• 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.”

  • 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.”

  • Mike Hymes: “I do believe you ought to register handguns”

    Democrat Mike Hymes has made a lot of noise about firearms in the past few days. When Republicans questioned his views on guns, he issued an indignant press release, in which his campaign wrote:

    “Mike Hymes is on the record with both the National Rifle Association and the Virginia Citizens Defense League in opposing any form of gun registration or any type of gun ban.

    But what does the candidate actually think?

    Mike Hymes On the Second Amendment

    Transcript:

    Hymes: “I
    don’t think you ought to be able to sell somebody an AR-15,
    either. Because, law enforcement should have those kinds.  We’ve
    had to give our law enforcement in Tazewell County AR-15s because,
    you know, they go up a holler, some guy’s got one. He’s bought
    one. Virginia’s gun laws are pretty doggone liberal.”

    “I do believe you ought to register
    handguns, we ought to have something. If they had not let that
    assault rifle ban drop, then that probably  wouldn’t be a problem.
    So that’s kinda where I am.”



    RPV Chairman Pat Mullins issued the following statement:

    “I
    could say something snarky here, but this is too serious. Once again, a
    Democrat is trying to hide his anti-Second Amendment views. Fake right,
    run left.”

    “I don’t think I’ve ever seen a candidate do
    something quite this two-faced. Mike Hymes is telling the world that
    he’s pro-Second Amendment and against gun registration, but as soon as
    the TV cameras are off, he tells people the exact opposite.”

    “Folks it’s simple: if you support the Second Amendment, if you support liberty, vote for Ben Chafin.”

  • Chairman Mullins: Ed Gillespie Demolishes Mark Warner in First Debate

    — ‘After this performance, I doubt we’ll see Mark Warner agree to any more meetings’



    RPV Chairman Pat Mullins issued the following statement:

    “There’s
    no two ways about it: Ed Gillespie absolutely demolished Mark Warner
    during today’s debate. After this, I strongly doubt Warner will even
    agree to another debate. One more outing like this one would end the
    race.”

    “Mark Warner simply could not, can not, and will not
    answer for his record. Warner is stuck between keeping his radical
    liberal base happy and not alienating the vast majority of Virginia
    voters. That’s why we get this ridiculous theme of how he doesn’t like
    Obamacare, but voted for it anyway.”

    “That’s why we get
    performances like today’s, where Warner attempts to walk the razor’s
    edge between renouncing his support for Obama and Obama policies, and
    embracing them just enough to keep the base happy.”

    “But it’s a
    losing battle. The more people learn about Mark Warner’s real record,
    the less they like it. And that’s why he’s about to return to the
    private sector.”

  • Chairman Mullins: Halbig Decision Confirms Words Have Meanings, Despite Wishes to the Contrary

    RPV Chairman Pat Mullins issued the following statement:

    “Words
    having meanings. Wishing that words didn’t mean what they say isn’t a
    good foundation for legislation or jurisprudence  – something our new
    ‘modern Attorney General’ Mark Herring has failed to understand.”

    “Obamacare
    is broken, and it has been from the very start. No amount of tinkering
    or patching can repair it. Obamacare must be scrapped, and replaced with
    a true market-based set of reforms that puts people, not government, in
    charge of their health care.”

    “Said simply, this is what happens when we have to pass a bill to find out what’s in it. And it’s not pretty.”

  • Statement of RPV Chairman Pat Mullins on the Life and Legacy of Leo Wardrup

    RPV Chairman Pat Mullins issued the following statement: 

    “Today,
    all of Virginia mourns the loss of Delegate Leo Wardrup. As his
    colleagues, friends and, family gather to remember his life and legacy,
    we are reminded of his unique and towering legacy – a passion for
    politics, but always with the wisdom not to take it too seriously.”

    “As others have
    noted, Leo Wardrup was one of a kind, but our Commonwealth would do well
    to have a thousand more like him. He is sorely missed.”

  • Can the FBI Keep Up With Terry McAuliffe’s Appointments?

    RPV Chairman Pat Mullins issued the following statement: 

     

    “I’m
    starting to wonder if the FBI is going to be able to keep up with all
    these appointments that Terry McAuliffe is making from the General
    Assembly.”

     

    “Announcing
    these two appointments on the biggest news-dump day of the year make
    perfect sense, given the outcry that I’m sure is going to follow from
    our Democratic friends. Indeed, if Democrats stay true to form, I expect
    the statements of denunciation and outrage to start flowing
    immediately.” 


    “The Puckett precedent is clear: resigning General Assembly to take a
    government job — or even to consider taking a government job —  is
    worthy of empaneling a grand jury.”


    “And on the off chance that the outrage from Democrats doesn’t
    materialize, then that says all you need to know about the ‘outrage’
    over Phil Puckett: Phil Puckett made Terry McAuliffe look stupid, and
    these other Democrats didn’t.”
