Emmett Hanger...Conservative Republican....Period.

Over the past year state Senator Emmett Hanger has faced some pretty unfair charges and I'd just like to set the record straight...

Taxes - Voted to eliminate the estate tax and car tax as well as lower the sales tax

Illegal Immigration - Drafted legislation requiring proof of citizenship before people in Virginia receive state benefits.

Gun Rights - Maintains an A+ rating from the National Rifle Association and just recently sponsored legislation allowing Virginia citizens to carry concealed weapons into bars.

Education - Consistently defends Virginia's attempt to improve the quality of its state schools and has led the fight against artificial and uniform standards imposed on the Commonwealth by No Child Left Behind.

Few in Richmond can match Emmett's commitment to the conservative agenda, while also addressing the needs of his constituents so adequately (more on that later).
