• Excellent news! Grassroots Challenge goes VIRAL!!

    Dear Virginia Republicans,

    100KEmail Therm_4-2It’s happening!!  Thanks to YOUR help + encouragement:

    Our Elected Officials are taking the Challenge.

    Our Grassroots Activists are taking the Challenge.

    And EVEN our Candidates are taking the Challenge!!

    Sturtevant, Hollingshead, Obenshain, Black, O’Quinn, and Minchew all showed tremendous leadership by stepping up in the middle of their own campaigns and committing their precious resources to take the Challenge.  And the list goes on and on…

    If by chance you haven’t taken the Challenge yet – we need your leadership too.

    Status update:  We beat our internal goal of $25,000 towards our Grassroots Challenge by the end of March. That means we are more than 50% on the way to our original goal with TWO MONTHS TO GO.  More importantly, we shattered the record for the most online contributions to the RPV by nearly 300%!!!  We have a lot more work to do to get us to $200,000 – but we are making tremendous progress.  Click here to take the Challenge!

    Don’t forget, what started as a $100,000 Challenge has become a $200,000 Challenge when 2nd District Chairman Curtis Colgate stepped up to match our original match.

    Donate $10, $50 or $100 and help RPV turn Virginia Red!

    On To Victory!

  • RPV Chairman John Whitbeck Names  Technology Entrepreneur Pete Snyder as  Finance Committee Chairman

    All corners of the Party hail addition of Snyder to RPV Leadership Team

    Republican Party of Virginia Chairman John Whitbeck announced this past weekend at the State Central Committee quarterly meeting that Pete Snyder, a successful technology entrepreneur and former candidate for Lt. Governor, has agreed to serve RPV as their Finance Chairman.

    Whitbeck noted, “Every corner of the Republican Party supports Pete Snyder in this role, from the grassroots to the business community.  Everyone in our party knows Pete and we all know that he’s not afraid to take on challenging tasks and doesn’t shy away from hard work.  I am thrilled that we will have Pete’s leadership, financial prowess and operational know-how to help us build a better, stronger party.”

    Snyder, CEO of Alexandria-based Disruptor Capital stated, “Times have changed and the Republican Party of Virginia is in need of a new business model. I look forward to working closely with Chairman Whitbeck, elected officials and grassroots activists across the Commonwealth to kick-start a new chapter in the history of our Party and our cause, and get us back on a winning streak.”

    Snyder plans on serving in the role until the end of the year and is committed to fostering a farm-team of new talent to help guide the party’s long-term financial stability and independence.

    Snyder added, “For the past two years, we lost two high profile, yet very winnable races by razor thin margins.  Our candidates shocked the entire country with their performance, but we all know that if our party was stronger, on better financial footing and united in our focus of beating Democrats, that just might have made up the difference. By focusing on the future and working together we can win in 2015, 2016 and without a doubt 2017.”

    RPV will be unveiling a number of new programs and campaigns in the run up to the these critical elections.
