Covington VA –-(Ammoland.com)- “VCDL-PAC congratulates SENATOR-ELECT Ben Chafin on his crushing win in the 38th Virginia Senate district!
The VCDL-PAC is proud to have played a role in winning that very important seat.
Chafin’s election gives Republicans in the Virginia Senate a narrow one seat majority over Democrats, TAKING CONTROL OF THE SENATE FROM VIRULENT ANTI-GUN POLITICIANS DICK SASLAW AND DONALD McEACHIN, WHILE RENDERING ANTI-GUN LT. GOV. RALPH NORTHAM MOSTLY IRRELEVANT!
Virginia gun owners, who saw several good pro-gun bills die because of maneuvers by Saslaw and McEachin, can breathe a sigh of relief…FOR THE COMING YEAR. I very much look forward to working with SENATOR Chafin next January!
Now we will have yet another special election to fill Senator-elect Chafin’s old House seat! Stay tuned for that.
The VCDL-PAC thanks ALL OF YOU who live in the 38th Senate district for getting out there and making this happen. I love to watch this group in action!
The Democrat contender, Mike Hymes, said one thing on his VCDL survey and then was caught on a recording saying the opposite at a fundraiser. Since there was no way of knowing what Hymes really believed on the issues, you took action that helped push the VCDL-PAC endorsee, Ben Chafin, to win the election by better than 60%!
If you don’t live in the 38th District, but pitched in to make this victory possible, THANK YOU, TOO!
Now comes the hard part. This was merely the opening salvo. In less than 15 months, ALL 140 SEATS IN THE VIRGINIA GENERAL ASSEMBLY WILL BE UP FOR GRABS!
I pledge to each of you that the next year and a half of my life will be CONSUMED with getting pro-gun candidates elected. But I will, of course, need your help.
A year ago, gun owner apathy led to a disaster at the polls, putting rabid anti-gun zealots in all three statewide offices. Anti-gun and other interests spent MILLIONS in EACH race. In comparison, contributions to VCDL-PAC gave it only a miniscule amount of money to work with. The VCDL-PAC was frugal and made the money stretch as far as it could, but it did limit how far it could go and how many races it could impact.
We CANNOT afford a repeat of last year.
I hate to sound like a broken record, but the painful fact is that protecting our rights is expensive. If we are grossly over-matched again next year, then we could end up RIGHT BACK WHERE WE STARTED THIS JANUARY.
Please help me avoid that.
Some of you are making MONTHLY contributions, and I CANNOT thank you enough. Nothing flashy, just consistent. I hope that anyone who can, will consider doing so. If you can’t do it monthly, I understand – times are tough. But if you can’t contribute regularly, please do so whenever you can.

No one on the VCDL-PAC takes a salary and there are only very limited administration expenses. Virtually every penny taken in goes directly into the fight to elect pro-gun candidates.
Thank you for your support and congratulations on another important victory!
