Gary Adkins Announces Intent to Run for U.S. Senate 2020

(FREDERICKSBURG, VA – June 17, 2019) – Gary Adkins, of Fredericksburg, Virginia, announced today that he is seeking the Republican nomination to run for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Mark Warner.

Mr. Adkins, who describes himself as a resolute Constitutional Conservative, said, “In the coming weeks and months I will be traveling around the Commonwealth speaking with and listening to Virginians – civic organizations, business associations, politically active groups, and various elected officials, and citizens. I want to hear directly from the people of Virginia about their issues and concerns.”

“I am running because Virginians are not being well-served by many of our elected officials. There is intense dissatisfaction with elected representatives who support an ultra-liberal, ‘progressive’ agenda resulting in unsustainable national debt, threats to our economy, and outright lawlessness resulting in unnecessary risks to our national security.”

“Unlike our incumbent Senators, I support conservative, pro-business policies that will positively impact the Commonwealth and its citizens, and continue the improvement of economic opportunity and prosperity for all Americans. I support policies to secure our nation, preserve our sovereignty and maintain the rule of law – and I strongly believe that most Virginians do, as well. We desperately need Congressional Representatives and Senators that promote pro-growth, pro-American policies that positively impact Virginia’s future. Currently, our needs are not being met.

Mr. Adkins further stated, “I have long been deeply concerned with our nation’s future, and that of our Commonwealth, and that concern grows steadily yet today. I strongly believe Virginians want and deserve Senators who will stand firm in steadfast defense of our Constitution, founding principles, and values while championing solutions for issues that matter to them. Virginians want and need Statesmen not ideologues. If elected, I will be the kind of Senator that promotes limited government, free enterprise, private property rights, individual liberty, personal privacy, back-to-basics education, equal justice for all, American sovereignty, and independence.”

Mr. Adkins stated that, “Having lived in several regions of the Commonwealth gives me a balanced perspective on issues important to all of our different regions and their needs. I will be your voice, Virginia.”

A native of the Commonwealth, Mr. Adkins was born in Clintwood (Dickenson County), located in Southwest Virginia. Gary and his wife, Ann, moved to Stafford County in 1990, shortly after completing a 20-year career in the United States Air Force. Since then, Mr. Adkins has held technical and management positions of increasing responsibility including many years as an executive with defense contracting and software development, and high technology firms to include commercial remote sensing and geospatial information technology and services. For several years, he has served on the Board of Directors for the Industrial Development Authority for the County of Stafford and City of Staunton, Virginia.
