The long Republican primary season—with its inherent airing of political differences among Republicans—is over. The time has now come for all Republicans to unite behind our nominees and work vigorously to help them defeat the Democrats in November’s general election. Fairfax County Republican Committee must focus unflagging energy on accomplishing that mission over the next five months.
