Today, I write to formally announce my campaign for re-election to the State Senate, representing the 11th District of Virginia. Our Commonwealth faces many challenges, ranging from a budget shortfall to fighting back against the continued infringement on our personal liberty by a federal government grown too large. Now, more than ever, is the time for true Conservative Leadership!

Nomination contests are excellent opportunities for citizens to compare the voting records of their representatives with their rhetoric, and ensure legislators stay accountable to the people they serve. I submit my record of Conservative governing to you, and humbly ask for your support - and your vote.

I look forward to meeting with many of you out on the campaign trail. This year we will hold and build on the Republican majority we have worked hard to establish in the Senate and House. We will take a stand for our principles of limited, effective government, and we will stand in defense of our individual liberty.

Thank you for the privilege of public service. May God continue to bless our great Commonwealth!
