Bryce Reeves Wins University of Mary Washington Debate

FREDERICKSBURG, VA -- Senator Bryce Reeves (R-Spotsylvania) participated in the Senate District 17 debate hosted by the University of Mary Washington tonight. Reeves showed tremendous strength as a proven leader and garnered much of the audience’s support. While a wide variety of topics were covered during the debate, Reeves’ answers all had one common theme: his passion for ensuring the safety and wellbeing of his constituents.

“We have passed a lot of meaningful, bipartisan legislation throughout the past 8 years,” said Reeves. “We have completely overhauled our foster care system to help children. We have worked with medical professionals to offer more affordable health care solutions for those with pre-existing conditions and for those who cannot afford insurance for their families. We have helped victims of domestic abuse, and we have done everything in our power to make Virginia the most veteran-friendly state in the nation. And while these accomplishments are huge, our work is not done.”

Democrat candidate Amy Laufer chose to focus her attention during tonight’s debate on her desire to change Virginia and bring undesirable, extreme policies into the 17th District, highlighting her inexperience and lack of real solutions to the issues important to voters.

Reeves added, “Tonight’s debate only further proved to me that my constituents want and demand real results, not just empty promises. I will keep working hard every day - in the 17th District and in Richmond - to ensure that our community stays the best place to live, work, raise a family, and retire in. Virginia is an incredibly special place like no other in the country, and I look forward to continuing my service to this great Commonwealth.”

Bryce Reeves is a small business owner, former Army Ranger, and former Prince William County narcotics detective. He currently represents the 17th District in the Virginia Senate, which includes the City of Fredericksburg and the Counties of Albemarle (part), Culpeper (part), Louisa (part), Orange, and Spotsylvania (part).
