• Robert Hurt Votes for Resolution of Disapproval of the President’s Unlawful Prisoner Exchange

    Congressman Robert Hurt, R-5th, released the following statement after voting in favor of H.Res. 644, a resolution of disapproval of the Obama administration’s failure to comply with the lawful statutory requirement of notifying Congress 30 days prior to the release of detainees from the United States Naval Station at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba:

    “In transferring five senior members of the Taliban to the government of Qatar and failing to give Congress the appropriate notice, the Obama administration broke the law.  The administration’s failure to notify Congress of the prisoner exchange was not only unlawful but also a clear and present danger to our national security.  Unfortunately, this is an example of the President’s acting unilaterally and disregarding laws and Constitutional constraints.  I was proud to cosponsor this resolution and see it pass the House with bipartisan support as a signal to the President that Congress will not tolerate the administration’s efforts to ignore U.S. law.”

  • New Website, New Grassroots Club!

    Friends,

    For months now, I’ve been telling you that there are exciting things coming here at RPV.

    In the spring, we launched our new data system and new grassroots advocacy tools. Last week we announced that our cutting edge data tools have been integrated with Republican efforts nationwide. Today, we’re launching our new website.

    We’re putting the pieces in place to make sure that our shared conservative values carry the day — not only this year, but for decades to come.

    But the last piece of the puzzle is still missing — you, as a card-carrying, pin-wearing, active member of our GOP grassroots club!

    When grassroots Republicans work together, there’s nothing we can’t accomplish. I’ve seen that truth illustrated time and time again over my political life.

    Whether it’s breaking a Democrat stranglehold on the General Assembly with George Allen, or electing sending 8 Virginia Republicans to Washington to give Nancy Pelosi her pink slip, when the Republican Party of Virginia moves as one, we win elections.

    With a strong, energized grassroots base, there’s nothing we can’t accomplish — building our majorities in the state Senate and House of Delegates in 2015, and casting Virginia’s 13 electoral votes for our GOP nominee in 2016.

    Nothing is beyond the reach of an energized Republican Party with an active grassroots base — not even party registration and the end of our perennial debate of primaries versus conventions!

    But to do the big things, we need everyone on board.

    Click here and sign up for an $8.95 per month recurring donation. We’ll send you an exclusive “Growing the Grassroots” pin to let everyone know that you’re helping build the foundations for victory!

    Then, get 10 of your friends to sign up, too. Once they’re on board, we’ll give you a complimentary ticket to the 2015 RPV Advance! Sign up 10 more and we’ll give you another ticket. And if your friends sign up 10 people, they’re in for free, too!

    That’s it! With you and tens of thousands like you joining the fight, we can build the grassroots army we need to win in 2014 — and beyond!

    I know I can count on you. I look forward to seeing you at the Advance!

    Let’s go win!

  • The Education of Terence Continues

    Statement of RPV Chairman Pat Mullins on Terry McAuliffe’s Medicaid expansion plan:

    “Now, as before, Republicans stand ready to work with the Governor to improve access to health care in Virginia. But the idea of putting Virginia taxpayers on the hook for funding a fundamentally broken program – especially when the state is facing it’s own financial problems, and funding from the Federal government looks more shaky than ever – is simply a non-starter.”

    “Terry McAuliffe is still just learning how to be governor. And it’s not pretty.”

  • Why Lie To Us?

     

    Warner promised voters: There is no plan being proposed that I will support that will force people out of their existing plan if they have it and they like their existing doctor.

    Man in audience: Why lie to us?

    Warner: Folks, you can say whatever you want, but I’m not supporting any plan that gets rid of those kinds of choices.

    Two months later, Mark Warner voted for the Affordable Care Act.

    Last year, PolitiFact dubbed, ‘If you like your health care plan, you can keep it’ the “Lie of the year.”

  • Rep. Robert Hurt’s Monthly Video Address

  • Pipeline Project Shows Tom Steyer’s Investment in Terry McAuliffe Was for Naught

    RPV Chairman Pat Mullins issued the following statement:

    “Today’s announcement of a $5 billion natural gas pipeline is great news for Virginia. The project promises to bring jobs to our Commonwealth, help ensure electrical reliability, and help to bring more our country’s domestic resources into the energy market – resources newly made available through technological developments like fracking – to produce lower energy prices for all Virginians.”

    “But it also shows that environmentalist billionaire Tom Steyer’s investment in Terry McAuliffe was for naught. Steyer who spent more than $1.6 million on Terry McAuliffe’s campaign for Governor. He and other radical environmentalists flocked to McAuliffe because the Democrat parroted the right lines about energy, refused to stand up for Southwest Virginia coal jobs, and unlike his Republican opponent, refused to promise to oppose EPA overreach.”

    “Given the Governor’s new-found interest in working with the energy sector, I’m forced to wonder if the environmental movement has a home in the Virginia Democrat party any more.”

  • Chairman Mullins: Apparent Voter Fraud in Fairfax Demands a Full Investigation

    RPV Chairman Pat Mullins issued the following statement:

    “The discovery this week that 17 people in Fairfax County apparently voted twice in the last Presidential election is disturbing. Time and time again we hear that voter fraud is myth, and naysayers argue that those who express concerns about the integrity of our elections have only the worst of intentions. Yet once again we find that voter fraud is real.”

    “Even one instance of fraud is too many. I call on the Fairfax County Commonwealth’s Attorney’s office and Attorney General Mark Herring to investigate these 17 cases, and if multiple votes were cast in the same election, to prosecute the offenders to the fullest extent of the law.”

    “Just weeks ago, Democrats asked for an investigation into alleged fraud in a party nomination contest. Voter fraud is a bipartisan concern. The integrity of our elections is too important to allow even one case of fraud to go undiscovered — or unpunished.”

  • Ed Gillespie’s First Ad!

  • Statement of RPV Chairman Pat Mullins on Aug. 19th Special Election Results

    RPV Chairman Pat Mullins issued the following statement:

    “Congratulations to Senator-elect Ben Chafin on his amazing win tonight in Senate District 38! Ben and his team ran a fantastic campaign, and I look forward to working with Majority Leader Tommy Norment and Speaker Bill Howell to advance our shared conservative values for years to come.”

    “Tonight’s results also mark a major milestone in Virginia history. Due in in no small part to the liberal policies of President Obama and Mark Warner, there is no longer a single coal country Democrat in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Mark Warner and other Democrats long ago abandoned the coal fields. Now, voters have returned the favor.”

    “But tonight also gives the first tangible evidence of a coming Republican wave in November. In both Southwest and Northern Virginia, Republicans have outperformed expectations.  Even in deep blue Arlington County, our Republican team has put up numbers that many would have thought impossible — outperforming even the results of the GOP tidal wave in 2009.”

    “Virginians are tired of the malaise that President Obama, Mark Warner, Terry McAuliffe, Dick Saslaw, and Don McEachin have delivered. And come November, they’re going to make that abundantly clear — again.”

  • VIDEO: Guard the Change?

    During Saturday’s debate, Mark Warner did he best to run from President Obama – and the fact that he voted with Barack Obama 97 percent of the time. Time and again, Warner said that statistic doesn’t reflect his true record — that he’s actually opposed President Obama from time to time.

    But there’s no hiding from Mark Warner’s record of support for Barack Obama.

    * Politifact: “Warner’s presidential support rating, however, is what it is: 97 percent. So we rate the GOP’s statement True.”

    * A Pro-Warner Democrat Super PAC: “The Senator has voted with President Obama over 97% of the time.”

    RPV Chairman Pat Mullins issued the following statement: “Actions speak louder than words. Virginia needs a check on Barack Obama, not Mark Warner’s blank check.”
