The past 10 days have been the most exciting yet as our message and ground game continue to grow exponentially by the day!

One of the most exciting days for Virginia Conservatives took place just last weekend in Fauquier County at the Liberty Farm Festival right here in our district where leaders throughout the commonwealth gathered to tout their respective messages of small government and leading this nation in a new direction. Our next Vice-President Mike Pence even stopped by declaring that the Presidential race is in a dead heat both nationally, and in Virginia!

Aside from this, my opponent is appearing to switch gears on her approach by taking a note from our platform issue of bringing back jobs and boosting the economy. Suddenly, she appears to realize that free-internet is not the solution that we need. While we are happy to educate her campaign on the needs of the 5th district, it is imperative that we do not elect someone who is so out of touch with the needs of Virginia and specifically, our district.
