GOP Candidate Takes on Vulnerable Democrat

GOP Candidate Takes on Vulnerable Democrat

( – Enthusiasm continues to increase regarding the upcoming 2022 midterm elections. Republicans have a good chance to regain control of both the House and Senate if history is any indication. Usually, whichever party controls the White House loses Congressional seats.

On Wednesday, July 14, the GOP took a significant step towards taking control of the House with the announcement of Virginia Republican Taylor Keeney running for office against Democratic incumbent Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-VA).

Keeney’s experience checks all the boxes to run a successful campaign and provide outstanding service for Virginians. She served as press secretary for former Virginia Gov. Bob McConnell (R) and spearheaded regional communications for Teach for America, a non-profit working to produce future leaders by recruiting top college graduates to work as teachers.

Keeney also founded Little Hands Virginia, another non-profit that provides resources to needy mothers and children. She currently works as the head of strategic communications for Hunton Andrews Kurth, a well-known law firm with offices in 20 cities located around the world. Hunton & Williams, which merged with Andrews Kurth Kenyon to create the company, was founded 120 years ago.

Keeney spoke with Fox News about her decision to run. As she explained, the nation is facing “big issues” like the mounting crisis at the border, unrestrained government spending, and powerful teachers’ unions “controlling our children’s education.”

“I can’t sit on the sidelines anymore,” she stated.

The race for Virginia’s 7th Congressional District could be key to Republican success during the 2022 midterms.
