• Virginia Republicans Choose Primary for 2017 Statewide Nomination Contests

    The State Central Committee of the Republican Party of Virginia on Saturday selected a primary as the method of nomination for Governor, Lt. Governor, and Attorney General.

    RPV Chairman John Whitbeck issued the following statement:

    “This will be the first primary to nominate our state-level candidates since 2005,” said Virginia GOP Chairman John Whitbeck.  “Our 2016 presidential primary was the highest turnout in the history of Virginia for either party.  Enthusiasm for Republican candidates is at an all-time high and we expect this to continue in 2017.”

    “The slate of candidates running state-wide in our Party next year as a whole has never been better.  The primary will allow our candidates to expand our party’s outreach as they campaign, as well as build our ground-game and test out our general election strategy.  I expect our Party will be united and ready to win in 2017.”
