Trump Campaign Announces Southside / Central Virginia Leadership Team

Former Congressman Virgil Goode and Fifth District Leaders Stand with Mr. Trump

(New York, NY) November 25th, 2015 - The Donald J. Trump for President Campaign has announced its 5th Congressional District Virginia Leadership Team comprised of Republican and Tea Party leaders as well as current and former elected officials.  

Mr. Trump stated, "I am proud to announce these fantastic additions to my Virginia leadership team. We have had tremendous crowds and enthusiasm from supporters across the state. I will do a great job for the people of Virginia and with their help we will Make America Great Again!"
Former Congressman Virgil Goode, will serve as Chairman of the Fifth District Team. Danville Tea Party Chairman and Pittsylvania County Supervisor-elect Ron Scearce and Campbell County Supervisor and GOP Chairman Eric Zehr will serve as Goode's co-chairs.
Virgil Goode stated, "Contrary to the claims of the political consultant class, Mr. Trump is the only candidate who can defeat Hillary Clinton. Millions of Republican voters stayed home in 2008 and 2012 because they felt the GOP represented the interests of Wall Street rather than those of working Americans. Donald Trump is the best candidate to connect with those voters who feel disaffected from both parties."
Other members of the leadership team include Republican Party of Virginia State Central Committee Member Renee Trent Maxey, local political activist and businessman Jim McKelvey, and Lynchburg-area attorney Susan Oliver.
The Trump Campaign announced Hampton Roads Chairman, Gary C. Byler last month as well as additions to the Virginia staff. Mr. Trump has visited Virginia many times throughout his campaign, most recently on October 31st when he announced his Veterans Affairs Reform policy in Norfolk. Mr. Trump will return to Manassas for a rally on Wednesday, December 2nd.
