Bryce Reeves Announces Re-elect Bid in New 28th Senate District

November 15, 2022

Fredericksburg, VA – Last night, Virginia Senator Bryce Reeves (R-Spotsylvania) officially announced his reelection bid in the new 28th Senate District. Reeves, who has served as Senate District 17’s representative since 2012, was drawn into the new 28th district as the sole incumbent during the redistricting process that occurred this past year.

The sitting Senator kicked off his campaign alongside elected officials, friends, and constituents at the popular, locally owned Beer Hound Brewery of Culpeper, VA. Guest speakers included Delegate Nick Freitas (R-Culpeper), Sheriff Scott Jenkins (R-Culpeper), Supervisor Duane Adams (R-Louisa), and Supervisor Jim Jewett (R-Madison).

“I just want to thank everybody for the outpouring of support I have received”, said Reeves. “I’ve worked countless hours to improve the lives of our veterans, members of law enforcement, and Virginia families. I know the people of the 28th District, and I know just how important family values are to them. Whether it was securing the largest retirement pay tax cut in the history of Virginia for our veterans, fixing our broken foster care system, or standing up for our constitutional rights in Richmond, I have always worked with my constituents and those values in mind.”

“It seems like every day, new challenges are presented to Virginians. Parents have to fight just to have their voices heard, and we recently saw a massive decline in our students’ math and reading test scores. As a father and high-school football coach, I take these issues personally. For the sake of my constituents and all Virginians, I won’t back down to the liberal left and will continue the fight in Richmond to protect our families and our freedoms.”

Reeves, who is currently serving his third term as a Virginia Senator, has a well defined history of passing conservative legislation regardless of which party controls either chamber in Richmond. An avid voice in favor of the pro-life movement, parental rights, and the Virginia business community, Reeves brings the kind of experience and legislative effectiveness that is needed in Richmond.

Reeves Recalls Sounding the Alarm Early on Chinese Nationalists Stealing US Intellectual Property

October 24, 2022

FREDERICKSBURG, VA – Today, the USDOJ (US Department of Justice) held a live press conference outlining charges against over a dozen defendants in a variety of cases relating to the intimidation of US residents and theft of US-based intellectual property. According to FBI Director Christopher Wray, ten of the defendants are Chinese officials. Each of the cases relate in some way to alleged CCP (Chinese Communist Party) attempts to steal intellectual property from US-based tech and academic institutions.

There was also talk of a case of Chinese agents attempting to force a United States resident into returning to China. Attorney General Merrick Garland added that “The [People’s Republic of China] has a history of targeting political dissidents and critics of the government who have sought relief and refuge in other countries.” The various charges from the DOJ include attempts to steal confidential information from US-based tech companies, surveillance and harassment of a US resident in an attempt to intimidate them into returning to the PRC, obstruction, and attempting to target US citizens and coerce them into acting as Chinese agents.

Senator Reeves, who carried SB717 this year seeking to protect Virginia academic institutions from theft of intellectual property by Chinese foreign agents, had this to say:

“The threat posed by China to our academic institutions and our tech companies has never gone away. I attempted to secure public, Virginia-based universities from these sort of targeted attacks with SB717, which would have required university employees to disclose any payments from foreign governments as well as prohibiting them from taking Chinese government grants. Unfortunately, the bill was killed before it ever saw the light of day on the Senate floor in an unsurprising party-line vote. These charges brought up by the Department of Justice validate the need for oversight and caution when it comes to the participation of foreign nationals in our educational system. My legislation would have done just that. I plan on reintroducing the legislation this year in the hopes that the Senate Democrats will wake up to reality and stop playing the identity politics game.”
