With over 200 people in attendance, there was excitement and refreshing attitude towards the future of Virginia at the recent Gubernatorial Forum held at Atlas 42 in Glen Allen, VA. Men, women and young adults showing off every kind of PPE, were engaged in vigorous political conversation discussing ways to bring Virginia back to all its glory.
There was an eagerness about the diverse field of candidates not only in the governor’s race but also in the Lieutenant Governor’s race and the Attorney General’s race. Several candidates in the LG and AG races were present sharing their vision for Virginia’s future.
Our co-host, Victoria Cobb of The Family Foundation, stressed the importance of working together to ensure we take back the Governor’s mansion so that we can tackle the economic and cultural challenges caused by the pandemic and ineffectual governance over the past several years in Richmond.
The candidates shared their personal stories and how they came to the decision to run for Virginia’s highest political office. All of them answered great questions from the crowd.
For way too long, the ruling elites have decided who is essential and who is not. We, as conservatives, believe every life is essential and we will fight to ensure each and every Virginian is given the opportunity to achieve their dreams. We must send this message loudly and clearly all across this great Commonwealth.
We want to thank our generous sponsors. In partnership with the Family Foundation, we will be using their donations to launch a strong voter registration effort. Something that is greatly needed by Republicans. Unfortunately, we can no longer rely on our base to get conservatives elected. The demographic changes over the past decade have made that “campaign plan” obsolete. We must reach out to conservatives who are either not registered to vote or haven’t voted for the past several election cycles. The data shows that these people exist.
This voter registration effort will not be easy. It will take tremendous resources and resolve. We ask that you contribute to this voter registration effort. It will take each and every one of us to achieve the goal of advancing freedom for businesses, helping parents provide their children a quality education, and promoting equal opportunity for all Virginians.
We thank you for your past support and look forward to partnering with you in the future!
