- Second Amendment
Excerpt: "Randy is an NRA Life Member, gun owner, and sportsman. He will always protect the people¹s right to keep and bear arms in full exercise of the Second Amendment."
Excerpt: "During his time as a Delegate, Randy has worked persistently to improve our congested regional roadways through thoughtful and appropriate public transportation infrastructure. As our 10th District delegate and member of the House Transportation Committee, as well as previously while a member of the McDonnell Administration, Randy has consistently sought and supported enhanced funding for road improvements."
- Taxes and Spending
Excerpt: "Randy will continue to identify and work to eliminate wasteful spending and will demand strict accountability for how our tax dollars are spent. As our Delegate, Randy will strive to keep taxes low to foster the creation of jobs, allow for thriving businesses and farms, and fight unnecessary expansion of government."
Excerpt: "Randy is an advocate for alternative energy innovation and use of clean-burning natural gas for electric power production. To that end, during the 2013 General Assembly session, Randy successfully patroned groundbreaking, landmark legislation which expands the ability of Virginia citizens to produce energy from renewable sources."
Minchew won re-election in the 2013 election for Virginia House of Delegates District 10. Minchew ran unopposed in the June 11th Republican Primary. He defeated Monte Johnson (D) in the general election on November 5, 2013.
On a very good night for Democrats, Monte Johnson (D) might defeat first-term incumbent Minchew in this district, which lies mostly in the politically-mixed Loudoun County. However, Presidential candidate Mitt Romney (R) still edged President Barack Obama (D) with 51 percent of the vote here in 2012, and Governor Bob McDonnell (R) won with a comfortable 62 percent in 2009.
On November 8, 2011, Minchew won election to District 10 of the Virginia House of Delegates. He defeated Cara Townsend and John Whitbeck in the primary on August 23, 2011. Minchew defeated David Butler (D) in the November 8 general election.
