It is my honor to represent the citizens of the 88th District in the Virginia House of Delegates. The House of Delegates is one half of the Virginia General Assembly, the other half being the Virginia Senate. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions or concerns about legislation or issues before the General Assembly.  I look forward to hearing from you!


The election may be over, but the results are still not clear. While the media may have declared a winner of the Presidential race, at least five states still appear to be close without a clear winner. There will be recounts, with voting “irregularities” and apparent violations of election law in some states. All of this may end up being disputed in court. President Trump has every right to challenge results his campaign believes are fraudulent, just as Vice President Gore did in 2000.

Here’s what we do know about the election: there was no “blue wave” favoring Democrats; Republicans picked up seats in the US House of Representatives, how many is unclear as some races are still very close; the Redistricting State Constitutional Amendment passed, so Democrats will not be able to gerrymander Congressional and General Assembly districts; and control of the US Senate will be decided by two runoff elections in Georgia on January 5th.

The source of much of the confusion and allegations of voter fraud is mail-in ballots. Many states, including Virginia, expanded the use of absentee and mail-in voting due to fears of the COVID19 virus. Absentee and mail-in ballots are less secure and much easier to falsify than in-person voting. The apparent fraud in some states is causing many voters to lose faith in our elections.  We need to roll back the use of mail-in voting and require in-person voting unless someone is physically unable to make it to the polls to vote, either because of disability or because they are out of the area.


The Democrats have complete control of Virginia state government and have begun implementing a radical agenda that will mean higher taxes, fewer jobs, and less freedom.  Help me stop this liberal agenda and take back the House of Delegates!  Make a donation to show your support for Mark Cole for Delegate and take back Virginia!
