Victor Williams for Virginia --

On July 4th, Senate Run Against Warner Was Announced at the Leadership Institute's 49th Annual Conservative Soriee in Occoquan Park

On July 4, 2019, attorney and Pro-Trump law professor Victor Williams formally announced his run for the U.S Senate from Virginia. 

Victor Williams views it as the honor of his life to launch this campaign to represent the great and historically-important Commonwealth of Virginia in the United States Senate.

Virginia's history, America's history, our Republic's Founders, our Constitution's Framers, our patriotic observances, our monuments, and -- yes -- our historic statues should be celebrated. They must be protected. 

Victor chose beautiful Occoquan Regional Park at the Leadership Institute’s 49th Annual Conservative July 4th Soiree, for the campaign launch. Virginians from all across the Commonwealth attended the celebrated event.


On July 4, 2019, Professor Victor Williams launched his campaign early with a specific goal to jump start the VA GOP Senate nominee selection process. 

He sought to insure that Republicans have ample time to both raise funds and unify around the strongest woman or man that emerges from the scrum. (While we actively fund raise and work for 2019 GOP nominees for their statehouse races. We must do both!)

Victor urged all potential GOP Senate candidates to join him in beginning their campaigns early. He has suggested that Republican candidates set a high threshold and serve as a model for civil, probing, and honest debate/discussion about issues facing Virginia and our great Republic. When the strongest candidate emerges, then all Virginia Republicans could solidly unify behind that woman or man.


BREAKING NEWS -- July 8, 2019

Just four days after Victor' called for a JUMP START and urged his potential competitors to join the race this summer,  former congressman Scott Taylor (on July 8th) announced his intention to run.

Victor commended Taylor for his quick decision to join him in the contest. Victor praised Taylor for his “stellar service to our nation – both in the military and in Congress.” 

As Victor welcomed Taylor to the race, he expressed hope that other GOP Senate contenders would also join the race early, saying: "With all Republicans working together, I know that Mark ‘Russia-Hoaxer’ Warner will be soundly defeated.”  


Taking to heart Thomas Jefferson's and historic Virginia’s ideal of a "citizen lawyer," Victor has long been engaged in civic projects and political affairs including prior years teaching law in New York City and in Maryland.

During his first years as a Arlington resident, Victor won the 2001 GOP nomination to stand for the Virginia House of Delegates (48th District).

Victor is a proud member of the Federalist Society, the Heritage Foundation, and the Republican National Lawyers Association.

Victor has been active in the Federalist Society since he founded and lead the Federalist Society's University of California-Hastings chapter during his three years of law school.  He served as a National Editor of the Federalist Society's Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy as well as an Articles Editor of the Hastings Constitutional Law Quarterly

Most recently, Victor was at the Federalist Society's 2019 Supreme Court Review held at the historic Mayflower Hotel.

Prof. Victor Williams is perhaps best known as an early-2016 Trump supporter. When those in the leftist academe criticized, and even threatened because of, his Trump advocacy, Victor responded by doubling-down in his Trump support with a disruptive spin.

First, Victor disrupted the primary campaign of Trump's opponent Ted Cruz by independently challenging Cruz's ballot eligibility in nine primary states

Victor generated an exceptional amount of national media attention to the fact that Cruz was not a "natural born" American as the Constitution requires. 

In order to establish "standing" for the ballot challenges and law suits against Cruz, Victor filed as a "write-in" candidate for president.  After Cruz withdrew from the primaries, Victor also withdrew his write-in candidacy and formally endorsed Donald Trump prior to the GOP Convention.

Victor then founded and still chairs "Law Professors for Trump" to independently fight for our 45th President, for America First policies, and for Senate confirmation of Trump nominees - in the media and the courts. 


Victor has been very critical of biased, anti-Trump federal court rulings particularly from trial courts in, and appellate panels of, the various Circuit Court of Appeals.

In his work with Law Professors for Trump, Victor praises Senate Leader Mitch McConnell and GOP leadership for recent rules reform to institute more timely traditional Senate confirmation votes for nominees.  In years past, Senate confirmations took only days or weeks -- not months and years.

However, Victor respectfully asks Senate GOP leadership to stop blocking President Trump's "Recess Appointment" option.

Republicans hold a Senate majority and they should "Stand Proud with President Trump." Or, they should stand aside. 

The GOP Senate continues its "pro forma session shams" every three days for the specific purpose of blocking Trump from using his textual Article II, Section 2, Clause 3 alternative appointment authority. 

According to the Supreme Court's recent dictate in Noel Canning, the Senate must break for at least 10 days (without the pro forma shams).  If the House disagrees with the Senate's adjournment decision,  President Trump's constitutional power to adjourn both chambers is triggered. 

President Trump could then immediately fill important empty offices, such as the vacant Federal Reserve Board positions, with just his signature on recess commissions.

In our history, 1000s of top federal officials have been recess appointed. The temporary "recess" appointments can last up to 24 months -- until the end of the Senate's next session.

And Victor has most recently challenged the constitutional legitimacy of the 20 separate congressional investigations into Donald Trump, his family, his businesses, and his taxes.

Victor reminds that Congress is explicitly forbidden to engage in law enforcement, prosecutorial, and judicial functions.

And he asserts that the various congressional harassments are just the latest shameful stage in the elitist, establishment crusade against disruptive Donald Trump and the 2016 American voters.   

Now in the summer of 2019, Victor Williams calls for both Virginia Republicans and Virginia's disaffected Democrats to "Stand Proud with President Trump" by defeating Mark “Russia-Hoaxer” Warner.

Truth be told: Mark Warner has betrayed Virginia values and Virginia voters by following his party elites in an insane-leftist lurch. Warner must be defeated.
