns of working Virginians. To date not one Democrat has been able to say just how much any of these schemes would help the problem they’re supposed to fix. President Obama’s Clean Power Plan would have reduced sea level rise by 0.2 mm. We have yet to see a number from Terry McAuliffe.”

    “The negative repercussions of the Paris Climate Accord would wreak havoc on our economy to the tune of $3 trillion and cause to our nation to lose upwards of 3.1 million manufacturing jobs. Virginians cannot afford to bear the burden of a bad deal that only hurts hardworking people across our country. President Trump remains committed to job growth, reinvigorating our economy, and maintaining our status as a leader on the world stage.”
