CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA – Surrounded by family, friends, and media outlets from across the Commonwealth, 5th District Republican Nominee Tom Garrett took the stage at Random Row Brewery to formally accept the election results.
Throughout the campaign, Senator Garrett touted his proven experience of job creation coupled with his military background and knowledge of emerging terrorist threats both domestically, and abroad.
As incoming vote tallies came in demonstrating a landslide win for the Republican Nominee, Garrett issued the following statement:
“First and foremost, I want to thank God and my family for their steadfast support. Similarly, I could not be more appreciative for the outpouring of support by volunteers, donors, and GOP units who have given so much during this election – it is truly humbling.”
Garrett went on to say:
“This campaign has always been about jobs and the equality of opportunity. I look forward to working on rolling back the destructive regulatory burdens on our job creators and pursuing creative solutions to replace Obamacare with a more affordable, market-based system. Further our legislators need to focus on pushing resources and decision making away from Washington and back to our localities. I will also make it a priority to fight to secure our borders and protect our nation from threats at home and abroad.”
The 115th Congress is slated to begin on January 3, 2017.
