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.

Reminder: The Republican primaries will take place at all Fairfax County voting locations on Tuesday, June 12. Polls open at 6:00 AM and close at 7:00 PM.
Three Republican candidates—Nick Freitas, E.W. Jackson, and Corey Stewart—are vying for the Republican nomination to challenge Democrat Senator Tim Kaine in the November general election to be one of Virginia’s two senators in Congress.
Two Republican candidates—incumbent Congresswoman Barbara Comstock and challenger Shak Hill—are seeking the Republican nomination for Congress from Virginia’s 10th Congressional District.
Thomas Oh and Jeff Dove are the only Republicans who are running for Congress in the 8th and 11th Congressional Districts respectively, and thus there is no need for Republican primaries for Congress in those two districts.
The primaries on Tuesday are the way that Fairfax County Republicans can influence who will be the Republican candidates that oppose the Democrats in the general election this fall. Don’t miss this opportunity to cast your ballot for who you think will best represent Fairfax County in Congress.
We still need help! On a related note, we are still seeking volunteers to staff the polling places on Tuesday for the purpose of handing out GOP literature and signing up potential volunteers for Fairfax County Republican Committee support. If you are interested in helping out, please contact your Magisterial District Chairman or call the FCRC office at 703-766-2401.

The Educational Employees’ Supplementary Retirement System of Fairfax County (ERFC) was established July 1, 1973, to provide an independent retirement plan for Fairfax County Public Schools’ personnel as a supplement to the primary benefits they earn and receive separately from the Virginia Retirement System (VRS) and Social Security.
Currently, at age 55 after 30 years of working for FCPS, a retiring employee’s yearly pension amount paid by the VRS comes to about 50% of that person’s average pay based on his/her 5 highest-paid years. Normally, Social Security benefits would equate to around 25% of a person’s income earned during those 30 years of County employment at “full retirement” age, now 67 for new FCPS hires. The ERFC supplement was designed to make up for losing that 25% by retiring prior to age 67. In essence, retiring FCPS employees receive 75% of their pay at age 55. However, the County now…
Just when you think the Democrat Party has hit rock bottom, they begin to drill deeper. The latest successful effort at self-flagellation is a slanderous and bizarre TV advertisement by the Democrat candidate for Congress from the 10th Congressional District of Virginia, Dan Helmer. In his political ad, Helmer narrates that the biggest threat to our democracy since Osama Bin Laden is President Trump. He really said that! See for yourself at link below.
This Democrat touts himself as an Iraq combat veteran—thank you for your service, Sir—but it appears he may have suffered a blow to the head or some other injury that has distorted his judgment. First off, we do not live in a Democracy; we live in a constitutional Republic. Putting that aside, wasn’t it Barack Hussein Obama who unconstitutionally opened the border to illegal aliens via his Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents ( DAPA) programs? Wasn’t it Obama who…

Jeff Dove, Republican candidate for VA-11 just published an excellent OP-ED in The Republican Standard about school safety and issue that every Fairfax County family can related to:
Our nation is facing a disease that must be addressed swiftly and judiciously. As a father of a young daughter, it is heart-wrenching every time a new school shooting or a mass shooting occurs. Parents, children, and Americans should not have to worry about their safety or the safety of a loved one in their daily routine. Our leaders have failed us as Americans, and they have also failed their mission to protect their constituents.
This is not the time for partisan politics, political games, or electioneering. It is time for real …

Along with those who signed up to help the Republican Party, hundreds of …
The Medicaid Expansion fight is not over.
According to news reports, on Tuesday May 29 the Senate Finance Committee may adopt a budget proposal that could be debated and potentially amended on the floor to expand Medicaid with federal money. If those federal subsidies for Medicaid are eliminated in the future, Virginia will be totally responsible for billions in Medicaid costs.
On May 22, the Richmond Times Dispatch reported that “Norment said the additional delay is necessary to
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Fairfax County will no longer “honor any requests to detain individuals subject to an administrative detention request unless there is a corresponding lawfully issued criminal detainer.”
The Chairwoman of the County Board of Supervisors and the Democrat Party agree with that decision. Starting today, criminal illegal…
