MONTROSS – Rob Wittman, Congressman for Virginia’s First District, released this statement today regarding the 2020 election:
“I am running for re-election to continue to serve as the Congressman representing the First District in 2020. I am certainly not retiring, nor am I seeking statewide office in 2021. My complete focus is on the people of the First District and the concerns and challenges we face everyday.

“As the most senior Virginia Republican in Congress, I know there is still much work to be done on these issues, and I look forward to continuing to work for conservative results for the First District of Virginia. As Ranking Member of the House Armed Services Committee’s Subcommittee on Seapower and Projection Forces, a senior member of the Natural Resources Committee, and a Co-Chair of the Rural Broadband Caucus, we are well poised as a district to take on Virginia’s challenges and implement real solutions.

“I am focused on tackling the real challenges that affect the folks in the First District. I will continue my work to secure our border and combat illegal immigration, fix our crumbling roads and bridges, increase access to high speed internet, ensure veterans receive the benefits they deserve, promote career and technical education programs, cut the red tape hurting our businesses, lower the cost of health care, and get Washington’s spending problem under control.

“These are the issues Virginians care about, and I am working every day for results for the First District. I know that the best ideas don’t come from Washington but from folks in the First District; let’s work towards success, towards an even better America – together.

“I look forward to continuing to serve the great folks of the First District now, in 2020, and beyond.”
