ConservativeHQ.com Chairman Richard A. Viguerie, the Leadership Institute’s founder and Virginia’s Republican National Committeeman Morton Blackwell, Jim Martin, Founder &
Chairman of the 60 Plus Association and a host of other conservative leaders from Northern Virginia gathered at the home of Kevin Gentry to boost limited government constitutional conservative Republican Yesli Vega past incumbent “woke” Democrat Abigail Spanberger in Virginia’s tight race for Congress in Virginia’s Seventh District.
Virginia Republican congressional candidate Yesli Vega, who is running against anti-police Democrat Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-Va.) in the competitive 7th District, has rocketed to national attention as one of a half-dozen conservative Hispanic women who won their Republican primaries and are now carrying the GOP banner against Far-Left Democrats.
“For so long we’ve allowed the Democrat Party to define who we are as a party, but I always talk about my parents who fled war-torn El Salvador and came to this country with nothing but the clothes on their backs,” Vega, who has often invoked her parents’ immigrant story, said onstage at CPAC. “Only in America can you come with nothing and achieve everything.”
But as a police officer and Prince William County, Virginia, County Supervisor Ms. Vega is more than an ethnic candidate appealing to Northern Virginia’s growing population of Hispanic voters.
“This is a battle between good and evil,” Ms. Vega remarked at CPAC, and she's right.
Ms. Vega has made a law-and-order agenda and fighting illegal immigration the centerpieces of her campaign in the district, which extends across central Virginia and includes the Richmond suburbs.
“I got into law enforcement because my younger brother was viciously gunned down and nearly killed by MS-13 during a gang initiation process. That night, his best friend Anthony was murdered at the age of 15,” she said. “So, when Nancy Pelosi tries to defend these savages, I take that personally because I know what it was like to be in that waiting room with my parents wondering if my brother was going to survive.”
While Yesli Vega has made law and order a centerpiece of her campaign, incumbent Democrat Spanberger has been desperately trying to hide her anti-police, anti-border security voting record behind a barrage of ads misrepresenting the Democratic Party’s record of anti-law enforcement actions and votes.
As the Vega campaign pointed out, Mrs. Spanberger presents herself as a moderate but voters with President Biden 100% of the time and with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi at least 92% of the time.
“All you have to do is look at her voting record. She’s taken money from AOC’s ‘Defund the Police PAC.’ One of the requirements to be endorsed by such a radical PAC is that you have to pledge to take funding away from law enforcement. And that’s exactly what she’s done,” Ms. Vega said in an interview with The Washington Times. “I absolutely think she wants to have voters forget about that.”
This is a winnable race. The leftist incumbent, Abigail Spanberger, won by only 1.8% in 2020. The district was then redrawn. And it went for now-Governor Glenn Youngkin by two points last year.
Everything is on the line for our country right now. And too many House and Senate races are far too close for comfort.
Every dollar conservatives put into Yesli Vega's campaign will translate into getting out conservative voters on Election Day and BRANDING Abigail Spanberger as one of the "woke" Far-Left Democrats responsible for the disasters of lawlessness at our southern border and in our neighborhoods.
