Virginia Farm Bureau Federation AgPAC Endorses Tony Wilt for 26th District House Seat

August 27, 2021

Harrisonburg – On Tuesday Delegate Tony Wilt (R-Broadway) received the endorsement of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation (VFBF) AgPAC, a political action committee of Virginia Farm Bureau Federation, in the race for the 26th District seat in the Virginia House of Delegates.

“I am grateful to have the support of the premier organization representing Virginia farmers,” said Delegate Wilt. “As a representative of the top ag producing community in the Commonwealth, I understand how critical a vibrant agriculture sector is to our entire local economy. That’s why I have made supporting our farmers and the ag industry a focus during my time in office. Just this year we were successful in passing our legislation that provides more support and tools for our farmers to implement voluntary water quality improvements and I was also proud of our bi-partisan effort to get help for our struggling dairy industry. If reelected, I plan to continue to support policies that preserve our family farms and protect our natural resources, while guardian against ill-conceived heavy handed government mandates that will destroy local farms.”

The non-partisan VFBF AgPAC was created by Farm Bureau in 1999 and employs in-kind contributions to support candidates who can best support agriculture and Farm Bureau issues. A full list of candidates endorsed by the committee can be viewed online at vafb.com.

Delegate Wilt currently represents the 26th House District in the Virginia General Assembly. The 26th District includes the City of Harrisonburg and part of Rockingham County.

August 24, 2021

HARRISONBURG (August 23, 2021)– The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), Virginia’s leading small business advocacy organization, presented its coveted Guardian of Small Business Award to Virginia Delegate Tony Wilt Monday morning at Happy Hounds Doggie Daycare, an NFIB member and small business owner, at 300 Waterman Drive in Harrisonburg.

The Guardian of Small Business award is the most prestigious honor that NFIB bestows on legislators in recognition of their efforts to support small business. The NFIB Virginia Leadership Council, an advisory board comprised of NFIB members, voted to present the award to Delegate Wilt for his outstanding leadership on small business issues.

“I am proud to present Delegate Wilt with this prestigious small business award,” said NFIB’s State Director in Virginia, Nicole Riley. “Delegate Wilt not only has an exceptional voting record with NFIB but has demonstrated leadership on small business issues. He deserves this award thanks to his promise to keep taxes low and promote a stable and economically safe environment for our small business entrepreneurs and job creators here in Virginia.”

“I’m honored by this recognition from Virginia’s leading voice on small business issues, NFIB,” stated Wilt. “The fallout from the pandemic combined with the burdensome policy changes adopted by the majority in Richmond the last two years have made it extremely difficult for many small businesses and entrepreneurs. I will continue to push for a reasonable tax and regulatory environment that allows our small businesses the best opportunity to grow and create jobs.”

Hits the Ground Running in Reelection to House of Delegates

Harrisonburg, VA – Conservative champion Delegate Tony Wilt (R-Rockingham) announced today the hiring of a campaign manager to steer his reelection efforts in the Virginia House of Delegates 26th District.

Jimmy Spinella, a seasoned operative with years of experience across the east coast of the United States, will be taking the reins of the campaign and bringing the wealth of experience needed to hold this crucial seat as Republicans work to take back the House of Delegates. Spinella’s past campaigns most notably include that of President Trump in 2016, Nick Freitas’s historic write-in victory in 2019, and various other key races from Georgia to New York.

Delegate Wilt commented, “I’m excited to be running for reelection to the House of Delegates. It’s been the honor of a lifetime to serve my community and I look forward to going back to Richmond to bring pragmatic, commonsense solutions to the problems we face.”

He continued, “To that end, I’m glad to have Jimmy on the team to help steer this ship. He’s experienced both in Virginia and across the east coast and is going to bring the energy and efforts needed to win this election.”

Delegate Wilt represents Harrisonburg City and part of Rockingham County and is running for reelection to represent the Virginia House of Delegates District 26. The election is November 2, 2021.
