Protect Confederate monuments

Q [to Tim KAINE]: Corey Stewart, the man running against you, wants to protect Confederate monuments. That`s countering your description of how Virginia has moved forward after the Charlottesville Unite the Right rally.

KAINE: Yes, it is. But look who won last year. It wasn`t the people who want to secede or go backwards who are winning elections.

Q: When you mayor of Richmond, you dealt with some of these questions about how to represent the Confederacy. The rallying point last year for the Unite the Right rally was the question of the removal of Robert E. Lee from Charlottesville.

KAINE: Charlottesville was not about statues. It was about hatred. It was about bigotry and division. This was not a save the statue rally. It was a Unite the Right rally. Statues don`t make you march around chanting, "Jews will not replace us." They don`t make you say "blood and soil" or other slogans from Nazi youth rallies. To say Charlottesville was about statues diminishes the gravity of it.

2017: praised Virginia decision to secede during Civil War

Virginia U.S. Senate candidate Corey Stewart (R) praised in a speech last year Virginia's decision in 1861 to secede from the Union, putting it on par with rebellions during the American Revolution and today.

Said Stewart: "This is the state of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison and James Monroe. It's a state of the founders. It's the state of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution."

He added: "But it's also the state of Robert E. Lee, and Stonewall Jackson, and J.E.B. Stuart. Because, at the base of it, Virginians, we think for ourselves. And if the established order is wrong, we rebel. We did that in the Revolution, we did it in the Civil War, and we're doing it today. We're doing it today because they're trying to rob us of everything that we hold dear: our history, our heritage, our culture."

Unfair to condemn only white nationalists

Transgenderism is despicable

Corey Stewart said he would sign a bill that is equivalent to North Carolina's House Bill 2. "As governor, I will absolutely prohibit any locality from doing any such thing and promoting transgenderism in any way, shape or form," he said at a forum the Amherst County Republican Party sponsored. "It's absolutely horrendously despicable."

Marriage is between one man and one woman

Corey believes strongly that marriage is between one man and one woman as he was a strong and vocal supporter of the marriage amendment in 2006. Corey is a strong advocate that family policy should always be in what is in the best interest of children and families. As Lieutenant Governor, Corey will work to strengthen the protection of marriage between one man and one woman and will work tirelessly against any legislation that tries to redefine it in any manner, while at the same time making sure family policy works for the single parent as well, knowing full well they are doing a good job in raising their families as well.
