LeMunyon’s website highlighted the following campaign themes:
Excerpt: "My top priority is the issue that unites us all in Northern Virginia—reducing traffic congestion and improving our regional mobility. ...I disagree with the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA) being able to increase tolls without approval by an elected body."
Excerpt: "My commitment to quality public education is second to none. As the son of a career third grade teacher and father of three graduates of Fairfax County Public Schools, I know and appreciate the impact our teachers have on our children—and America’s future—every day. Our children learn best when we attract and retain well-paid and motivated teachers and when parents are actively involved in our schools."
- Good Government
Excerpt: "In keeping with a campaign promise, I introduced legislation in 2010 and 2011 requiring the House of Delegates to electronically publish the voting records of every Member of the Virginia House on the Virginia General Assembly website. The 2011 legislation was approved, and it is now possible to easily look up by Member name how a particular Member voted on bills and resolutions."
Excerpt: "During the 2010 and 2011 sessions, I voted for legislation to improve access to higher education and health care for veterans, and most recently, real estate property tax exemptions for disabled veterans and their surviving spouses. I have also supported legislation that makes it easier for veterans to get back to work when they return from serving our country, including fee waivers for veterans starting a new business."
- Jobs & Opportunity
Excerpt: "The key to a successful Commonwealth is a robust economy and a pro-business environment. Our economy will grow stronger, but not by making government bigger. We cannot spend our way to prosperity and leave behind unimaginable debt for future generations to reconcile. Instead, we need leaders who will implement policies that unleash the potential of Americans to innovate and prosper through our free enterprise system, to make a better life for themselves and their children."
LeMunyon won re-election in the 2013 election for Virginia House of Delegates District 67. LeMunyon ran unopposed in the June 11 Republican primary. He defeated Hung Nguyen (D) in the general election on November 5, 2013.
This exurban Washington, DC, district re-elected incumbent LeMunyon with a comfortable 59 percent of the vote in 2011, and Governor Bob McDonnell (R) won 58 percent of the vote here in 2009. However, President Barack Obama (D) earned 53 percent of the vote here in 2012, suggesting that the district could elect a Democratic candidate. Hung Nguyen (D) made several specific pitches for high turnout among the local Vietnamese-American community, but LeMunyon won in a tough race as recently as 2009.
On November 8, 2011, LeMunyon won re-election to District 67 of the Virginia House of Delegates. He was uncontested in the August 23 primary and defeated Eric Clingan in the November 8 general election.
