Robert G. Good (born September 11, 1965)[1] is an American politician who is the U.S. representative in Virginia's 5th congressional district. He is a member of the Republican Party.

Early life and education

Good was born in Pennsylvania and lived in North Jersey before moving to Lynchburg, Virginia, with his family at the age of nine.[2][3] Good attended Liberty Christian Academy, where he was a member of the wrestling team.[4] Good was awarded a partial wrestling scholarship to Liberty University, where he earned a Bachelor of Science in finance and a Master of Business Administration.[5]

Career

For 17 years, Good worked for Citi Financial.[6] When Good announced his campaign for Congress in 2019, he was serving as an associate athletic director for development at Liberty University.[7]

Good was a member of the Campbell County board of supervisors from 2016 to 2019.[8] During his three years as a county supervisor, Good supported socially conservative causes, voting to condemn the U.S. Supreme Court decision recognizing a constitutional right to same-sex marriage; to declare the county a "Second Amendment sanctuary"; and to call upon the Virginia General Assembly to restrict transgender bathroom use.[6]

U.S. House of Representatives

Election

2020

In the 2020 election, Good ran against incumbent Denver Riggleman in the Republican nominating convention for Virginia's 5th congressional district in the United States House of Representatives.[9] Good defeated Riggleman with 58% of the vote from party delegates during a drive-thru nominating convention instead of a primary election.[10] During the campaign, Good criticized Riggleman for officiating the same-sex wedding of two former campaign volunteers.[11][12]

Good campaigned in 2020 on a far-right platform, espousing hard-line views on immigration policy and opposition to same-sex marriage[13] and aligning himself with President Donald Trump.[6] Good called for the repeal of the Affordable Care Act[6] and rejected public-health measures to combat the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.[13] He did not wear a face covering or encourage the wearing of face coverings at campaign events, and opposed restrictions on businesses to slow the spread of the virus.[13] Good suggested that the wearing of face coverings might be harmful.[13] In the November 3, 2020 election, Good defeated Democratic nominee Cameron Webb, a physician.[6]

Tenure

After his election, Good appeared amid the pandemic at a rally in Washington, D.C., in which Trump supporters protested the Supreme Court's rejection of a lawsuit attempting to subvert the results of the election, in which Trump was defeated by Joe Biden.[13] During the rally, Good promoted the falsehood that Democrats had perpetrated a vast conspiracy to "steal" the election. Good claimed that while the virus was real, the pandemic was "phony." [13] Good told a maskless crowd that "this is a phony pandemic" and, the following day, suggested that precautions to prevent the spread of the disease were a "hoax."

On January 6, 2021, he voted against certifying the election of President-elect Joe Biden.[13] On January 17, 2021, Good voted against a House bill awarding Congressional Gold Medals to the U.S. Capitol Police and the District of Columbia Metropolitan Police Department for their roles in protecting the Capitol and members of Congress during the 2021 storming of the United States Capitol.[14][15]

Committee assignments

Caucus memberships

Personal life

Good and his wife, Tracey, have three children.[19] They live in Evington, a suburb of Lynchburg.

Good is a born again Christian and has described himself as a "biblical conservative."[20][21]
