Virginia GOP Candidates Double Down on Support For Trump

by Democratic Party of Virginia

This past Saturday, nearly all of the Republican candidates for statewide office in 2017 appeared at the Liberty Farm Festival to court primary voters and stump for the Trump-Pence ticket; see for yourself:

Gubernatorial Candidates:

Ed Gillespie [1:35-1:55, 4:05-4:14]: "The choice between it [the Clinton/Kaine ticket] and the Trump/Pence ticket could not be more clear. And the stakes could not be higher ... To put assaults to our 1st and 2nd amendment rights and undermining efforts to expand Obamacare by electing the Trump/Pence ticket in November!"

Rob Wittman: "Make sure we win elections, elect into office Donald J. Trump and Mike Pence. They are fantastic individuals and good common sense conservatives."

Corey Stewart: "No other presidential candidate has been able to attract blue-collar voters ... I am running for governor next year, but that is secondary. We gotta take our country back, nothing else matter between now and November 8th."

Congressional Candidate:

Tom Garrett (Candidate for VA-05): "I am for each and every one of you to join me and working hard through November the 8th to ensure that Donald Trump is the next president of the United States and that we have a president and a Commander in Chief who is worthy of the title."
