RNC Statement on Virgin Islands Centennial as Part of United States

Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel issued the following statement paying tribute to Americans in the Virgin Islands, as the territory celebrates 100 years as part of the United States:

“Generations of Virgin Islanders have joined fellow Americans from the states and territories in wearing the uniform of the Armed Services and steadfastly defending our freedoms and liberties as American citizens in the 100 years since the islands of St. Croix, St. John, St. Thomas and Water Island were acquired by the United States from Denmark. While the Virgin Islands is regretfully denied a vote for president, it has been the long-standing position of the Republican Party that Virgin Islanders are afforded equal opportunities and the right to self-determine their own future in the fabric of our great country.”
