Virginia "Women for Mitt" Events In Loudoun And Fairfax Brought Out Hundreds of Supporters

On July 24, we held "Women for Mitt" Events in Loudoun and Fairfax County that drew hundreds of supporters and volunteers. We were joined by Beth Myers, the former Chief of Staff to Governor Romney when he served as Governor who is now serving as a Senior Advisor working on the Vice Presidential vetting, as well as former First Lady Susan Allen, Carolyn Wolf, Tiero Cuccinnelli, and Jean Ann Bolling.

Big thanks also go to our hosts for our events - Nina May in McLean and Leo Lugo in Sterling who hosted us at his new restaurant "El Sol Azteca". If you are in Sterling, check out this new Sterling restaurant!

Official McLean and Sterling Republican Victory Campaign Office Openings

On Tuesday, July 24, we also had the official office openings for the McLean and Sterling Republican Victory Offices in conjunction with our "Women for Mitt" events. Thanks for the big turnouts and all the food provided by our Women's Clubs. We appreciate your enthusiasm and involvement and keep your friends and neighbors joining you! Please note that our Sterling office has a "Children's Corner" for parents who would like to bring their children with them to the office.

Policy Roundtable with Romney for President Policy Director, Lanhee Chen, Draws Local Business Leaders

On July 18, we had a great Policy Roundtable event with Romney for President Policy Director, Lanhee Chen, and many local business leaders and supporters. Lanhee, a son of Taiwanese immigrants from California, holds four degrees from Harvard-a bachelor's, a law degree, a master's, and a Ph.D. and is most commonly described as "brilliant". He understands the value of hard work because he's done it!
We were hosted by Mike Jing, President of Cyberdata Technologies in Herndon. We heard about the great contrast between Romney policies and the failed Obama policies of the past 3 years that have brought us 16 trillion in debt and sustained unemployment over 8%. Our NOVA Business Leaders know that it is time for a turnaround and Mitt Romney is the President we need in 2013 to get the job done!

Team Romney Joins Celebration Of Asian Festival

On July 21 and July 22, Team Romney had a major effort at the Asian Festival held at George Mason University. We had Asian business leaders, our Asian American outreach team, and volunteers represented at our table and had a great response throughout the weekend. We also participated in the Asian Pacific Islander Presidential Debate where former Congressman Tom Davis and I introduced a Romney video that was made specifically for the debate.
