Two Republican candidates are running for the nomination in the district Senator Mark Herring will vacate if he wins the recount for Attorney General. Voters in the 33rd Senate district will make their choice in a Mass Meeting to be held on Monday, December 16th, at Park View High School, 400 W. Laurel Avenue, Sterling, VA 20164, with registration from 6:30 PM until 7:30 PM. You must be at the high school prior to 7:30 to register to vote. The meeting will begin promptly at 7:30. Since several hundred people are expected to attend so getting to the school early would be a good idea. If you are unsure of your state Senate district, click here.
Two candidates, John Whitbeck and Ron Meyer Jr., are running to face democrat Jennifer Wexton in a special election; the date has not yet been set.
Ron Meyer Jr. is 23 years old and without a regular job. He has been a young spokesman on Fox News on a few occasions but was fired from his most recent job when he said John Boehner would resign as Speaker. Admitting this rather large mistake, Meyer said ” Look, I’m a 23-year-old activist who’s just starting”. He’s right, he’s just a kid starting out. He may well make a good candidate in 10 or 20 years. He’s just not ready yet.
Ron rents an apartment in Herndon with his girlfriend. He’s never had a mortgage or a business or even a regular job. After deciding to run for State Senate Ron proposed to his girlfriend in a rather opportunistic move on Thanksgiving. Until a few weeks ago Ron Meyer was running for Congress in the 11th district. He has refused to return money that donors gave him for the 11 district race while he uses their money in this current race for State Senate. Many donors are extremely angry about Meyer using money that they donated for one purpose only to see their money used for a completely different purpose in a district that doesn’t even represent them. Is that even legal? I can find no endorsements for Ron Meyer Jr on his website or anyplace else.
John Whitbeck is 35 years old, married for 10 years, with two little girls and another due next month. He is a well respected attorney in Leesburg having run his own business for years. As Chairman of Virginia’s 10th Republican District, John has been a solid conservative who has been able to join together all factions of the party. In 2008 Virginia’s 10th district voted for Obama. Under John’s guidance the 10th district voted for Romney in 2012. John owns a home in Landsdowne and has been President of their Home Owner’s Association. He is a solid conservative who will not raise taxes, he supports the Second Amendment, and is pro Life. He knows how to beat democrats and he has proven it as the leader in the 10th Congressional district. John has been endorsed by an overwhelming majority of the elected officials in Loudoun County.
Please visit John Whitbeck’s website and learn more him and his ideas for our future. I think you will agree that John is by far the best candidate to represent us in the special election for Mark Herring’s seat, should such an election become necessary. Republicans need to take back this seat to control the State Senate and stop McAuliffe from expanding Obamacare into Virginia and raising our taxes. John is the candidate who can do that. If you are a voter in the 33rd State Senate district please vote on Monday for our future and the future of our children.

UPDATE: The Meyer campaign has contacted Virtucon with corrections that they would like to make to this post:
1) Ron is 24, not 23.
2) Ron does have a regular job as a PR professional.
3) Ron has not been on Fox on a few occasions, but has made over 100 appearances on national cable news.
4) He was not fired from his job after the “Fire Boehner” incident. Ron left American Majority Action more than 2 months after this incident on his own accord because he was announcing his candidacy.
5) Ron has run a business and held a regular job.
6) As a personal friend to Ron, I know that proposing to Celia is something that he has had planned for months leading up to Thanksgiving and was unrelated to his candidacy.
7) Ron has not refused to return money to donors that have requested this sort of action. You will be able to see in his upcoming FEC and SBE filing reports that Ron has refunded thousands of dollars to donors that have requested refunds.
8) The only money that Ron has transferred from his Congressional account to the state level account is money from donors that have given Ron the approval to do so. Not a single cent from a donor has been transferred over against their wishes.
