NEW VIDEO: Rep. Luria Upholds Oath, Kiggans Doubts Biden Election Win

by Democratic Party of Virginia

Richmond, VA – Today, on the morning of the last hearing of the January 6th Commission, the Democratic Party of Virginia released a new video comparing audio of Representative Elaine Luria to “Big Lie” conspiracy theorist Jen Kiggans. 

When asked if she denies Joe Biden won the 2020 Presidential election, Kiggans wouldn’t say if Biden won. In the next clip, Rep. Luria, a key member of the Jan. 6 Commission, reflects on the horrors of those seeking to overturn a free and fair election and recommits herself to the oath she took to serve and protect the United States.


REPORTER: “I asked her whether she denies Joe Biden won the 2020 presidential election.”

KIGGANS: “I’ll say this, Joe Biden lives in the White House and I wish he didn’t.”


LURIA: “Like all of us, I watched with horror as our Capitol was overrun on January 6 by those seeking to overturn a free and fair election.

As a 20-year Navy veteran, I swore an oath multiple times through my career to support and defend our constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic.

As Members of Congress, we swear the same oath. We swear this oath not as a member of a political party, but as Americans.”

One thing is absolutely clear: Jen Kiggans is a wishy-washy political opportunist who will do or say anything to get elected.

She’s embraced false election conspiracy theories and was one of only four state Senators who voted for a $70 million taxpayer dollars audit of the 2020 election. She even repeatedly refused to say who won the 2020 presidential election, supported a slew of “election integrity” bills that were aimed at restricting the right to vote, and refused to censure conspiracy theorist Amanda Chase for saying the Capitol insurrectionists were "patriots."

“The differences in this election couldn’t be more clear,” said DPVA Spokesperson Gianni Snidle. “You have Jen Kiggans, whose political ambitions come before anything — even if that means she has to undermine America’s democracy. On the other side is Rep. Elaine Luria, who took an oath to defend our Constitution and is working every day to uphold it.”
