Former Virginia House of Delegates Speaker, retired teacher, and Republican candidate for Governor Kirk Cox released the following statement after self-avowed socialist Lee Carter announced his campaign for Governor.
“Last week Delegate Carter introduced legislation to repeal Virginia’s right-to-work law, which could force Virginians to pay union dues just to get a job. It’s a scary policy that will turn the Commonwealth over to the union bosses that run Chicago and Illinois. Also scary is that not a single Democratic statewide candidate bothered to disavow this, or any of the other extreme policies Lee Carter believes in, like defunding the police and eliminating private healthcare. It’s clear the socialist ideas that Delegate Carter espouses and is building his campaign on are already the mainstream of today’s Democratic Party. All that’s left is to go ahead and give him the keys to the DPVA headquarters.”
