M. Kirkland "Kirk" Cox - Delegate Virginia House of Delegates (R-40, Colonial Heights, Part of Chesterfield County), elected to the House of Delegates in 1990, former speaker of the House of Delegates

Website: kirkcox.com

Kirk Cox is a retired public school teacher, coach, and proven conservative winner. He holds the bluest seat of any Republican in the Virginia General Assembly, has a 30-year track record of defending and advancing conservative principles like the Second Amendment and the cause of life. He’s running for Governor to fight back against liberal overreach, and lead Virginia forward to the future we deserve.

Kirk rose through the ranks becoming Majority Whip, Majority Leader, and eventually Speaker of the House of Delegates. During his time as Speaker, Virginia cut taxes by $1.2 billion, froze tuition at colleges and universities for the first time in 20 years, eliminated all state funding for Planned Parenthood, and held back far-left proposals on gun control and abortion. While Kirk was Speaker, Democrats introduced legislation to make abortion legal up until the moment of birth. Kirk spoke passionately on the floor of the House of Delegates and the bill was defeated under his leadership. Democrats also tried to pass strict gun control measures, all of which were defeated by Kirk and the Republican House of Delegates he led.

Jason Miyares - Del. Virginia Beach, former prosecutor

Website: www.JasonMiyares.com

Delegate Jason Miyares is an example of President Ronald Reagan’s "Shining City upon a Hill." His story begins with his mother, Miriam Maria Miyares, who fled communist Cuba in 1965 with the clothes on her back and no idea from where her next meal would come. She legally immigrated to the United States and instilled in her three sons a passionate love of the freedom and democracy of America. Miyares grew up in Virginia Beach, attending local public schools and growing up in a middle-class household that emphasized the values of hard work, love of country, and service above self. Above all, his mother’s story of losing everything she owned to the horrors of socialism taught Jason Miyares firsthand the truth of Ronald Reagan’s maxim that “freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction… it must be fought for, protected and handed on…..”

That truth animates Jason Miyares’ service as a prosecutor, leader and Delegate.​

 

In November of 2015, he won the open seat to the 82nd District for the House of Delegates by the widest margin in the district's history while becoming the first Cuban-American ever elected to the Virginia General Assembly. In the House of Delegates, Miyares has been a conservative voice in Richmond, standing up against the Defund the Police movement and proudly standing with our law enforcement community. He serves on the General Laws, Courts of Justice and Transportation Committees, where he has worked to build smarter, more accountable government working on transparency and regulatory reform. Recognized as a “Champion of Free Enterprise” by the Virginia Chamber of Commerce, Delegate Miyares has consistently opposed higher taxes and regulations that make it hard for small business owners to expand and thrive. In 2019, Miyares advanced landmark legislation that makes it easier for small business owners to provide childcare services as a benefit to their employees. A former prosecutor (Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney) for the City of Virginia Beach, Miyares worked to keep our most violent criminals off our streets and our families safe. Jason Miyares has brought commonsense conservative leadership and accountability to Richmond while fighting for fiscal discipline and government transparency.
