Week 1 Press Highlights

“The libertarian-leaning delegate is seen as a rising political star on the Right, advocating a noninterventionist foreign policy, opposing abortion, and voting against gun control measures.

Washington Examiner

“Freitas, a former Green Beret with a libertarian bent, gained a national following for making incendiary floor speeches in the Virginia House of Delegates that fired up conservatives and rankled Democrats. … He is the best known of seven Republicans vying for the nod to challenge Spanberger”

“Within hours of his announcement, the conservative Club for Growth endorsed Freitas, calling him a “conservative rockstar” and the only state lawmaker to ace the group’s scorecard. State Sen. Bryce E. Reeves (R-Spotsylvania) also endorsed Freitas.”

Washington Post

“Freitas is seen as a staunch member of the GOP’s libertarian arm and as a robust fundraiser from like-minded conservatives. He attracted the single-largest contribution in any contest for the House of Delegates — $500,000 from top GOP donor Richard Uihlein of Illinois”

Richmond Times-Dispatch

“[Nick Freitas] is seen as the clear favorite to win the district convention in May”
