    Knowing that you share my commitment to upholding family values, I wanted to update you on an award I just received! The family is at the center of American society, and at a time when traditional values are under attack, it’s so important for leaders to step up and protect that first source of support and understanding. I was adopted, and I’ve seen first-hand the transformative power family can have. As a member of the Values Action Team and the Pro-Life Caucus in the House of Representatives, ... Read more

    WASHINGTON - Congressman Rob Wittman (VA-01) today released the following statement on the selection of Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court. "Judge Gorsuch boasts an impeccable academic and judicial resume, making him an excellent pick to fill the vacant seat on the Supreme Court.

    I believe, and I’ve often told my staff, that we’re put on this earth to make a difference in the lives of others. As a public servant, that’s what motivates me. When I look around and I see the faces of my family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors, I see so much potential. The folks who make up the First District are a powerful force for good. We can change our Commonwealth, our country, and our world, one act of generosity at a time. Winston Churchill said that “we make a living by what we ge... Read more

    Growing up in the town of Montross on the Northern Neck of Virginia, I learned early that when you’re outdoors, there are no ugly places. I can’t say how many boyhood afternoons I spent with a line in the water, watching the sun sink beyond the horizon, or how many days I spent wandering in the woods with my dad. But what I can say is that, for me and for so many Americans, the time spent in the great outdoors was foundational. It laid the groundwork for what I would become—a biologist and an ou... Read more

    “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Remember being asked that question? Remember all the possibility at the other end of it? Anything you could dream about, you could be. But as adults, we know that question is about more than choosing a career. It’s about aspiring to be better than we are. It’s about seeking greatness. As we shape our next generation of leaders, that’s what we have to keep in mind: we’re not just molding minds, we’re building character. I often reflect on that when I’m s... Read more

    February 3, 1959. That’s the day I was born. But home didn’t start there. It started when my mom and dad adopted me. And in a way, that’s comforting. My family chose me—they could have chosen anyone, but they chose me. And the woman who brought me into the world gave me more than life; she gave me possibility. She gave me a shot at a boyhood full of fishing boats and baseball cards and the opportunity to have a wife and children and now grandchildren of my own. She gave me the chance to serve th...

    WASHINGTON – Congressman Rob Wittman (VA-1) released the following statement today after President Obama appeared before a joint session of Congress to deliver his final State of the Union address: “Before the President’s State of the Union address tonight, I said that I hoped he would deliver a cogent, comprehensive strategy for defeating ISIS.

    We’re at the beginning—a New Year filled with new opportunities—and I’ve been thinking a lot about my priorities. When I consider the challenges we’re facing at home and abroad, I can see how it might be easy to get bogged down in the details. But I want to rise above that for a moment. If I’ve learned anything from my time as a public servant, it’s that our greatest resource and our best hope for overcoming even the toughest challenges is our people. Our forefathers knew that progress isn’t abo... Read more
