This year, Virginians will be going to the polls to elect a Governor, Lt. Governor, Attorney General and selecting the 100 Members to the House of Delegates. (It should be noted that the present Governor Ralph Northam cannot run for a second term and that Virginia State Senators are not up for election this cycle.) Read our recent article in The American Spectator on the Governor's race here.
To become a candidate for one of the offices, an individual must file with the Virginia Department of Elections a "Declaration of Candidacy" and meet certain qualifications as defined on the website.
To obtain the Republican nomination, the candidate must be elected by the chosen party nomination method for that office, i.e. either by a convention or primary. On December 5, 2020, the Republican Party of Virginia State Central Committee, the governing body of Commonwealth's Republican Party, decided on an "in person" convention as the methodology for the 2021 nomination process for statewide offices (Governor, Lt. Governor and Attorney General). House of Delegates candidate nominations are decided in each HOD District Committee and may be impacted by the redistricting of the legislative districts. This situation is still fluid and we will keep you posted on the nomination process.

Below is a listing of the individuals that have either officially filed for the office, expressed an interest in running for the particular public office or are mentioned in the media as a potential candidate. We have included a link to their campaign website or bio page if available and will remove names / contact information if the individual publicly states they are not running for office. (Candidates contact us if we are missing anyone or you wish a different link: SUVGOP@gmail.com).

On January 12th, the Republican candidates for Virginia's Lieutenant Governor joined the Northern Virginia Republican Business Forum for a discussion of the issues and to take questions from the zoom audience.
One of the key issues SUVGOP selected in our recent Annual Report was the need for the Republican Party to begin building our bench of local elected officials and that starts this November. Electing conservative minded candidates to Northern Virginia City and Town Councils plus some School Boards, will provide experience and knowledge on important local issues. This will also begin to fill the pipeline of potential candidates for higher office. Please connect and assist (financially and volunteering) for your local candidates.
