Virginia Republican gubernatorial candidate Sergio de la Pena told Breitbart News Daily it is “absolutely ridiculous” the state has not reopened its schools.
de la Pena, a legal immigrant from Mexico, rose from poverty in Mexico to become an Army Colonel after serving 30 years in the military. In 2016, he campaigned for then-candidate Donald Trump and then, as a Trump appointee, helped oversee the Western hemisphere for the Pentagon as the equivalent of a three-star general.
de la Pena, told Breitbart News Daily guest host Matthew Boyle he remains thankful for America for giving him his shot at the American dream.
“I owe everything I am to this country, this is the birthplace of the American dream, Virginia is the cradle of the American experiment, it created the greatest good for the world in the history of humanity,” he said.
