Denver Riggleman wins special convention to secure retiring Congressman Tom Garrett’s Republican nomination.
Nelson County, VA – Today, members of the Fifth District Republican Committee convened to vote on a new Republican nominee to replace retiring Congressman Tom Garrett on the ballot in November. Denver Riggleman secured a majority of the votes, and will now campaign against and defeat Leslie Cockburn.
“There is no doubt in my mind that Denver Riggleman is the right man for the job this year,” said RPV Chairman John Whitbeck. “Denver has amazing leadership skills that will no doubt propel him to victory in November. Republicans must not forget that we are up against a toxic anti-Semite in Leslie Cockburn. A Republican victory in the Fifth District is vital to ensuring that racism and bigotry have no platform in the United States’ Congress.”
