Pledged To “Stand Up For Our American Values Like The Sanctity Of Life And The 2nd Amendment.”

Rich Anderson, HD 51

Right-wing extremist Rich Anderson lost in 2017 but is trying to win back his old seat this year. He sponsored bills to restrict access to abortions, voting to require transvaginal ultrasounds, place onerous restrictions on clinics, and legalize personhood for fetuses -- potentially outlawing common birth control methods.

  • Encouraged Virginians to vote for white nationalist Corey Stewart “as if your family and wallet depend on it”

  • Is so pro-gun that he sponsored a bizarre bill to allow guns in airport terminals, a proposal too extreme even for his fellow gun-loving Republicans

  • Opposed Medicaid expansion, which extended affordable health care to nearly 400,000 Virginians
