In the 2020 General Assembly Session, Liberals in Virginia have already passed bills to increase taxes by BILLIONS of dollars, increase minimum wage, provide driver's license to illegal immigrants, severely restrict our 2nd amendment rights, allow abortion-on-demand and much more. Republicans are committed to eliminating unnecessary government regulations and reducing burdensome bureaucracy, while working to keep taxes low and more money in your pocket.
As Republicans, we strongly believe that law abiding citizens should be able to protect their families and defend their homes.
Virginia Republicans opted for a State Convention this year for the purposes of nominating our candidate for President and electing delegates to the Republican National Convention. Local GOP committees, like the Isle of Wight Republican Committee, will host local "Mass Meetings" and each Congressional District will host a district-wide convention where district level delegates are elected to the RNC convention.
After the RNC convention where Republicans from across the nation will gather to nominate our candidate for President, our focus turns to ensuring a REPUBLICAN VICTORY in November 2020.
The Isle of Wight County Republican Party of Virginia meets monthly in Smithfield to discuss issues facing Isle of Wight County at the local, state and federal levels of government. Our meetings are held at the Hampton Inn at 7 PM on the 4th Monday of each month. We update members on conservative news and events across the region, work to raise small-dollar donations for Republican candidates, and volunteer to help their campaigns. If you're interested in keeping taxes low, protecting traditional Virginia values, and getting government out of our personal lives we need your help to keep Virginia conservative!
With a Democrats and Socialists aiming for the Presidency, we need your help in 2020 to keep Virginia Red. Learn how you can get involved today!
