LCRC Commends Sen. Mark Warner On Vote To Confirm ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson As Secretary Of State, Condemns Sen. Tim Kaine

Loudoun County, Virginia - The Loudoun County Republican Committee warmly thanked Senator Mark Warner for his decision to vote to confirm Rex Tillerson, President Donald Trump's nominee for Secretary of State.

"We applaud Mark Warner's bold choice to simultaneously defy the environmental lobby and break with the Democratic Party by voting to confirm Secretary Tillerson." said Will Estrada, Chairman of the Loudoun County Republican Committee. "We wish we could say the same about Virginia's junior Senator, Tim Kaine, but sadly he lacked any fortitude whatsoever when pressured by special interests who are dead set on opposing President Trump's vision of a competent American foreign policy."

"Secretary Tillerson has both a brilliant diplomatic mind and valuable experience in one of the world's most challenging industries. We are disappointed that Senator Tim Kaine failed to put America's best interests ahead of his own partisan political leanings. It appears that Senator Kaine is continuing his evolution into a partisan Democrat hack that began when he decided to run as Hillary Clinton's running mate."

The Loudoun County Republican Committee also joined with electric automobile titan and renewable energy evangelist Elon Musk in praising Secretary Tillerson's record as a global business leader. Last week, Musk went out of his way to compliment Tillerson's in-depth understanding of world affairs, stating via Twitter that "[Tillerson] knows how to win for his team. His team is now the USA."
