LCRC Congratulates Democrat Jennifer Wexton on Special Election Win

January 22, 2014

Loudoun County Republican Committee Chairman Mark Sell issued the following statement on the results of the Virginia State Senate special election in the 33rd District:

"On behalf of Loudoun Republicans, I want to extend my congratulations to Jennifer Wexton on her victory in the special election. We wish her every success in her efforts to serve the citizens of our district.

"I also want to thank John Whitbeck for representing our party well in a spirited campaign and the many volunteers who, as always, selflessly supported his effort, especially during the inclement weather throughout Election Day.

"Clearly, this is a disappointing outcome for our party. The people of the 33rd District have spoken, and we need to examine the results carefully and determine how to respond to the message they have sent. We continue to believe that Loudouners strongly favor the Republican principles of limited government, tireless support for job creators and strong values, and we must find new ways to reach out to, and express this winning proposition to, a broader cross-section of voters."
