• Chairman Whitbeck: It’s Time for a Special Prosecutor for the Clinton Foundation

    RPV Chairman John Whitbeck issued the following statement:

    “The latest details emerging from the most recent set of Hillary Clinton emails are disturbing, to say the least. Big donors to the Clinton Foundation got special treatment at the Clinton State Department. This has all the hallmarks of pay to play, but in the current environment, any conclusions reached by the FBI would be suspect. If we’re ever to get to the bottom of the shady dealings and crony capitalism of Clinton, Inc., we need a special prosecutor. Attorney General Lynch should appoint one as soon as possible.”

  • Chairman Whitbeck: Why Didn’t Terry McAuliffe Just Do This in the First Place?

    – After a Supreme Court ruling and temper tantrum, Governor finally follows the law   –
     

    RPV Chairman John Whitbeck issued the following statement:

    “Today’s announcement by Governor McAuliffe that he will begin restoring rights on an individual basis is interesting. There was nothing preventing Terry McAuliffe from doing this in the first place. But the Governor’s desire to cut corners and do things the easy way in an effort to help Hillary Clinton at the polls in November created confusion and heartache for tens of thousands of Virginians.”

    “I sincerely hope that Governor McAuliffe and his team have put in the hard work required to make sure that this second chance goes to deserving Virginians – and not those still paying their debts to society.”

  • RPV Rolls Out New Local Unit Websites Built With Win.GOP

    The Republican Party of Virginia (RPV) is proud to announce that more than 50 local committees in the Commonwealth are now equipped with official websites capable of engaging and mobilizing Republican voters ahead of the 2016 election. RPV partnered with the Republican National Committee (RNC) and .gop, the only online domain in the world run by a political party, to build and launch the county sites.

    “As one of the most important swing states in the nation, we in Virginia know that the key to electing strong, conservative leaders starts with engaging voters at the local level in valuable and accessible ways,” said RPV Chairman John Whitbeck. “We are proud to ensure today that every county has access to the online tools and resources necessary to do so.”

    In order to achieve this goal, RPV worked with local units not already online to build a new site using win.gop –  a new website-building tool for Republican candidates and parties with built-in donation, integration, event management, and social media engagement capabilities. Each site created through win.gop uses a .gop domain to enhance branding and expand the Republican footprint online.

    “In today’s technology-driven world, it is critical that parties and candidates meet this need head-on in an easy, hassle-free way,” said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus. “Virginia is leading the charge in increasing voter engagement and turnout online by utilizing the win.gop website for each of its counties, and I encourage other state and county parties as well as candidates to follow their lead ahead of the November election.”

    Win.gop is an innovative and user-friendly tool that provides Republicans at every level of government with quality websites and a more notable online presence,” said Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC) President and .gop Chairman Matt Walter. “This new initiative by the RPV perfectly illustrates how the .gop domain can be used to get out the vote and improve our voter-engagement strategies.”

  • Chairman Whitbeck: Lt. Gov. Kaine Wouldn’t Recognize Hillary Clinton’s Running Mate

    RPV Chairman John Whitbeck issued the following statement:

    “In 2005, a Democrat Lt. Governor ran for Governor of Virginia. He said he was conservative, supported restrictions on abortion, and opposed taxpayer funding for abortion. He said he was a strong supporter of the Second Amendment, and ridiculed anyone who said he’d raise taxes. Now, after a series of expedient policy changes and evolutions, Lt. Governor Tim Kaine wouldn’t recognize the Tim Kaine running with Hillary Clinton. But Virginia voters do recognize him as the political chameleon he has become. That’s why he will never be Vice President.”
  • Chairman Whitbeck: Hillary 5.0 is Just More of the Same

    RPV Chairman John Whitbeck issued the following statement:

    “Tonight, Hillary Clinton did her best to complete the image makeover Democrats have been pushing for years. Speaker after speaker attempted to ‘humanize’ Secretary Clinton, assuring us that the question-parsing, honesty-challenged lawyer we see on TV isn’t the real Hillary.”

    “Virginians know better. Hillary 5.0 is the same as every version before – a career politician who lied about her email, damaged national security for her own personal convenience, whose record includes the Iran nuclear deal, a failed “reset” with Russia and the basket case that is Libya. ”

    “The new Hillary is just like the old Hillary, more of the same. Virginians are tired of more of the same, which is why they’re going to elect Donald Trump in November.”

  • Whitbeck: Kaine Abandons Integrity for Clinton, Inc.

    RPV Chairman John Whitbeck issued the following statement on Hillary Clinton’s selection of Tim Kaine as her running mate:

    It is no surprise that Hillary Clinton has chosen Tim Kaine to be her running mate. In recent weeks, Tim Kaine has demonstrated his willingness to defend the indefensible, simply to avoid the heartbreak of being left at the altar a second time.

    Virginians know the real Tim Kaine – the Governor who breaks his promises not to raise taxes, and who shuts down rest stops to blackmail the legislature into raising taxes. They know the U.S. Senator who shifts to the left when he thinks he has a chance at higher office.

    Virginians know this Tim Kaine all too well. We look forward to educating our fellow Americans about the real Tim Kaine.”John Whitbeck, RPV Chairman

  • Chairman Whitbeck: SCOVA Ruling Establishes Terry McAuliffe is Not Above the Law

    Today’s ruling sends a clear message – executive power has limits, and no one in Virginia is above the law. Terry McAuliffe’s decision to break with centuries of precedent in a blatant effort to stack the deck for Hillary Clinton in November was nothing but a naked power grab. The Supreme Court’s order makes it clear that the Constitution of Virginia, not personal policy preference, rules in Virginia. We are extremely proud that the Republican Leadership in the General Assembly stood up to this Executive Order gone too far. John Whitbeck, RPV Chairman
  • Memo: Tim Kaine’s Audition

    MEMO

    From: John Findlay, RPV Executive Director
    To: Interested Parties
    Re: Tim Kaine’s Audition
    Date: July 14, 2016

    Hillary Clinton’s rolling audition for a running mate returns to Northern Virginia today, as Tim Kaine has his most important audition in his quest to finally be on the ticket.

    Barack Obama left Kaine at the altar in 2012, and Tim Kaine is utterly determined that in 2016 he won’t be left off the ticket. That’s the only real explanation for why Kaine has decided to shrug off Hillary Clinton’s email scandal and campaign for the candidate a New Hampshire newspaper recently called “a human security breach in a pantsuit.”

    Kaine’s audition will likely revolved around his ability to be an attack dog while keeping a smile on his face. But the real test will be Kaine’s ability to go on the attack while ignoring the massive liabilities that his hoped-for running mate brings to the table.

    For example, he’ll have to be able to ignore the fact that countless Virginians who work for the military, government, or contractors would all be in jail if they had handled classified info the way Hillary Clinton did – with “extreme carelessness.” There’s also the matter of her disastrous foreign policy record, from Benghazi to the “Russian reset,” both of which matter a great deal to military communities in Northern Virginia and Hampton Roads.

    Can Tim Kaine talk to reporters and tell them with a straight face that it’s just fine that Tom Brady got a tougher sentence for (allegedly) deflating footballs that Hillary Clinton got for mishandling our nation’s most sensitive information?

    And let’s not forget her outright hostility to coal, the lifeblood of Southwest Virginia. Does Tim Kaine have what it takes to look miners in the eye and tell them he wants to put them out of business like his potential running mate did?

    But most importantly, we’ll find out if Tim Kaine can look ordinary Virginians in the eye and smile, knowing that there’s one set of rules for them, and another set of rules for his boss. That’s what today is about. It’s a test.

    Make no mistake; Tim Kaine is putting his legacy on the line. As of now, the most memorable black marks on Tim Kaine’s record are closing rest stops to blackmail the General Assembly into raising taxes and trying to let convicted murderer Jens Soering out of prison early.
    Does Tim Kaine want to be on the ticket so badly that he’ll sacrifice his credibility and self respect, and excuse all of Hillary Clinton’s scandals?

    We’ll find out at 3:15.

  • Tim Kaine: Defending the Indefensible

    We’ve always known Tim Kaine was a partisan before all else, but his comments yesterday defending Hillary Clinton are beyond belief.

    “I never believed this was going to be something in the criminal realm or even close to it,” Kaine said, following the FBI press conference which laid out in excruciating detail the depths of her dishonesty.

    Kaine did his best to gloss over the massive failure by Clinton by conflating her massive effort to avoid disclosure by risking national security by insinuating that other Secretaries of State have had their own private, unguarded, secret email servers.

    “But I have expected to get to this place where this is in the matter of lessons learned and what should future secretaries of state or officials do, but it’s not in the criminal realm,” he said.

    RPV Chairman John Whitbeck gave the following statement:

    “This video is damning, not only to Hillary Clinton, but also to Tim Kaine. Senator Kaine is so desperate to be a vice presidential nominee that he’s willing to ignore more than a year of blatant, brazen lying by Hillary Clinton. He’s willing to defend the indefensible, simply to avoid being left at the altar again like he was by his good friend Barack Obama.”

    “Senator Kaine should be ashamed. Virginians have had enough of the dishonest, rigged system. Virginians know the rule of law doesn’t apply to Clinton, Inc., and they’ll remember that when they go to the ballot box in November – and in November 2018.”
