Virginia Congress hopeful Jen Kiggans has received a show of support by receiving an endorsement from former U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley, as well as being highlighted in the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) new “Project Spotlight” and shared with Fox News digital, which seeks to put a spotlight on top party recruits who represent what the House GOP reelection arm calls “the unique stories and diversity of the Republican Party in communities across the country.”
Kiggans, who last week won the Republican nomination in Virginia’s 2nd Congressional District, one of the most competitive House seats in the country, highlights in a paid media effort by the NRCC that “as a third-generation member of the armed services, honor, duty, service, I served my country as a Navy helicopter pilot, served my family as a mom of four, and served my community as a nurse practitioner and state senator.”
Pointing to skyrocketing gas prices and soaring inflation, as well as the controversial U.S. exit from Afghanistan last summer, Kiggans argues that “like so many Americans, I’ve seen the devastating results of Democrats’ one-party rule. Enough is enough.”
“One-party rule in Washington has made it tougher for families to make ends meet and the road to the American dream is getting harder and harder to find. Prices are too high, students have been left behind, and families don’t feel safe in their communities,” Kiggans charges. “Those are the problems I want to help solve.”
“Jen Kiggans is one of the most accomplished candidates I’ve seen,” NRCC Chairman Tom Emmer emphasized in a statement. “Her experience as a Navy helicopter pilot, nurse practitioner, and mom makes her uniquely qualified to solve the numerous crises Elaine Luria and Washington Democrats have created for Virginia families.“
Kiggans also recently received support from former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. and 116th Governor of South Carolina, Nikki Haley.
.@JenKiggans is a rockstar and a force to be reckoned with. She’s fought for taxpayers and defended conservative values in Richmond and I look forward to seeing her walk the halls of Congress.

I am honored to have Ambassador Nikki Haley’s endorsement and support in my fight to flip #VA02! I look forward to working together with Ambassador Haley to ensure we take back the House this year and restore American strength at home and abroad! pic.twitter.com/Io7T9nx5Fm

The show of support for Kiggans has firmly established her as a force to be reckoned with in the GOP and many Virginians are hopeful to have her represent their district in the upcoming election, where she will take on fellow veteran and Democratic Rep. Elaine Luria.
