Delegate Rob Bell Named Campaign Chair for House Republican Caucus
RICHMOND, VA – Virginia House of Delegates Republican Leaders announced Tuesday that Delegate Rob Bell (R-Albemarle) will serve as Campaign Chair for the House Republican Caucus during the 2017 election cycle.
Commenting on the appointment, Virginia House of Delegates Speaker William J. Howell (R-Stafford) said:
I am delighted that Delegate Bell will lead our campaign efforts this cycle as Campaign Chair. Delegate Bell will lead a united caucus focused on advancing a positive governing vision that will continue to stand up for conservative principles and values. I am excited about the opportunities we have this year to elect Republican delegates and to elect a Republican Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and Attorney General. I also want to thank Delegate Greg Habeeb who’s hard work as Campaign Chair during the 2015 cycle helped retain our strong majority.
Speaker-Designee Kirk Cox (R-Colonial Heights) said:
Our caucus begins the 2017 election cycle building off a strong General Assembly session. Rob will do a tremendous job leading our campaign efforts across the Commonwealth for the House Republican Caucus. I look forward to House Republicans taking our record of conservative leadership and our vision for the Commonwealth to the voters this fall. I have no doubt that we will return in 2018 with a strong majority committed to governing the Commonwealth responsibly.
I appreciate the support of House Leadership and look forward to serving as Campaign Chair this election cycle (said Delegate Bell). The Republican Majority in the House of Delegates has a strong record of results in Virginia. We will take our message of governing with our record of results to all corners of the Commonwealth. I look forward to working with the leadership team and our entire caucus this fall.
Delegate Rob Bell was first elected in 2001 and represents the 58th House District, which includes Greene County and parts of Albemarle, Fluvanna, and Rockingham Counties. Delegate Bell resides in Albemarle County with his family where he practices law.
