“I’ll tell you what, I'm a Republican, what I thought a constitutional Republican was, but the way the GOP is going in Virginia it’s very difficult for me to stay with any party. I believe duopoly is really, the two-party system is really failing the American people right now,” he said.

Riggleman was defeated by Republican Bob Good in the Virginia GOP primary elections in August. Good, a physician, has drawn criticism for casting doubt on the efficacy of masks.
