Navy SEAL John McGuire Wins Big in Henrico
Henrico, VA– Today, Navy SEAL and Republican candidate for Congress John McGuire announced a huge win in Henrico County, filing over 750 out of the 1,404 total delegate forms filed for the 2020 Republican Convention within the county. The county has one of the largest shares of votes and McGuire’s win puts him in a good position to take the Republican nomination.
“The support I’ve seen in Henrico has been incredible,” said McGuire, “We have so much momentum. The fact that we filed well over half the delegates in one of the largest counties in the 7th district makes that very clear.”
Henrico is one of the most critical areas for both the nomination as well as the general election this fall. The nominee will need to be able to win Henrico in order to flip the district back to Republicans.
“Winning Henrico as I did shows voters exactly what I’ve been saying all along,” McGuire continued, “that I’m the only Republican in this race that can win in the suburbs. I was born and raised in Henrico, I’ve raised my family here, I own a 21 year business in the region, voters know me, they know I do what I say, and they know I’m the only one in the race that can defeat Spanberger this fall.”
John McGuire is a current Delegate representing the 56th district of Virginia, which includes the counties of Goochland, Louisa and parts of Henrico and Spotsylvania. Over his past two elections to the House of Delegates John won twice in Henrico precincts that Dave Brat lost. A former Navy SEAL who served for 10 years, John is now the owner of a small fitness company called SEAL Team PT Inc. John and his wife Tracy live in Goochland County. They have five children.
