Vince Haley for Senate in Virginia's 12th!

The following release is from E.W. Jackson:

“Today I am proud to announce my endorsement of Vince Haley for Virginia Senate in the 12th District. Vince is a man with strong convictions and an unswerving commitment to making Virginia a better place to live, raise a family, find a job or start a business.

As a husband and father of three beautiful children, Vince is committed to ensuring a better future for the families and children of Virginia. At a time when we are tyrannized by an out-of-control federal government, Vince understands that it will be his responsibility as a legislator to protect the citizens he represents.

Today we are faced with major attacks on our First Amendment rights. There was a time when defense of religious liberty was a bi-partisan concern. Now, not only is the First Amendment under vicious assault by Democrats, but far too many Republicans remain silent when they should be defending our freedom.

I have no doubt in my mind that Vince Haley will be a bold and consistent defender of our liberties. In 2006, Vince led an effort to reverse a decision made by the College of William & Mary to remove the cross from its historic Wren Chapel. Vince's leadership initiative – Save the Wren Cross – led to the permanent return of the cross to its rightful place.

Vince Haley has earned my endorsement because I believe that he will be an uncompromising champion not only of our First and Second Amendment rights, but he will also fight for low taxes, limited government, the traditional family, the sanctity of life and fiscal restraint and accountability. Most importantly, Vince Haley is not motivated by selfish ambition, but by service to God, love of country and the desire make Virginia a great place for his family and yours. He will be true to the legacy of our Founding Fathers -Virginians such as Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry and George Washington.

With just under two weeks before the Republican primary, Vince needs your help to win the Republican nomination. Please click here to join me in making the most generous contribution you can afford. If you live in the 12th Senate District (which includes most of western Henrico and western Hanover Counties), please make sure you vote for Vince Haley on Tuesday, June 9th.

I hope you will join me in praying for Vince's victory. May God continue to bless the Commonwealth of Virginia and the United States of America.”

Howell and Stimpson Square Off

The following release is from the Howell for Delegate campaign:

"Delegate Bill Howell highlighted his record of proven, conservative leadership and positive campaign at a candidate’s forum Sunday at the White Oak Volunteer Fire Department. Howell appeared with his opponent and took questions from voters at the forum organized by White Oak residents.

“Today’s candidates forum was a great opportunity for Speaker Howell to share his record of proven, conservative leadership with the voters of House District 28. The Speaker demonstrated his superior command of the issues and longstanding connection to the community, highlighting the work he’s done for the people of Fredericksburg and Stafford as well as his conservative record in Richmond. The Speaker proved that without a doubt he is the most qualified candidate in this race,” said Campaign Manager Thomas Midanek. “Today’s forum was also reflective of the tone of this campaign. The Speaker made his case in a positive and straightforward manner, which stands in stark contrast to the false, negative attacks from our opponent.”

Speaking about the race Midanek added, “It was clear to anyone in attendance today that our campaign has all the enthusiasm and momentum headed into the final two weeks of this campaign. This weekend we passed 30,000 doors knocked and we’re prepared to mobilize our grassroots campaign to turn out the vote on June 9th."

Howell for Delegate campaign passes 20,000 doors knocked

The following is a release from the Howell for Delegate campaign:

FALMOUTH, VA – Delegate Bill Howell announced Friday that his campaign has knocked more than 20,000 doors in House District 28, including 10,000 doors in the last 34 days. The Howell campaign knocked 10,000 doors in the first 45 days of the campaign. Campaign staffers and volunteers passed the 20,000 mark Thursday afternoon.

“As we move closer to Election Day on June 9, our campaign continues to build momentum and support. I am so grateful to all of the volunteers that helped us reach this milestone,” said Delegate Howell. “We are running a grassroots campaign focused on talking directly to voters about my record as a proven, conservative leader who cut $7 billion in proposed spending and defeated $30 billion in proposed tax hikes. The response has been overwhelmingly positive and I look forward to continuing to build momentum over the next seven weeks.”

Speaking about the announcement Campaign Manager Thomas Midanek said, “In low-turnout primary elections, the best way to talk with voters is face to face at the door. We have consistently passed our door knocking goals and the responses from voters are consistently positive. People across this district know that Bill is a proven, conservative leader and his record of cutting spending, defeating tax hikes and standing up against Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion shows that. This is a huge milestone for our campaign.”

Senators Richard Stuart & Bryce Reeves Endorse Bill Howell

The following release is from the Howell for Delegate campaign:

FALMOUTH, VA – Senators Richard Stuart and Bryce Reeves, two of the General Assembly’s leading conservatives, on Friday endorsed Delegate Bill Howell for re-election to the Virginia House of Delegates. Senators Stuart and Reeves both represent parts of the 28th House District. They join a growing list of local elected officials and community leaders supporting Delegate Howell.

“Bill Howell is a proven, conservative leader that I am proud to call a friend and colleague. Bill is known for his steady demeanor, integrity and humility. We work together closely on a number of issues, and I know that Bill always puts the best interests of our region first,” said Senator Richard Stuart. “Bill’s record of cutting $7 billion in proposed spending since 2007, fighting against Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion and protecting the 2nd Amendment rights of Virginians makes him worthy of our vote. I am excited to support him for re-election.”

Speaking about the endorsement Senator Bryce Reeves said, “Before my election four years ago, Bill Howell and the Republican House of Delegates stood as the firewall against the Democrat controlled Senate. After I was elected and with Republicans in control of the Senate, we were able to pass conservative legislation to strengthen the 2nd Amendment rights of Virginians and promote the cause of life in Virginia. When Democrats took control again last year, Bill and the House once again held the line, defeating Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion. Now, with Republicans once again in control of the Senate, we have worked with Speaker Howell’s majority in the House to pass a conservative, balanced budget that spends nearly $1 billion less than the original budget. Whether it’s holding the line against the Democrats or working with Republicans in the Senate, conservatives can count on Bill Howell.”
