GOPAC Announces $65,000 Contribution to Virginia Senator Bryce Reeves

Arlington, VA – GOPAC today announced a $65,000 contribution to support the reelection of Virginia Senate Majority Whip Bryce Reeves. Senator Reeves is seeking reelection in 2015 having first won election in 2011 with 50.3% of the vote.

“Senator Reeves has worked to improve the personal security of Virginians and provide them greater control over their own economic security. He embodies the qualities and abilities that GOPAC seeks as we work to build a roster of Republican leaders to advance conservative ideas,” said GOPAC Chairman David Avella. He went on to say: “Governor McAuliffe may be a lousy governor, but he is a very smart political strategist. As he and Senate Democrats continue to abandon their targeted candidates who are underperforming, they are going to look for Republicans to attack in hopes of putting a race in play to get them the seat they need to take majority control. We are committed to doing our part to make sure Senator Reeves is not left to take on Governor McAuliffe and Senate Democrats alone in these final weeks.”

The contribution from the GOPAC Election Fund reinforces the $50,000 the organization has already invested in Senator Reeves’ reelection committee. Senator Reeves is a member of GOPAC’s influential Legislative Leaders Advisory Board and has participated in its prestigious Emerging Leaders Program.

Excerpts from his biography include: “Upon graduation Bryce was commissioned a Second Lieutenant in the United States Army and served as an Airborne Ranger in the Infantry. He holds a Master of Public Administration in Public Policy from George Mason University. He currently serves on four standing committees in the Senate. As a freshman he was chosen to serve on the powerful Courts of Justice Committee, the Privileges and Elections Committee, Social Services and Rehabilitation Committee, and the General Laws and Technology Committee where he also serves on the Joint General Laws Subcommittee on the Virginia Public Procurement Act. Bryce Reeves lives in Spotsylvania County, Virginia with his wife Anne and their two children, Nicole and Jack.”
