  • Poll: Millennials Prefer Sarvis Over Gillespie

    Robert Sarvis released the following statement in response to a Christopher Newport University poll finding that he has more than twice the support of Republican Ed Gillespie among Virginians between the ages of 18 and 35: 

    "Despite a shoestring budget and exclusion from all three debates, my campaign for an Open-Minded and Open for Business society has proved popular among millennial voters. Another recent poll found that a majority of millennial voters would support a candidate who is both socially liberal and fiscally conservative. It's no wonder my opponents have been scrambling for millennial votes on college campuses. 

    "Unfortunately, both Ed Gillespie and Mark Warner refused an invitation from students at University of Mary Washington for a three-candidate debate. At such a debate, I could have exposed Mark Warner's lack of leadership on equal rights under the law and forced Ed Gillespie to defend his flip-flop on a federal marriage amendment. I would also have been the only candidate on the stage advocating for robust protections for civil liberties. "

  • 3rd District Gerrymandering Highlights Need for Nonpartisan Redistricting

    Following Tuesday's federal court decision striking down Virginia's Third Congressional District boundaries, Robert Sarvis has called for nonpartisan redistricting for state and federal elections, saying:

    "Even absent a racial motivation, gerrymandering for partisan advantage and incumbent protection is also wrong. It is specifically designed to perpetuate power and deprive voters of competitive elections and fair representation. It's self-dealing in the worst possible way, literally rigging the system."

  • Sarvis, Warner, Gillespie at Roanoke Chamber

    Virginia voters won’t hear from all the candidates for U.S. Senate at tonight’s exclusionary “debate,” but you can get a sample of what that would look like by watching yesterday’s candidate forum in Roanoke. Each took questions separately, so Ed Gillespie and Mark Warner escaped being confronted directly by Robert Sarvis.

    Sarvis, Warner, Gillespie on Foreign Policy in Roanoke

    Democrat Mark Warner expressed openness to having troops on the ground in military operations against ISIS.

    Meanwhile Republican Ed Gillespie bragged about his role in the Bush White House, ignoring the Bush Administration’s disastrous foreign policy that created the power vacuum in Iraq filled by ISIS.

    Only Libertarian Robert Sarvis provides an alternative to the interventionist foreign policy supported by the establishment in both major parties.

  • Gillespie's Call for Next Attorney General to "Uphold Our Constitution" Rings Hollow

    Following Ed Gillespie's call for Eric Holder's successor as Attorney General to "impartially defend our laws and uphold our Constitution," Libertarian U.S. Senate candidate Robert Sarvis responded in a statement

    It's utterly hypocritical for Ed Gillespie to raise concerns about the Executive Branch failing to uphold our Constitution given the Bush Administration's devastating record on civil liberties. Let's not forget that the Bush Administration started a warrantless wiretap program without Congressional authorization.

  • Gun owners should take NRA endorsement with a handful of salt

    In response to the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund's endorsement of Republican Ed Gillespie for U.S. Senate, Robert Sarvis issued the following statement:

    "Gun owners should take any endorsements and ratings by the NRA with at least a handful of salt. The NRA consistently carries water for the political establishment at the expense of principle.
