Video: Dem Challenger Matt Rowe Delivers Letter Calling on Rep. Wittman to Withdraw Support for Donald Trump


From the Matt Rowe for Congress campaign in Virginia’s 1st CD, currently (mis)represented by Rep. Rob Wittman (R).

Congressional candidate Matt Rowe is calling on Rob Wittman to withdraw his unconditional support for Donald Trump. In an open letter to Congressman Wittman, Mr. Rowe is highlighting the discomfort that voters in Virginia’s First District are feeling. Mr. Rowe is personally delivering a copy of this letter to Congressman Wittman’s Stafford office (95 Dunn Drive, Stafford, VA 22556) this Friday at 11:30am. The letter reads as follows:

Dear Congressman Wittman,

As a member of the House Armed Services Committee, you have a duty to understand the threats our nation faces and how we can best address those threats. I want you to please reconsider your stated support for the Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump. A Trump presidency is a direct threat to our national security and Donald Trump will be unable to properly fulfill his responsibilities as Commander-in-Chief.

Trump’s relentless attacks on the family of fallen soldier Capt. Humayun Khan reveal that he does not have the temperament to be president.

Trump’s acceptance of a veteran’s Purple Heart and following statement that he, “always wanted to get the Purple Heart” and that, “This was much easier” reveal that he does not have the courage to be president.

Trump’s hesitation to support our allies in NATO – an organization that has been the bedrock of defense of the Western world for nearly 70 years – reveals that he does not have the common-sense to be president.

Trump’s flippant attitude regarding nuclear proliferation and the use of nuclear weapons in a first-strike capacity reveals that he does not have the sanity to be president.

I invite you to join the many voices across the First District that are denouncing this dangerous and foolish man. It is your responsibility to fulfill your duties as a statesman before your duties as a loyal Republican supporting his party’s nominee.


Matt Rowe
