National Committeewoman Patricia Bast “Patti” Lyman
After 9/11, Patti entered immigration law to specialize in asylum for persecuted Christians escaping Islamic countries. Convinced that illegal immigration will result in Republican values and fundamental rights being permanently outvoted, Patti speaks frequently to Republican groups about the importance of supporting President Trump’s immigration policies. Patti strongly advocated for President Trump in 2016, was a surrogate speaker in Virginia’s 2017/2018 gubernatorial and US Senate races, and served on the Credentials Committee to elect a pro-Trump, grassrooots Chairman to Virginia’s largest Republican Committee.
Patti holds a B.S. in Commerce from the University of Virginia, an MBA in Finance from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School, and a Juris Doctor from Regent University School of Law. She is admitted to the bars of the Virginia Supreme Court and federal courts from U.S. District Court up to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Patti and her husband of 30 years, Frank, live in Fairfax with their multiple cats and are blessed to enjoy their many godchildren, official and otherwise.
