• RPV Statement on Congressional ObamaCare Repeal

    Today’s vote to send Obamacare repeal to the President’s desk is a historic step toward repairing the damage the Obama administration has done to our health care system and our economy. Yet President Obama’s promised veto also underscores just how important it is that we elect a Republican to the White House in 2016.

    The road to the White House, and the road to Obamacare repeal, runs through Virginia, and Virginia Republicans are dedicated to making both of these goals a reality.Chairman John Whitbeck

  • Statement of RPV Chairman John Whitbeck on Democrat Mayor David Bowers Remarks

    Democrat Mayor Bowers’s comments are offensive and ignorant. Comparing the prudent step of pausing to evaluate a vetting processes to the unconstitutional internment of American citizens proves that Democrats simply don’t understand national security.

    A pause in accepting refugees is prudence. It balances our nation’s security with the compassion for which America has always been known. Internment was a gross historical injustice. There is no comparison.Chairman John Whitbeck

  • Governor Jeb Bush Third To Submit Signatures for RPV Pre-check for March 1 Primary

With over 10,000 signatures, Governor Bush has doubled the necessary signatures to appear on the March 1 ballot and to compete for Virginia’s delegates.”

    “I am humbled to have the support of so many grassroots activists here in Virginia. The Commonwealth will help decide the next president, and I plan to compete here. Thank you to all of the Virginia volunteers that spent countless hours gathering signatures. I will not let you down,” Governor Bush stated.

    The RPV will hold a primary on Super Tuesday, March 1, 2016. With three GOP candidates having gone through the pre-check process and more candidates in the coming days, it is very clear that Virginians will not see a repeat of the 2012 primary when only two candidates qualified for the ballot.

  • VA GOP Statement on Ralph Northam Announcement Today

    Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam announced today that he is running for Governor. Below is a statement from Republican Party of Virginia Chairman John Whitbeck:

    We welcome Democrat Ralph Northam to the race for Governor. Over the next two years we look forward to discussing his far-left, liberal views with voters, such as his unwavering support for Obamacare and his dedication to higher taxes.

    Lt. Governor Northam picked a newsworthy day to announce his campaign. As his second official announcement, he should tell Virginia voters if he stands behind Governor McAuliffe’s refusal to put our Commonwealth ahead of Hillary Clinton’s campaign, or if he will join Republicans in calling for a pause in re-settlement of Syrian refugees.

    A failure to answer would tell us a great deal about the kind of campaign Ralph Northam intends to run.Chairman John Whitbeck
