The Republican Legislative Campaign Committee announced Tuesday that Virginia House of Delegates Speaker Kirk Cox will serve as Co-Vice Chairman of the 2019 Executive Committee. The Republican Legislative Campaign Committee is the only national organization dedicated exclusively to electing more Republicans to state legislatures. The RLCC’s primary mission is gaining and growing Republican control of more state legislative chambers by targeting national resources to support winnable local races.

“The RLCC has been a tremendous partner of ours and I’m proud to be part of the 2019 leadership team,” said Speaker Cox (R-Colonial Heights). “This a pivotal year for our Commonwealth and our partnership with RLCC will allow us to combat the flood of out-of-state dollars we expect to see as Democrats seek to flip the House of Delegates this year.”

“The RLCC has enjoyed a long history with the Virginia House Republican caucus,” said RSLC President Matt Walter. “Speaker Cox and his political team run a top notch organization and his RLCC leadership position will allow us to showcase the good work of Virginia Republicans on the national stage.  Ensuring the Speaker and his team have the necessary resources to hold their majorities in 2019 remains a top priority for the RLCC.”
