Va. GOP Statement on Primary

Republican Party of Virginia Chairman John Hager released the following statement in reaction to the results of Virginia's presidential primaries:

I want to congratulate Senator McCain on his victory today in Virginia's presidential primary. Governor Huckabee and Congressman Paul should also be proud of their hard-fought campaigns here in the Commonwealth.

"After watching each of the candidates from both parties campaign throughout Virginia, it is clear that voters will face a clear choice this November.

The Republican candidates have shown that they possess the character and leadership experience required to win the War on Terror, reduce government spending, support a culture of life, and move America forward.

"In stark contrast, Barack Obama - America's most liberal U.S. Senator - lacks the experience necessary to be Commander-in-Chief. Despite his rhetoric, he offers only the same old liberal policies of higher taxes, bigger government, and retreat in the War on Terror.

Virginians have rejected these policies in the past, and I'm confident they will do so again in November."

Virginia's Republican primary is winner-take-all and will bind its Delegates on the first round of balloting at the Republican National Convention. For more information on becoming a Delegate to the National or State Conventions, visit our website,
