After much thought and prayer, it is my pleasure to announce that I am endorsing Patti Lyman for Republican National Committeewoman.
It would be easier for me to sit on the sidelines rather than jump into this race. Every time I endorse one Republican over another, it makes some people happy and others disappointed. However, at this point in our history the only thing that matters is the future of our country. The only question is who will be most effective at helping us save America. This is not personal, and when the election is over, we must unify behind the winner.
So, while I have nothing against Patti’s competitor, I am convinced that Patti is by far the right woman to represent Virginia on the RNC. The Republican Party is an exclusive club. I am a member of the Republican Party. It reflects the principles which created and sustained this nation. Therefore, I am interested in supporting candidates who hold to those principles as passionately as I do and are willing to fight for them.
Patti Lyman has those qualities. She is a woman of conviction, courage, and energy. Virginia needs Republican leaders who can help reclaim our majority. As Ronald Reagan used to say, this is no time for “pale pastels, but bold colors which make it unmistakably clear where we stand on all of the issues troubling the people.”
That is the kind of leadership Patti Lyman represents. She fully supports President Trump with whole-hearted commitment. She is an exceptional communicator, with a first-rate mind and the persuasive ability of an experienced attorney. She has promised to treat this non-paid position as a full-time job, which is quite a bonus for the Republican Party.
Finally, as a Pastor, I am inspired by Patti’s faith. It tells me that her Conservative principles are rooted in something deeper than opinion. Her views are based in truth because they emanate from her belief in God. She shares that quality with our Founding Fathers and so many who have gone before us. That faith is under attack today, but Patti will fight for the Judeo-Christian history and values that birthed and prospered this nation for 244 years.
Patti Lyman has my enthusiastic and unequivocal support. I am urging all of my Republican friends and supporters to vote for her as the next RNC National Committeewoman from Virginia.
God bless you and your family and may He continue to bless the United States of America to come through this crisis stronger, more unified, and more prosperous than ever.
For God & Country,
Bishop E.W. Jackson
Patti Lyman has shown herself for years to be a strong, principled, courageous leader and advocate for President Trump in Virginia! If Virginians can’t defeat the radical pro-violence, pro-taxes, anti-police and anti-gun rights liberals in this state, it will be because we foolishly reject strong leaders like Patti!!!
Patti so powerfully conveys the damage and danger to every Virginian from democrat control that even democrats can feel the fear about where their party is headed. Let’s make Patti our new RNC National Committee Woman on August 15th, friends!”
Elected Delegate, 2020 RNC National Convention
I first met Patti Lyman when she was speaking at the Northern Virginia Tea Party and I was starting my 2019 run for School Board. I saw from the beginning she is a principled, unapologetic, conservative Republican with a lot of optimistic energy, and we became fast allies.
She helped me greatly in my campaign last year and also this year in my successful race for State Central Committee. Patti believes strongly that activist leadership is essential to resurrecting our state party, which is truly in distress. With a strong foundation in constitutional originalism and our God-given liberties, Patti will never waver on having policies and platforms consistent with our Virginia Republican Creed and will fight for them on SCC and at the RNC.
Moreover, Patti will be a full-time National Committeewoman and pledges to personally visit every Republican committee statewide to meet the Republicans who determine our election outcomes. She is also a strong campaigner who will travel the state helping our Republican candidates WIN. I am convinced Patti is the best ambassador Virginia Republicans could have to represent us at the Republican National Committee, and I urge all of my friends who are RPV delegates to vote for Patti for RNC National Committeewoman on August 15th.

As someone who has seen so many opportunities lost because our party or candidates refuse to fight back against our opponents - be they democrats or the Republican establishment - I know Patti Lyman is the person we need fighting for Virginia at the Republican National Convention.
Too many who earn a Juris Doctor Degree use their status only to personally enrich themselves and amass power, but Patti has used her law degree over the past four decades to advocate for the unborn as well as persecuted Christians, putting her both on the right side of the arguments as well as history. You can only admire that kind of commitment. She has proven with her life’s work her rock solid dedication and commitment to Judeo-Christian values, and she will stand for them both at the RNC and also our State Central Committee.
Our biggest problem in Virginia are Republicans who dig in their heels and refuse to fight back and that’s why we lose. We need warriors like Patti who are NOT part of the failing establishment to help us end the status quo and start standing up for the best values of our party. In Patti Lyman, Virginia Republicans will have a strong and fearless ambassador to the national party. Grassroots Republicans will find no stronger ally, and our opponents will not find a more formidable opponent. I urge everyone to vote August 15 for Patti Lyman for RNC National Committeewoman."
(Still) Candidate for Chairman,

As a 10th District Delegate to the 2020 RNC Convention and a longtime surrogate speaker to the Hispanic community for President Trump and the White House Office of Communications, it is my honor and pleasure to highly recommend my dear friend Patti Lyman for RNC National Committeewoman for Virginia.
In the years I’ve known her Patti has shown herself to be an exceptionally strong leader and unapologetically loyal, dedicated, hardworking conservative Republican. She is extremely intelligent and as a seasoned attorney she brings valuable policy and persuasive skills to the position on behalf of Virginia Republicans. Patti has proven she will fight for our conservative principles and will work aggressively and tirelessly to Make Virginia Red Again. Patti is also a great campaigner, and her strong example advocating for conservatives encourages other Patriot women in Virginia to speak out loudly and clearly for President Trump, his administration, and all the Virginia Republican candidates.
Please vote for Patti Lyman as our next RNC National Committeewoman for Virginia.
Patti Lyman is the right person at the right time to represent the state of Virginia as RNC National Committeewoman.
Patti has the experience, passion, and sheer force of will and personality we need to fight for our conservative values not only across Virginia, but at the National Party level. In Patti's mind, the battle to get Virginia voting Red again is fully winnable, and as an attorney she already has a strategy to take the steps and speak the words necessary to turn that strategy into action from the grassroots up. That she has committed to be a hands-on, full-time Committeewoman is absolutely critical to this mission.
Virginia Republicans have our work cut out for us to protect our rights and freedoms in this environment, and we all have different - yet equally important - gifts and talents necessary to the various tasks. I believe it’s wise to allow Patti to utilize her educational/professional background and legal skills to aggressively advocate for Virginia at the national level, draft and advance conservative resolutions and policies and build coalitions among RNC members to advance them. Her talents are well-suited to the position, and this will allow our focus as Republicans to remain in other critical areas.
I deeply respect both candidates offering themselves to represent Virginia Republicans as RNC National Committeewoman. I simply believe that this year Patti Lyman is the woman who will get us over the finish line. Let's go Virginia!
