• Chairman Mullins: New Warner Ad Latest Attempt to Hide His Liberal Record

    RPV Chairman Pat Mullins made the following statement:

    “Once again, Mark Warner has
    put on his ‘conservative’ Halloween Costume, complete with a Ronald Reagan mask.
    For the last five years,
    he’s voted with Barack Obama
    97 percent of the time and
    advocated for policies that
    will put more Virginians out
    of work. He won’t even take
    a position on the new power
    plant rules from the EPA.
    But Virginia voters know a
    vote for Mark Warner is a
    vote for Barack Obama’s
    anti-job agenda, plain and
    simple.”

  • Statement of RPV Chairman Pat Mullins on 2014 Convention Results

    RPV Chairman Pat Mullins issued the following statement:

    “Congratulations
    to Ed Gillespie on his victory today at the 2014 RPV Convention. Ed and
    his team ran a great campaign, and I’ll be proud to join them on the
    campaign trail along with candidates for the House of Representatives.”

    “Thanks
    also to our three other candidates and teams who worked so hard.
    Standing for public office is never easy, but this year our party had
    four qualified people who put themselves out there for the betterment of
    our Commonwealth and our country. All would have made a U.S. Senator
    far superior to Mark Warner.”

    “Thanks also to the thousands of
    Republicans who participated in the process, and thanks to the City of
    Roanoke of the Sixth Congressional District for being such great hosts.

    “Republicans
    have emerged from this convention unified, with one purpose – taking
    back the U.S. Senate, and returning Mark Warner to the private sector.”

    “One team, one fight. Mark Warner is scared. And he has good reason to be.”

  • Chairman Mullins: New Obama Global Warming Rules Are A Disaster for Virginia

    Democrat Mark Warner is trying to walk a tightrope between Southwest Virgina votes and his radical environmentalist base

    RPV Chairman Pat Mullins issued the following statement:

    “The EPA’s new rules to limit carbon dioxide emissions from coal fired power plants will be nothing short of a disaster for Virginia. A typical family of four would spend an additional $1,200 per year on energy under these rules. Nationally, these rules will destroy more than 200,000 jobs each year over the next 15 years, at a time when our economy is already having trouble creating enough jobs.”

    “Virginia’s coal fields are already in trouble. This will reduce aggregate demand for coal even more. More coal and coal related jobs will disappear, doing more damage to an already tough economy in Southwest Virginia.”

    “Mark Warner says he can’t make up his mind about these new rules until he sees 120 days worth of public comments. If Mark Warner really represented Virginia, and not Barack Obama with whom he votes 97 percent of the time, he’d know these rules are bad news for the Commonwealth. Instead, he’s trying to walk a tightrope between the votes he needs in Southwest Virginia and the radical environmentalists who make up his base.”

    “We can stop these rules, but we need a Republican U.S. Senate, working with a Republican House of Representatives to make it happen. And that process begins with sending Mark Warner back to the private sector this November.”

  • Chairman Mullins: Mark Warner Must Call for Secretary Shinseki’s Resignation Immediately

    Anything else would be unjust

    RPV Chairman Pat Mullins issued the following statement:

    “It seems like every day we hear another horror story from the Veteran’s Administration. Nearly two dozen veterans have already died, victims of a bureaucracy that cares more about pushing paper than caring for our combat wounded.”

    “Barack Obama has failed to lead on this issue. Secretary Shinseki has failed to lead on this issue. Thus far, no one has lost their job at the VA, even though veterans have lost their lives. Mark Warner should join groups like the American Legion in calling for Secretary Shinseki to resign. Every day he fails to seek accountability for this travesty is another betrayal of our veterans.”

  • Chairman Mullins: In Veto of Ethics Bill, Governor McAuliffe Lives Down to His Reputation

    Presented with a bipartisan chance to prove he’s more than a Democrat bag man, McAuliffe fails

    RPV Chairman Pat Mullins issued the following statement:

    “Truly bipartisan, common-sense legislation is a rare thing in Richmond. House Bill 1212 and Senate Bill 650 were just that. Under this bill, companies or individuals seeking grants from the Governor’s Opportunity Fund would have been barred from giving gifts or campaign donations to the Governor. They both passed unanimously, and the Governor’s efforts to weaken them were flatly rejected/”

    “These bills gave Terry McAuliffe a chance to rise above his reputation as a Democrat bag man, concerned with nothing more than raking in more donor dollars. He failed. This veto is just further evidence that Terry remains exactly what he’s always been – a fundraiser, first and foremost. Virginia deserves better.”

  • Chairman Mullins: Former Lt. Governor John Hager Will Lead RPV Chairman’s Advisory Council

    RPV Chairman Pat Mullins issued the following statement:

    “Virginia’s economy is at a crossroads. Will we abandon our decades-long, pragmatic vision of the intersection between business and government, or will we follow the lead of Democrats and remake Virginia into a Washington-style bureaucratic nightmare, where we regulate first and ask questions later?”

    “Lt. Governor John Hager has stood at the intersection of business and government for decades, and during that time has been a constant advocate for the common-sense approach to government that has made Virginia a top state for business for decades.”

    “That’s why I’m pleased to announce that Lt. Governor Hager will be leading the Chairman’s Advisory Council – our effort to connect with key members of the business community in an effort to sharpen our message on key business issues and help craft new, innovative policy solutions that will help us keep Virginia a top state for business for decades to come.”

    “With liberal, big-government Democrats in charge of the Executive Branch, it’s more important than ever that Republicans and other pro-business groups work together to ensure that The Virginia Way isn’t lost in favor of Washington, D.C.-style taxes and regulations that will stifle job creation and hurt our economy.”

    “Thank you, Lt. Governor Hager, for your work on this vital project. We couldn’t ask for a better person to lead this project.”

  • A Pattern Develops: Yet ANOTHER Terry McAuliffe Donor Pleads Guilty to Campaign Finance Related Charges

    Second verse, same as the first.

    Sant Sing Chatwal, a major fundraiser to Hillary Clinton’s 2008 campaign and a donor to Terry McAuliffe’s 2013 run for Governor, plead guilty today to witness tampering and conspiracy to evade campaign finance laws.

    McAuliffe was the chairman of Hillary Clinton’s 2008 campaign.

    From ABC News:
    “Sant Singh Chatwal was accused of working with an unidentified informant to use straw donors to make contributions to three unnamed political candidates. He also was accused of trying to persuade a witness to not speak to the FBI.”

    According to ABC, Chatwal raised at least $100,000 for the 2008 Clinton campaign. He is the second Clinton/McAuliffe fundraising figure to plead guilty to charges related to violations of campaign finance rules.

    Previously, Jeffrey Thompson plead guilty to campaign finance related charges. Terry McAuliffe famously ran from reporters rather than answer questions about his dealings with Thompson.

    RPV Chairman Pat Mullins issued the following statement:

    “This is starting to be a very disturbing pattern: major donors and fundraisers for Hillary Clinton’s 2008 campaign plead guilty to campaign finance related crimes. Then we find out that these people were donors to Terry McAuliffe as well.”

    “What kind of operation was Terry running for Hillary in 2008? How much did he know about these illegal donation schemes? Did he know about his when he took money from Sant Singh Chatwal? Will he return or donate the money?”

    “Far and away the most fundamental question that needs to be answered right now is ‘What did Terry McAuliffe know, and when did he know it? ‘”

  • Mark Warner: Still All In for a Carbon Tax

    — In new video, Warner laments fact that U.S. didn’t join job-killing Kyoto Protocol —
    – Complains that U.S. natural gas is slowing adoption of ‘clean energy’ –

    This video is yet another example of Mark Warner’s history of saying one thing while he’s in front of the TV cameras, and another when he thinks he’s in front of a friendly audience.

    In this one clip, Mark Warner manages to reiterate his support for a job-killing carbon tax that would make energy more expensive and hurt an already suffering Southwest Virginia coal industry.

    He also laments the fact that the U.S. didn’t sign on to Al Gore’s job killing Kyoto Protocol – despite the fact that the U.S. Senate UNANIMOUSLY rejected the agreement.

    And not to be outdone, he notes that natural gas, which has revolutionized the U.S. economy, creating jobs, and increasing our country’s energy security, has slowed the adoption of his preferred “clean energy” technologies.

    RPV Chairman Pat Mullins issued the following statement:

    “Every time Mark Warner has to face the voters, he runs back to the middle and puts on his ‘moderate’ mask. But the truth is that Warner is far more concerned about polar bears than he is about jobs in Southwest Virginia. He’d rather jack up our power bills and force us to use windmills rather than burn the clean, efficient natural gas we can extract right here in the U.S.”

    “He lied to us about Obamacare. And after watching this video, why should anyone in Southwest Virginia believe he’s going to fight for coal jobs or lower power bills. Trust is earned, and Mark Warner hasn’t earned ours.”

  • Joining the Fight: Ken Cuccinelli Steps Up Again, Donates $25,000 to RPV

    Obamacare has been a disaster for Virginia.

    Countless lost hours in part-time paychecks, lost doctors, and higher insurance premiums are all directly attributable to Mark Warner’s dubious Christmas Eve vote.

    If not for Mark Warner’s decision to break his promise to Virginia voters, Senate Democrats would have no reason to threaten to shut down Virginia’s government. Teachers, firefighters, first responders and other public servants wouldn’t be stuck in limbo, wondering if their paychecks are going to cut off on June 30.

    RPV Chairman Pat Mullins issued the following statement:

    “Every single Republican in Virginia understands how important this election is. Without a Republican-controlled U.S. Senate, we will never be able to undo the damage that Barack Obama, Mark Warner, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi have done to this country. The road to a GOP-run U.S. Senate runs squarely through Virginia.”

    “Ken Cuccinelli knows a thing or two about a fight for principle. And that is why we are so grateful that Ken continues to stay in the fight and lead by example. Ken knows that our party’s number one priority needs to be retiring Mark Warner. And when called, Ken stepped up our party yet again.”

    “Thank you, Ken, for all that you’ve done for Virginia, and thank you for staying in the fight!”
