Former National Finance Chair of the Republican National Committee
“As a Republican and especially as a Virginia businessman, I am supporting Terry McAuliffe for Governor. Terry is going to work with both parties to enact mainstream solutions that reduce traffic, improve our schools, and develop our workforce for the global marketplace. Ken Cuccinelli’s ideological agenda has divided Virginians and blocked progress on education and transportation for long enough.”
Schar, the founder and Executive Chairman of NVR Inc, a Fortune 500 company that is the fifth-largest home builder in the United States, has been a long-time supporter of Republican candidates across the nation and in Virginia. From 2005-2007, Schar was the National Finance Chair of the Republican National Committee, and has been an ally of Republican Governor Bob McDonnell. During McDonnell’s bid for governor in 2009, Schar was a major supporter of his campaign, and hosted a fundraiser at his McLean home for McDonnell that was headlined by Bobby Jindal.
