I was not able to find another easy listing of Virginia Beach conservative candidates running for office in 2018. Therefore, I decided to collect a list on this page. According to their bylaws, the Republican Party of Virginia Beach cannot fund advertising for candidates for non-partisan races. In contrast, I am happy to devote some of my resources to do so. I created a Virginia Beach Republican voter guide printable flyer in PDF format you can print out to offer to people you know in November. The below list consists of those I have met or heard about. Not authorized by a candidate.
By conservative I mean those that wish to conserve what is good and limit the size of government to the essentials. Also those that consider themselves Republican or Libertarian. Furthermore, this would exclude those that consider themselves liberal or progressive.
“19 Don’t turn away God’s Spirit 20 or ignore prophecies. 21 Put everything to the test. Accept what is good 22 and don’t have anything to do with evil.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:19-22 (CEV)
