Delegate (VA-30) Nick Freitas is a battle-tested, battle-ready constitutional conservative. Nick has been involved in the grassroots Republican movement since the age of 15.
Nick enlisted in the United States Army after High School. Following the tragic events of September 11th, 2001, Nick served two combat tours as a Green Beret in the Middle East. After Nick’s service as a Green Beret, he became Director of Operations for a service-disabled, veteran-owned defense contractor. Nick is currently serving his second term as a Virginia House of Delegates member, originally elected in 2015. He is a defender of the Right-to-life movement and has sworn to uphold and protect the Constitution. Freitas was a 2018 Republican candidate who sought election to the U.S. Senate from Virginia.
Nick Freitas has been married to his high school sweet heart and wife Tina Freitas since 1999. They have 3 children, Lillyana, Luke and Alexandria. Nick and Tina have both been dedicated to conservative principles and actively worked on behalf of the Republican Party since High School. Nick’s mother was a President of a Republican Women’s organization, and Nick was walking precincts for our Republican candidates since he was 15.
Immediately following high school Nick joined the Army and served with the 82nd Airborne Division and 25th Light Infantry Division as an Infantryman. After September 11th Nick volunteered for US Army Special Forces (Green Berets) and eventually served 2 tours in Iraq as a Special Forces Weapons SGT and Special Forces Intelligence SGT. Even during that time Nick actively worked on behalf of conservative principles and the Republican Party by writing and advocating for Republican candidates.
Honorably discharged in 2009, Nick moved his family to Virginia where he began working as an instructor and Program Manager. Within 3 years Nick rose to become the Director of Operations for a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Company providing direct support to our service men and women conducting counter insurgency and counter IED operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. During that same time Nick moved to Culpeper and immediately became involved with the local Republican unit.
Nick was asked by then Virginia Senate candidate Bryce Reeves to lead his grass roots operations in Culpeper. Bryce Reeves went on to defeat a 28 year Democrat incumbent, with a Republican Senate candidate carrying Culpeper for the first time since it was included in the 17th Senate district. Nick went on to become the precinct coordinator for Culpeper, developing a grass roots strategy and organization that would set records in the county for volunteer hours and Republican voter turnout. Nick was unanimously elected to be the Culpeper County Republican Committee Chairman in 2014. Nick’s wife Tina served as the President of the Founding Fathers Republican Women’s club in Culpeper and his daughter Lilly was awarded the Youth Volunteer award for making over 1200 phone calls in support of our Republican candidates in 2012.
After 11 years in the Army and living in multiple places around the country the Freitas family is very happy to call Culpeper home.
