A Day of Endorsements
The winners of the November election have yet to take office, but today the race for Governor in Virginia will be up to almost full speed. Two of the major candidates have important announcements and events planned today in support of their campaign.
11:30am: Attorney General Bob McDonnell (R) hosts the popular Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal in Richmond. Jindal will appear with McDonnell at a press event at the Jefferson Hotel and then later headline a private fundraiser at the Commonwealth Club.
2pm: Del. Brian Moran (D) will hold a press conference call where he will announce another major endorsement. Already Moran has picked up the nod of prominent party faithful, including the Democratic Party of Virginia’s governing body, the majority of elected Democrats in Loudoun County, and Democratic leaders in Martinsville. He calls this series of endorsements his “Virginia Values Tour”.
I will have a breakdown of the Moran announcement on-air and online as well.
