VA-02 Republicans in Disarray: Primary Opponent Refuses to Endorse Jen Kiggans

by Democratic Party of Virginia

Richmond, VA – It’s trouble in paradise for Republicans in Virginia’s 2nd District.

After a chaotic race to the right and disappointing turnout in the Republican primary, “America First” candidate Jarome Bell refused to endorse craven political opportunist Jen Kiggans for Congress. In a Facebook post, Jarome Bell signaled to his followers that he was not a part of the “Go Along Get Along Gang” refusing to endorse her campaign.

See below Jarome Bell’s warning about Jen Kiggans to Coastal Virginians. 

This spells trouble for Kiggans in the upcoming election after VA-02 Republicans “failed to match the party sky-high expectations” in the primary with low voter turnout.

Kiggans already disqualified herself to most Coastal Virginians when she took a hard right turn and aligned herself with ultra-MAGA conspiracy theories and anti-reproductive health care policies to secure the nomination, and now she can’t even coalesce her base. 

“Jen Kiggans has a serious problem on her hands,” said DPVA Spokesperson Gianni Snidle. “She’s failed to win the backing of her primary opponent and is struggling with a lack of enthusiasm with her base. Coastal Virginians see Jen Kiggans for who she really is: a spineless political opportunist.”
