For all Virginians

Gillespie Statement on Events in Charlottesville

2017 Republican gubernatorial nominee Ed Gillespie today released the following statement on the events in Charlottesville:

“Having a right to spew vile hate does not make it right. It is painful to see these ugly events in Charlottesville last night and today. These displays have no place in our Commonwealth, and the mentality on display is rejected by the decent, thoughtful and compassionate fellow Virginians I see every day. I know we all appreciate the law enforcement officials maintaining order and protecting public safety there.”
