January 14, 2016 – Richmond, VA – The Republican Party of Virginia issued the following statement with the news of Congressman Scott Rigell’s retirement:

Congressmen like Scott Rigell are hard to come by. Throughout his career, Scott Rigell wasn’t just committed to our shared conservative values, he has also been committed to improving our politics, and in so doing, improving our country.

Scott has been a tireless advocate for Hampton Roads, especially our men and women in uniform. There’s no greater testament to his hard work than the number of Gold Star families who supported him during his 3 campaigns.

Scott will be sorely missed in Virginia politics and we sincerely thank him for his service to our country and Commonwealth. We wish him all the best in his future endeavors.
