Governor George Allen, Reagan Ranch Presidential Scholar
George F. Allen served the Commonwealth of Virginia for more than 20 years, as governor, in both bodies of the United States Congress, and as a delegate holding Thomas Jefferson’s seat in the Virginia General Assembly.
Sworn in as governor in 1994, George Allen brought sweeping reform that made Virginia a national model in economic development, public safety, education accountability, and creative government. As a self-described "Common Sense Jeffersonian Conservative," Allen pushed through cutting edge reform with bipartisan support in a legislature held by the opposition.
Elected to the United States Senate in 2000, George Allen continued to advocate policies to make America and Virginia a leader in innovation and technology. Senator Allen was unanimously elected a member of the Senate Republican Leadership as chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee in 2002.
Currently, George Allen serves as Young America’s Foundation’s Reagan Ranch Presidential Scholar.
