Tuesday is Primary Day in the 7th Congressional District! We encourage you to learn about the candidates and exercise your right to vote. The winner is likely to be your next congressman, since there is no other challenger.
America has been trending toward becoming a more powerful, centralized government for decades. The evidence is all around us--Obamacare, IRS scrutiny and other federal intrusion into almost all aspects of our lives. As government increases its power, the power of the citizens diminishes. We are looking for a candidate who will reverse the big government trend and move us back to self-governance.
The open primary for the 7th Congressional District on June 10th is another opportunity to select a representative whom we believe will challenge the status quo in DC and work to limit government's reach. The incumbent is 6-term Congressman Eric Cantor. He is being challenged by a new entrant into politics, Dr. David Brat, an ethics and economics professor at Randolph Macon College.
We encourage you to learn about these candidates and select the one who most closely aligns with our Tea Party principles.
Primary voter turnout is notoriously low! Your vote is critically important!
Polls are open Tuesday from 6am to 7pm!
STOP IMMINENT MEDICAID EXPANSION PLANS! ACT NOW!
Trusted sources tell us that Medicaid expansion, the "handmaiden of Obamacare", is about to become a done deal! One of the driving forces behind Medicaid expansion (besides McAuliffe) is State Senator John Watkins!
EMAIL & CALL WATKINS NOW & tell him NOT to sponsor or sign Medicaid expansion! Contact info here.
Take Action NOW to Protect Your Voting Rights!
This one came out of NOWHERE, but you MUST TAKE ACTION NOW!
There is legislation being proposed in DC to allow Attorney General Eric Holder to interfere in state elections! Obviously, we cannot let this happen!
Bottom Line: Liberals are twisting arms of Republicans to pass this dangerous legislation (HR 3899, S 1945). Congressman Eric Cantor is specifically being pressured. If passed, your voting rights would be in the hands of Attorney General Holder! We must tell Eric Cantor to stop this bill!
ACTION ITEM: You can read more about this alarming bill here.
Email Eric Cantor and tell him to protect your voting rights by voting NO on HR 3899!! Click here!
