Mechanicsville, VA- Saturday morning over 100 Hanover residents turned out to mark the opening of the Rusty McGuire for Delegate campaign headquarters. Commander Paul Galanti (Navy, Ret.) opened the event by endorsing McGuire and asking residents of the 55th District to lead a renaissance of common-sense conservative ideals. CDR Galanti, a prisoner of war in the Hanoi Hilton for seven years said: “I normally don’t get involved in politics. I only do so when I can support someone who I know will stand strong for the values our great nation was founded upon. It starts here, only a few miles from the birthplace of Patrick Henry, by supporting a leader like Rusty who can bring his background of service to our nation and commonwealth with the intelligence and common-sense conservatism necessary to rein in government. I call on the residents of the 55th District to elect Rusty McGuire to the House of Delegates.”

Talk radio personality Scott Lee then spoke, highlighting McGuire’s record of service before self and leadership before turning to the key conservative values important to Hanoverians. “Rusty is a Virginia citizen and an American hero. With his background as a soldier and a prosecutor, there could be no better representative for the citizens of the 55th District. We need a leader like Rusty who can stand up to special interests and big government on behalf of the citizens of this great commonwealth.”

McGuire closed the rally by firing up the crowd with his speech saying, “I am pleased to see so many friendly faces here this morning. I am proud to have veterans from World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm, Operation Enduring Freedom, and Operation Iraqi Freedom supporting our campaign. Most of you have heard my background before but growing up, I could never have imagined standing here before you, asking for you to help me become your next delegate. I will stand strong for conservative values such as the right to bear arms, fighting against tax increases and working to create innovative new jobs for Hanover residents.”

The campaign headquarters will be open 9a.m. to 8p.m. Monday through Friday, 9a.m. to 5p.m. Saturday and it will be closed on Sundays. You can contact the office by going to or calling (804) 519-6617.
