Riggleman Campaign Asks 5th District Committee to Reject Pay to Play and Stand for Ethics and Integrity

AFTON, VA – Ahead of the 5th District Committee meeting tonight, the Riggleman Campaign is asking the committee to reject pay for play politics by having members of Bob Good’s campaign staff recuse themselves from voting on issues concerning the nomination contest. This comes after hundreds of calls and emails from delegates who are deeply concerned and frustrated with the lack of transparency in the nomination process. The rules of the nomination need to be neutral, transparent, and fair for all the delegates and the candidates. The only way for this to happen is to ensure Bob Good’s campaign staff does not have a vote or a proxy vote on matters related to the nomination of their employer.

“Calls and emails have been coming in non-stop since delegates to the convention found out Bob Good is paying committee members to vote a certain way. We are proud to stand up for them and ask for transparency on the committee.” said Kurt Lofquist, Campaign Spokesman, “It’s hard to explain to delegates why some have to drive 4 hours one way to Bob Good’s home county to cast a vote. Delegates understand that votes are being bought on the committee, and they are fed up. We are standing with the delegates of the convention, and asking the committee to reject pay to play politics and embrace ethics and transparency. Tonight, the committee should ask the members of Bob Good’s campaign to recuse themselves completely from votes concerning the nomination process. This is just the right thing to do.”

The Convention for the Republican Nomination will he held on Saturday, June 13th at Tree of Life Ministries in LynchburgRSVP for the Convention.
