Lynchburg, Va – Republican Bob Good released the following statement upon winning the hotly contested Virginia’s Fifth District congressional seat:
“Tonight is a victory for the conservative values that founded and sustain this nation, for biblical principles, the sanctity of life, religious liberty, free-market capitalism, and the importance of faith and family.
“The political elite said that a true conservative couldn’t win here, that this district was turning blue, that this race was a toss-up, but the voters have proven that a bright red conservative can win by standing on principle, despite being vastly outspent from outside the district.
“Tonight, we’ve said that America is still a great nation. I have been elected to hold the line for the idea that government exists for the people and that our rights come from our Creator. To God be the glory!”
Said Good, “I received a gracious call from Dr. Cameron Webb tonight, extending his congratulations for our campaign’s victory in the 5th District Congressional race. I want to compliment him for a hard-fought campaign and thank him for acknowledging my win with his concession. I look forward to working to earn the support of all the citizens in the 5th District, and validating the trust placed in me by the hundreds of thousands of voters who cast their votes in this all-important election.”
