CULPEPER, VA – In a historic moment, a majority of the Young Republicans Federation of Virginia (YRFV) members have signed a letter of endorsement for a fellow Young Republican and GOP primary candidate for United States Senate, Nick Freitas.

Individual board members signed a letter stating, “Nick Freitas is the most capable candidate in the 2018 Republican Primary to carry the mantle of young republicans in the general election and remains dedicated to representing the best interests of all Virginian’s once a member of the United States Senate.”

Chair of the YRFV, Kishore Thota, released the following statement:

“I am proud to endorse Nick Freitas to be the Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate.

Nick has the innate ability to sit down with people and understand where they are coming from. While he may not agree 100 percent with everyone he meets, he is never disagreeable or disrespectful to them. That quality of mutual respect is severely lacking in politics today.

What I admire most about Nick are his personal core values of honesty, loyalty, and respect. His values are not simply statements of principle or aspirations for what he wishes to achieve, they are bonds that connect him to all Virginians. Nick is a candidate we can all be proud to support!”
