This month, the Republican Party of Virginia proudly joins our fellow citizens to celebrate the rich history and enduring contributions of Black Americans to our great Commonwealth and nation. Black History Month is a time to celebrate and honor the accomplishments and legacies of so many African-Americans, and it is an opportunity to reflect on the struggles of so many throughout our state’s history.
In our pursuit of a more perfect union, our party will continue to stand for personal freedom as a beacon of light that signals that our beloved Commonwealth is open and welcoming to all.
Speaker-designee Todd Gilbert issued the following statement on Friday:
“The recount has reaffirmed what Election Day and canvass already told us — that Karen Greenhalgh is the Delegate-elect from the 85th district, and Republicans will retake the majority in the House of Delegates.
“Now that the majority is official, we can move forward with a timely transition as to be prepared to work on day one.”
The Republican Party of Virginia (RPV) today announced it has filed a legal action against the Virginia State Board of Elections (SBE) and the Virginia Department of Elections seeking declaratory and injunctive relief based upon the invalid Declaration of Candidacy filed by Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe that would result in McAuliffe’s disqualification from appearing on any general election ballot.
Terry McAuliffe will make Virginia less safe.
He did it once when his hand-picked parole board members let violent criminals back on our streets and when he oversaw a 43% increase in Virginia’s murder rate, and now the murder rate in Virginia is the highest in 20 years.

The Republican Party of Virginia could not be happier with how smoothly and efficiently our convention was run today. I would like to thank the campaigns, their staff, and our countless volunteers for making this day a successful one. It is a promising sign of things to come that so many Republicans from across Virginia came out in record numbers and supported their candidates at the grassroots level.
A note from Fairfax GOP Chairman Steve Knotts: “Fellow Republicans, please take a moment to read this important update from Virginia GOP Chairman Richard L. Anderson, Republican National Committeewoman Patti Lyman and Republican National Committeeman Morton C. Blackwell. Virginia Republicans are fortunate to have such principled conservative leaders who forthrightly stand with President Donald J. Trump and his agenda for continued national greatness.”
At least 1,400 voters who applied for absentee ballots received two ballots. “We knew the Democrats many last-minute changes to our election law would make our elections less secure, but no one could imagine voters receiving two ballots,” said Rich Anderson, Chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia.
Over 400 voters in central Virginia – 300 in Richmond and 100 in Henrico – received two ballots.
Under cover of darkness on Thursday night, the violent wave of crime that has infected Richmond for months struck again with a violent, cowardly, and unprovoked attack on the state headquarters of the Republican Party of Virginia (RPV). In prior months, these violent attacks on families and businesses in Virginia’s capital city have gone unchecked by Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney and Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, whose neglect enabled last night’s attack
