National GOP Group Announces Contributions In Two Loudoun House Races

© Leesburg Today - 08/28/2015

Republicans in two Loudoun County House of Delegates races are getting monetary help from a national GOP organization.

The Republican State Leadership Committee-which has a mission of electing down-ballot, state-level GOP candidates-announced Friday that it is committing $100,000 before Labor Day to campaigns in the 86th and 87th districts as well as to three others in what it deems key races.

In the 86th District, which comprises parts of Loudoun and Fairfax counties, that means that Republican Raul ""Danny"" Vargas will be getting a contribution. He faces Democrat Jennifer Boysko and independent Paul Brubaker in that contest.

Chuong Nguyen is the Republican nominee in the 87th District. He is squaring off against Democrat John Bell and Libertarian Brian Suojanen.

The 86th and 87th seats will be open because the Republican incumbents in those districts, David I. Ramadan and Thomas Davis Rust, respectively, are not seeking re-election.

The RSLC effort is aimed at electing new female Republican candidates as well as those with diverse backgrounds. Vargas is Puerto Rican, and Nguyen and his family escaped communist Vietnam to come to America.

""The strength and diversity of Virginia's Republican candidates this year is reflective of what we are seeing around the country, with outstanding Republican candidates who more closely reflect the electorate we seek to serve,"" RSLC chairman emeritus and former U.S. Senate candidate Ed Gillespie said in a prepared statement. ""These five delegate candidates are running on policies that will create more opportunities for their fellow Virginians. Their victories in November-combined with victories in the state senate-will go a long way in demonstrating that our Republican nominee for president will carry Virginia next year.""
