RPV Chairman John Whitbeck issued the following statement:
“Congressman Bob Goodlatte has been a strong voice for the Commonwealth of Virginia and the people of the 6th District. Throughout his service, Bob has been a nationwide leader on issues such as agriculture, immigration, and for a balanced budget initiative similar to legislation the Commonwealth has on its books.
During his service in the House of Representatives, Bob has served as Chairman of the House Committee on Agriculture, fighting for one of the most important economic drivers in his district, and as Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, standing up for American’s constitutional freedoms and liberties.
We sincerely thank Bob for his service, and he will be sorely missed in Virginia politics. It has been a privilege to work with Bob, fighting for our conservative values.”
