The party posted this note along with the petition:

The liberal owner of the "Red Hen" restaurant in Lexington threw out Sarah Huckabee in the middle of dinner just because she works for President Trump! Once again the intolerant left has shown its true colors.

Sign the boycott petition below so we can show the Red Hen and it's liberal supporters that patriotic Trump supporters are the silent majority in Virginia!
