I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who attended last night’s reception with Rep. Allen West. It was a fantastic evening, and I think everyone who attended left fired up and ready to fight hard in the last two weeks of the 2011 campaign and on into 2012. Rep. West is truly a great conservative Republican, and we are very fortunate to have him serving in Congress.
The funds the 8th District Committee raised will help us in our final push to Election Day 2011 and lay the groundwork for 2012. We are still totaling the final numbers, but we know we did well thanks to your support and will be able to help our candidates this year and next.
I also wanted to extend a special thank you to Phil Kiko, a longtime member of the Arlington County Republican Committee, who was instrumental in helping the 8th District Committee bring Rep. West to Alexandria for the event. Phil has been a tremendous supporter of the 8th District and local Republican Party, and he is a tremendous asset to the local and national GOP.
Thank you again for all your support of the 8th District Committee and the local Republican committees, clubs, and candidates. As Rep. West said, these next years will be critical ones in the history of our country, and now more than ever we need strong Republican leadership. Your great support will make this happen.
With best regards,
8th District Republican Chairman
Republican Party of Virginia
We’ll have photos from the event here soon!
