Amanda Chase (née Freeman; born December 1, 1969) is an American politician. Since 2016, she has been a member of the Virginia Senate for the 11th District, representing Amelia County, the city of Colonial Heights, and part of Chesterfield County. In 2020, Chase announced her campaign for the Republican nomination for governor of Virginia in 2021.Chase attended the Donald Trump rally preceding the 2021 storming of the United States Capitol, where she appeared to voice support for rioters by calling them "patriots" and suggesting that President Trump might still be sworn in. She also stated, "The insurrection is actually the deep state with the politicians working against the people to overthrow our government." She also accused fellow Republicans of various improprieties. The Virginia State Senate censured Chase on a 24–9 vote (with 3 Republicans joining the majority) for "conduct unbecoming a senator" and "fomenting insurrection against the United States." This was the first censure of a Virginia state senator since 1987. Despite saying she would "wear the censure as a badge of honor," Chase filed a federal lawsuit against the Virginia State Senate, which was subsequently dismissed.
