FROM CHAIRMAN DOUG SMITH
Nov. 6, 2019
A big CONGRATULATIONS to our RARC candidates on their victories yesterday:
RONNIE CAMPBELL - re-elected as our State Delegate
JARED MOON - our County Commonwealth's Attorney
BETTY TROVATO - our County Treasurer
BOB DAY - South River's County Supervisor
Thank you to all the Republicans who volunteered throughout this campaign season to get this important job done. What you have done for our community will never be forgotten!
Unfortunately, in our state-wide elections, the Democratics won leadership majorities in our Senate and House. With a Democratic executive branch, Virginia is controlled by one political party. This fact must be kept in the forefront of all of our minds, and we will need to be even more diligent in observance of what our government does, as well as educating our communities on what our government does and encouraging The People to maintain control over their governance. Always remember: our government's primary duty is to represent us, not outside or personal or political interests.
Looking ahead, we have another big election year facing us - the re-election of President Donald Trump and Del. Ben Cline, and the replacement of Senator Mark Warner with a Republican! We all deserve a rest for now - but a short one! We have another big job facing us. Again, thanks for all your hard work this year!

Tweet (10/25/2019) from Sean Davis, co-founder of The Federalist:
“Encrypted text messages show that @MarkWarner secretly colluded with a registered foreign agent for Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov. Warner has refused to explain why he was coordinating with a Russian agent who was also repping Christopher Steele.” Sen. Warner: Virginians deserve an HONEST explanation!
