It is my GREAT pleasure to introduce our new Governor, Glenn Youngkin, our new LT Governor, Winsome Sears, our new Attorney General, Jason MiYares, our re-elected House of Delegate Representative Lee Ware, and our new District 2 Supervisor, Steve McClung!!!!
This year Powhatan set a record for turning out voters here in Powhatan. We were successful in re-electing our House of Delegates representative Lee Ware. We also elected Steve McClung as our new District 2 Supervisor with a record number of votes. And it is my Great Honor to introduce the strongest, and most diverse ticket chosen by Virginian's in a great many years. These three amazing individuals come together as a team and brought Virginian's together to re-shape Virginia and get us back on a better pathway moving forward. Thank you to everyone who worked toward helping Virginia take back our state. The calls, the doors knocking, the rallies, talking to friends and family, helping at events and working when you didn't feel like working. YOU DID IT!!!! New data from Virginia governor’s race signal big trouble for Democrats in 2022 By Becket Adams - The Washington Examiner 16 November 2021
Virginia Democrats suffered a bloodbath on Nov. 2. Republicans captured not only the governor’s mansion but the House of Delegates, as well as the offices of lieutenant governor and attorney general. On Tuesday, with the release of the certified results of the Virginia governor’s race, more bad news emerged for Democrats in the Old Dominion. Republican Gov.-elect Glenn Youngkin’s vote total was 85% of former President Donald Trump's vote total in Virginia in the 2020 presidential election. Meanwhile, failed Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe's vote total was only 66% of what President Joe Biden won in the state in the same election last year. In total, 3,289,430 Virginians voted in the 2021 Virginia governor's race — up an impressive 25% from the 2017 gubernatorial race. And Republicans increased their vote margin this year in all of Virginia's 11 congressional districts, upping their numbers significantly from the previous election cycle, according to the Virginia Public Access Project. In Virginia’s 1st Congressional District, the GOP improved its margin by 8.5 points, in the second by 12.5 points, in the third by 12.4 points, and so on. Democrats currently represent seven of Virginia’s 11 congressional districts. On Nov. 2, Youngkin carried six, two of which are represented currently by Democratic lawmakers. And the Republican candidate didn’t just win these — he won them big. The Virginia Beach-area 2nd District, which at R+1 is a toss-up district and is represented by Democratic Rep. Elaine Luria, went for Youngkin by 8 points. Virginia’s 7th, an R+3 congressional district, is represented by Democratic Rep. Abigail Spanberger. Youngkin won it by 11 points. In Virginia’s 10th Congressional District, which is represented by Democratic Rep. Jennifer Wexton, Youngkin lost. However, his 5-point margin of defeat is not what Virginia Democrats want to see in the 2022 midterm elections. Of course, these data points alone aren’t enough to draw conclusions about Democrats' chances next year. However, when we compare how Youngkin performed this year to how Republicans performed in the 2017 Virginia gubernatorial race, a clearer picture emerges of what Democrats have to fear in next year’s midterm elections. Data compiled this year by the New York Times also show a statewide shift in the GOP's favor, across every country and district, in comparison to how Virginians voted in the 2020 presidential election. Put more simply, every single county shifted to the right in the 2021 governor’s race, in the direction of the Republican Party, just months after Biden won the commonwealth with 54%. Youngkin’s success in winning two districts represented by Democrats, the statewide shift since the 2020 election toward Republicans, and the Virginia Republican Party's increase in its vote margin in all 11 congressional districts all point to a tough year for Democrats ahead.
Voting Irregularity: We received a number of phone calls and emails regarding paper ballots not being scanned into the voting machines on election night. There was an error by the ballot printer that caused several of our polling locations to run short on ballots on Tuesday. The Registrar and local elector contacted both parties and made them aware of the situation as well as the solution. The solution was to distribute additional ballots to all polling locations. This was done in a timely and efficient manner. The difference experienced by voters was instead of putting their ballot into the scanner, ballots were placed in the emergency bin on the back of the scanning machine. Those ballots were hand counted after the polls closed. This process slowed Powhatan reporting the final results but every vote was counted on Tuesday evening. All polling stations in the State of Virginia have a back-up plan in the event of a power outage or a scanner going down or if ballots run low. When this happens, the emergency procedures are enacted in a timely manner. That is exactly what occurred on Tuesday. We are lucky to have such a strong and experienced team of folks running our polling stations. They simply pivoted over to the emergency procedure and kept right on going.

Fellow Republicans, it is up to us to conduct ourselves in a respectful manner. We must remain above board at all times. We should respect those around us and respect their opinions whether we agree with them or not. Yelling and Screaming and destruction of property does not solve anything. At the same time we must be diligent to protect liberty, to stand up fervently for the Second Amendment, to manage our borders and to keep FREEDOM as what drives this Great Country. I realize this is becoming more challenging each and every day. We must continue to hold tightly to our God Given Rights and continue to Pursue Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness with all of our might! We are what is standing in the way of Tyranny. If it comes to a time where we need to fight off Tyranny, we will do so with all our might and resources. The Founding Fathers did this to create our Great Country. If we want our Freedoms to continue we need to be prepared to fight for Freedom itself.
