On January 6th 2021, Morgan Griffith failed to defend our country against domestic enemies, and voted to subvert and obstruct the will of the citizens of the United States of America. He does not represent us and is not fit for office. If you or someone you know is interested in running to replace him, please contact Jessica Bennett at firstname.lastname@example.org or Gary Hancock at GHancock@gsish.com.
